What should be the degree of unsaturation of Et3N. I'm trying to calculate and it comes out 0, but my text book tells me the answer is 3. I'm taking the number of C atoms to be 6 and H atoms to be 15 and adding the 1 nitrogen atom and dividing it by 2, this gives me 0 as the answer. Maybe, I am making a mistake somewhere.

    $\begingroup$ Do you mean degree of unsaturation? Otherwise, I don't know what you are asking. $\endgroup$
