  • Alkanes and Alkenes
    • Displayed formula
      • Alkanes
      • Alkenes
    • Halogens react with alkanes in the presence of UV light to make haloalkanes
      • methane + bromine --> bromethane  + hydrogen bromide
        • hydrogen atom is substituted by the halogen in a substitution reaction
    • Halogen react with alkenes forming haloalkenes
      • ethene + bromine --> dibromoethane
        • double bond is split and a halogen atom is added to each carbon making it an addition reaction
        • Orange bromine water become colourless
