  • Alkenes
    • Naming alkenes
      • The names of alkenes end in -ene. The number preceeding the -ene indicates the position of the double bond.
      • Alkenes can be cyclic compounds.
      • An alkene with two C=C double bonds is called a diene.
    • Shape of alkenes
      • All bond angles around the C=C double bond are 120 sice there are three groups of electrons around each carbon atom (two bonds and one double bond).
    • Reactions of alkenes
      • Alkenes undergo electrophillic addition reactions.
      • Conditions- room temperature and pressure usually
