  • Homologous Series
    • Family of organic compounds
      • Same functional group
      • Different cabin chain length
    • Have a general formula
    • Differs from the next in series by CH2
    • Length
      • Little affect on chemical reactivity
      • Affects physical properties
        • More carbon = increase in boiling and melting points
          • Inter-molecular forces increase
        • Chains reduces melting and boiling point
          • Molecules don't pack together as well
