  • Organic Chemistry
    • fractional distillation of crude oil is heating and evaporating the oil then the condensation at different temperatures as the vapour rises up the column
    • Examples of hydrocarbons include alkanes and alkenes
      • alkanes are saturated and have no double bonds
      • alkenes have at least one carbon-carbon double bond
    • ethene can undergo addition reactions with hydrogen and bromine
      • the reaction with bromine can be used as a test for alkenes
    • addition polymers are formed by the joining together of large numbers of molecules of a single monomer
    • thermoplastics melt easily but thermosets are heat resistant due to different structures
