AS Chemistry Chains, Energy and Resources (OCR F322)

A thorough set of revision notes for OCRs AS chemistry sylabus, unit 2 (F322). I've checked the AQA syllabus and it seems pretty useful for AQA as well. Contains absolutely everything needed for the OCR syllabus, as well as some extra details to help answer "suggest why" questions. Not ideal if you just want some quick revision notes, but they're more condensed than a text book. Hope they come in useful

Organic Chemistry
Chemistry of the molecules based on carbon
The simplest organic compounds are hydrocarbons
Hydrocarbons are organic compounds containing carbon and hydrogen only
There are many organic molecules because:
o Carbon can form single, double and triple bonds with other carbon atoms, forming
chains or…

9 Non- Nonyl-

10 Dec- Decyl-

The smallest possible numbers are used when deciding which end of the carbon chain to number
1
The process of naming is:



1. Identify the parent chain (the longest chain) and assign the appropriate stem
2. Add a suffix or…

Carboxylic acid -C=O -oic acid No number ever
required as the
OH functional groups
is always on
carbon 1


Formula
An empirical formula is the simplest whole number ratio of atoms of each element present in a
compound
A molecular formula is the actual number of…

Hexan-2-ol
Hexan-3-ol


Chain isomers
Compounds can be branched or unbranched
When this changes, or branches occur in different places, a chain isomer is formed
E.g.




Butane 2-methyl-propane
Hexan-2-ol


Functional group isomers
The functional group can be different
These isomers are the most chemically different
E.g. both…

E is where the longest carbon chain continues on the same side of the C=C bond




E.g. Z-4-methyl-hept-3-ene




Cis-trans isomerism is a special case of E/Z isomerism in which two of the substituent groups are
the same. In this case, cis isomerism is when the same…

Electrophilic addition
An electrophile is an atom (or group of atoms) that is attracted to an electron-rich centre or
atom, where it accepts a pair of electrons to form a new covalent bond
Normally anything positively charged, or with a net dipole, or the ability to…
