Organic Chemistry

Aliphatic - chains
Aromatic - rings
Saturated - all bonds are used - single bonds
Unsaturated - not all bonds are used - double bonds

Cracking alkanes produces a smaller chain alkane and alkene
Isomerisation turns unbranched alkanes into branched alkanes
Reforming aliphatic hydrocarbons can be converted into aromatic hydrocarbons

Primary alcohol oxidises to Aldehyde oxidises to Carboxylic acid
Butan-1-ol > Butanal > Butanoic acid
Secondary alcohol oxidises to Ketone
Butan-1-ol > Butanone
Tertiary alcohol does not oxidise
K2Cr2O7 (acidified potassium dichromate) orange > green

Esterification carboxylic acid + alcohol > ester + water
