Organic chemistry
Introduction - Functional group: group of atoms which gives an organic compound its
characteristic
properties and reactions - General formula: expresses ratio between atoms in a
homologous series - Homologous series: group of compounds with the same general
formula, trend in
chemical and physical properties
Naming and drawing…

Alternative fuels - Concentration of greenhouse gases in the air is rising, mostly from
burning of fossil fuels - Fossil fuels are burnt in power stations, aviation, industries,
homes and vehicles - CO2 produced enhances greenhouse effect global warming -
To reduce CO2 emissions alternative fuels are needed (e.g. Biofuels…

- Bioethanol is the main biofuel and is made by fermenting carbohydrates in crops like
sugarcane,
converting glucose to ethanol and CO2 with a catalyst - Biodiesel is used by extracting
and processing oils from crops like rapeseed
Fractional distillation - Necessary as crude oil contains too many long hydrocarbons…
