2 of 25
Carboxylic Acids
functional group -COOH
3 of 25
Esters
The product made from the reaction of Carboxylic acids and alcohols
4 of 25
Fats
esters of glycerol and fatty acids
5 of 25
Saturated Fats
Single bonds - unreactive
6 of 25
Unsaturated Fats

Breaking of Bonds. Gives out heat.
9 of 25
Activation Energy
The minimum energy required to start a reaction
10 of 25
Reversible reaction
Products react together to produce original reactants
11 of 25
Equilibrium
Forward AND backward reactions that occur at the same time, concentration of r and p stay the same
12 of 25
Strong acids
IONISE completely in water. NO equilibrium
13 of 25
Weak Acids

14 of 25
Qualitative analysis
identifies chemicals in a substance
15 of 25
quantitative analysis
determines AMOUNT of chemical in substance

Chromotography
separates a substance as it moves between the mobile and the stationary phase
17 of 25
Gas chromotography
able to separate complex mixtures
18 of 25

Calculate the concentration of an acid by finding how much alkali is needed to neutralise it
19 of 25
R(1) Value
Distance travelled by substances/ Distance travelled by solvent
20 of 25
Concentration
Mass/ Volume

Bulk and Fine chemicals
Bulk- large amounts. Fine - small amounts
22 of 25
Green chemistry
principles that go towards a more sustainable process
23 of 25
Catalyst
Speeds up reactions, therefore reducing the amount of energy put into the reaction. Non reusable
