Intro To Organic Chemistry

Name the 3 types of bonds in carbon compounds
Single bond, double bond, triple bond
1 of 13
Name the 4 types of formula
Displayed, structural, skeletal, three dimensional
2 of 13
What do curly arrows represent?
Movement of electrons
3 of 13
Match the suffixes to the carbon compound: -ane, -ene, -ol, -al, -one, -oic acid
-ane = alkane, -ene = alkene, -ol = alcohol, -al = aldehyde, -one = ketone, -oic acid = carboxylic acid
4 of 13
What are numbers used for within carbon compound names?
Identify where the side chains and functional groups are
5 of 13
How are functional groups within names organised?
Alphabetically
6 of 13
What is a homologous series?
A series of compounds with the same functional groups
7 of 13
Name two factors of a homologous series
Each series has a set formula, each member of the series increases by CH2 each time
8 of 13
What is positional isomerism?
Where the functional group is in a different place (1-chloropropane or 2-chloropropane)
9 of 13
What is functional group isomerism?
Different functional groups for the same formula (ethanol or methoxymethane)
10 of 13
What is chain isomerism?
Where the chain is a different length/different functional group but the same formula (propanol or methylethanol)
11 of 13
What is E-isomerism?
Functional groups appear on same side
12 of 13
What is Z-isomerism?
Functional groups appear on opposite sides
