2. What is a functional group?
- A group of atoms or an atom which give a compound distinctive properties
- The -COOH in an alcohol , for example
- A family of molecules that all have a homologous series attatched
- The columns of the periodic table
3. What is the difference between a ketone and an aldehyde?
- A ketone can be formed from the oxidation by distillation of a primary alchol
- A ketone has an C=O group in the middle of it's molcule, thus with an alkyl group on each side. In an aldehyde the C=O is found at the end of the molecule with an H and an alkyl group
- An aldehyde has an C=O group in the middle of it's molcule, thus with an alkyl group on each side. In a ketone the C=O is found at the end of the molecule with an H and an alkyl group
- An ketone will form a dark red precipitate of Copper(I) Oxide with Fehling's solution but an aldehyde will not
4. What is the product of a halogenalkane reacting with KOH under ethanolic conditions?
- An alcohol with a halogen group (addition)
- A salt and water
- An alkene, water and KX (elimination)
- An alcohol and KX (subsitution)
5. Why is 2-Bromopropane the major product of the reaction of propene and HBr?
- Because the intermediary carbocation is more stable (the charge is spread over more atoms)
- It is not, the products are equally likely as propene is symmetrical
- There is less steric hinderance for the reaction compared to 1-Bromopropane
- The H will attack where there are fewer H's already
