About This Quiz & Worksheet

This quiz and worksheet assessment is designed to help you determine how much you know about acyl and carbonyl groups and how they compare. You might try to take the quiz before viewing the lesson to see what you know and again after reviewing the lesson to measure how much you retained from it.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

You will do best on this quiz if you are able to do the following:

  • Describe an acyl group and a carbonyl group
  • Explain the difference in hybridization on the carbon bond between an acyl and a carbonyl group
  • Note what determines if an acyl group will undergo electrophilic substitution or electrophilic addition
  • Discuss the partial charge on an acyl group

Skills Practiced

  • Defining key concepts - ensure that you can accurately define an acyl group and a carbonyl group
  • Distinguishing differences - compare hybridization on the carbon bond between an acyl and a carbonyl group
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding the partial charge on an acyl group

Additional Learning

You can expand your understanding of this topic by studying the lesson titled Acyl Group vs. Carbonyl Group. Detailed information discussed in this lesson includes:

  • What forms the double bond in the carbonyl group
  • Which two bonds we are concerned with in the acyl group
  • What happens when the R group is a good leaving group and when it is not a good leaving group in an acyl group
