You'll review the structure of benzene and Friedel Craft's Reaction. The lessons in this chapter will help you reach the following goals:
- Discover where aliphatic hydrocarbons can be found
- Learn about what makes aromatic hydrocarbons unique
- Review the properties of alkanes
- Provide examples of alkenes
- Explain the uses of alkynes
- Identify the formula that is used for benzene
- Understand Friedel Craft's Reaction
Short, engaging lessons will help you learn more about these chemistry topics. The resources are also mobile-friendly, so you can study with your home computer or away from home on a tablet or other mobile device. Having this flexibility to study where or when you can will help make the most of your study time.
1. Aliphatic Hydrocarbons: Definition & Properties
Learn about aliphatic hydrocarbons and discover where you can find these types of compounds in everyday life. Understand the definition and properties of aliphatic hydrocarbons.
2. Aromatic Hydrocarbons: Definition, Examples & Uses
Learn about aromatic hydrocarbons, what they are and how they got their name. Understand what makes this class of chemicals so special. Learn some examples of aromatic hydrocarbons and the various ways they are used.
3. Alkanes: Definition, Properties, Formula & Examples
Alkanes are chemical compounds that play a very important role in our lives. Plastic products, gasoline, natural gas - alkanes are necessary for us to have these. In this lesson, we will learn all about alkanes.
4. Alkenes: Definition, Properties & Examples
Alkenes are organic compounds that are recognized by the double bonds that are present in their chemical structure. You can find alkenes in things such as rubber and plastic products that we use every day.
5. Alkynes: Properties, Uses, Formula & Examples
Alkynes are identified as organic chemical compounds that have triple bonds in their chemical structure. They are organic compounds that are important in various industrial applications. In this lesson, we will learn all about alkynes.
6. What is Benzene? - Uses, Structure & Formula
Benzene is one of the most widely used chemicals involved in manufacturing products we use on a daily basis, such as detergents, plastic and rubber. In this lesson, we will learn more about the structure, formula and various uses of benzene.
7. Friedel-Crafts Reactions: Alkylation & Acylation
Benzene is extremely stable, as such it is hard to force a reaction to occur involving benzene. Friedel-Crafts reaction is a way to make a new carbon-carbon bond on a benzene ring. This can occur through alkylation or acylation.
