Alkyl & Aryl Halides - Chapter Summary
Improve your ability to understand alkyl and aryl halides with this study chapter. This chapter will focus on topics such as organic molecules and halogens. This chapter covers the following goals:
- Learn how alkyl halide is formed
- Review the structure of aryl halide
- Distinguish the difference between saturated and unsaturated molecules
- Recall the characteristics of the halogen family
- Understand the classification of alcohols and alkanols
- Explain haloform reactions
- Describe chlorobenzene properties
- Discuss substitution reactions
- Identify Grignard reagents
Text and video lessons are available for as much review as you need to feel confident on these chemistry topics. Lesson quizzes offer a chance to assess your knowledge, as does a chapter exam that covers everything the chapter has to offer. If you need to go back into the lesson after taking this chapter test, you can do so.
1. Alkyl Halide: Structure & Reactions
In this lesson we will learn about alkyl halides and common alkyl halides in the world. We'll also learn how they are formed, why they are important, and what further reactions can be done with an alkyl halide.
2. Aryl Halide: Structure & Reactions
The primary focus of this lesson will be on a class of organic compounds called aryl halides. We will briefly discuss their general structure, then get a short survey of the different reactions they participate in.
3. Organic Molecules: Alkanes, Alkenes, Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Isomers
Learn more about carbon and hydrogen and see how these atoms come together to form distinct molecules. Also, study the difference between saturated and unsaturated molecules.
4. Halogens on the Periodic Table: Properties, Reactivity & Uses
Elements are grouped into families on the periodic table based on their chemical and physical properties. In this lesson, you will learn about a unique group known as the halogen family.
5. Alcohols & Alkanols: Classification & Functional Group
At first glance, the term alcohol and alkanol sound quite similar. In fact, there are similarities between both compounds. Explore this lesson to learn about alcohols and alkanols, how they are classified, and what their functional groups are.
6. Haloform Reaction: Definition & Examples
In this lesson the haloform reaction will be introduced and defined, in addition to the mechanism being outlined and the importance of the products discussed.
7. Chlorobenzene: Properties, Reactivity & Uses
In this lesson we will be focussing on the organic compound known as chlorobenzene. Topics we will be exploring include its properties, how it is synthesized, reactions it undergoes, and uses of the compound.
8. Substitution Reaction Examples in Organic Chemistry
In this lesson we will learn about substitution reactions. We'll explore the difference between electrophilic substitution reactions and nucleophilic substitution reactions, and we'll look at examples of both types.
9. Grignard Reagent: Formation, Synthesis & Preparation
What happens when you mix a little bit of magnesium with a sprinkle of alkyl and dash of halide? You get a pretty famous reagent named a Grignard reagent. Learn all about Grignard reagents and how to make them.
