1. 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.
2. Addition Reactions of Alkenes
There are several different types of reactions in organic chemistry. This lesson will focus on the addition reactions of alkenes. We'll give step by step examples so you understand why atoms move where they do.
3. Polymerization of Alkenes
In this lesson we will discuss how addition polymers are formed. We will look into the formation, properties and uses of poly(ethene) and poly(propene).
