About This Chapter
Cyanides, Isocyanides & Nitro Compounds - Chapter Summary
Use this chapter to refresh your memory on cyanides, isocyanide, and nitro compounds. Our lessons can be used to help you brush up on concepts like primary amines, alkyl halide, reduction, and hydrolysis. If you have no previous knowledge of this topic, these lessons provide an extensive overview that will get you up to speed in no time.
The instructors give you a step-by-step explanation of how different compounds and elements are prepared using various processes and mediums. The practical applications of these compounds and elements is also discussed. Once you complete the chapter, you will be ready to:
- Describe the effects and formula of cyanide
- Identify the uses of isocyanide
- Point out the uses and structure of nitrobenzene
- Show the reactions and the structure of amine
- Establish the formula and uses of aniline
Besides clear and concise learning materials, we also give you the added advantage of assessment tools. Every lesson we offer comes with a multiple-choice quiz that measures your knowledge of definitions, formulas, chemical structure, and more. Our quizzes let you instantly verify whether you understand the information you are learning. If you don't score well on the quiz, you can always go back through the lesson until you master the materials.
1. What is Cyanide? - Definition, Formula & Effects
Cyanide is a poison which has been used since the ancient Egyptians, but how does it work? To help us answer this question, we will learn about cyanide's chemical structure, where it's found, and how it interacts with key biological molecules in the human body.
2. Isocyanide: Structure, Formula & Uses
In this lesson, we will be learning about a class of organic compounds called isocyanides. Topics to be explored will be their properties, synthesis, reactions, and applications for their use.
3. Nitrobenzene: Structure, Formula & Uses
In this lesson, we will learn about nitrobenzene, an aromatic derivative of benzene. We will learn about its properties, how it is produced, and how it is typically used.
4. Amine: Definition, Structure, Reactions & Formula
What does the fried fish you eat and dog poop have in common? The answer is amines. In this lesson, we will learn about the chemical structure of amines and how they react.
5. Aniline: Structure, Formula & Uses
Did you know that a chemical compound called aniline is necessary for the indigo color of our jeans? It is used in several other areas as well. In this lesson, we will learn all about the structure, formula, and uses of aniline.
