Ch 14: OAE Chemistry: Inorganic & Organic Compounds

About This Chapter

Preparing for the OAE Chemistry exam is easy with these short and flexible video lessons on organic and inorganic compounds. Each lesson focuses on a concept that you could be asked about on the exam.

OAE Chemistry: Inorganic and Organic Compounds - Chapter Summary

If you haven't thought about inorganic and organic compounds since you passed your last college chemistry course, then you're in the right place to review all the topics you're a little rusty on as you prepare for the OAE Chemistry exam. The lessons in this chapter cover essential exam-related subjects, including:

  • Pure and applied chemistry
  • Intramolecular bonding
  • Organic and inorganic macromolecule identification
  • Alkanes, isomers, alkenes and aromatic hydrocarbons
  • Organic molecule functional groups
  • Structural and geometric isomers

Simplify your preparations for the OAE Chemistry exam by watching quick videos that last about 5-6 minutes. You can watch all the videos in this chapter for a full review or just pick the lessons that you need the most help with. You can even take these lessons with you; our videos are mobile-friendly so you can watch them from your smartphone or tablet.

Objectives of the OAE Chemistry: Inorganic and Organic Compounds Chapter

The OAE Chemistry exam assesses your knowledge of chemistry and is a requirement for licensure as a chemistry teacher in Ohio. This multiple-choice exam will test your abilities in five domains, including energy and chemical bonding, which is the location for inorganic and organic compound questions. This domain has 23% of the total questions on the exam.

Before you take the exam, use the self-assessment quizzes that we offer with each lesson to get used to the style of the questions you'll be asked on the exam.

Test your knowledge with a 30-question chapter practice test
Overview of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry

1. Overview of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry

The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry is an important organization within the chemistry world. In this lesson we will go over what this organization does and why it is important.

Intramolecular Bonding and Identification of Organic and Inorganic Macromolecules

2. Intramolecular Bonding and Identification of Organic and Inorganic Macromolecules

Understand what a macromolecule is and be able to identify both organic and inorganic macromolecules. Organic molecules include proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and nucleic acids.

Organic Molecules: Alkanes, Alkenes, Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Isomers

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.

Functional Groups in Organic Molecules

4. Functional Groups in Organic Molecules

Learn what an organic compound is and how their functional groups affect them. Identify the different types of functional groups including alcohols, alkyl halides, ketones, aldehydes, ethers, carboxylic acids and esters.

Structural Isomers: Definition & Examples

5. Structural Isomers: Definition & Examples

Molecular formulas don't always tell us how the atoms are arranged within a molecule. When one formula can lead us to different arrangements of atoms, the results are referred to as structural isomers, examples of which we'll explore in this lesson.

Geometric Isomers: Definition & Examples

6. Geometric Isomers: Definition & Examples

This lesson provides a definition of geometric isomers, explains how they arise, and how to identify them. In addition to basic examples from chemistry, the lesson shares more complex examples from biochemistry to show how prevalent and vital geometric isomers are.

Optical Isomers: Definition & Examples

7. Optical Isomers: Definition & Examples

Isomers are molecules that are the same...yet different. The difference might be in the structure, or it might be in the three-dimensional arrangement. In this lesson, you'll learn about one specific type of isomer that falls into the latter category, the optical isomer.
