About This Chapter
Organic Reactions & Greenhouse Gases - Chapter Summary
While studying these lessons, you will heighten your understanding of organic reactions and greenhouse gases. Some of the topics covered include the enhanced greenhouse effect and examples of combustion reactions. This chapter can also help you understand ionic equations. After reviewing the lessons, you should be ready to:
- Provide examples of organic chemical reactions
- Discuss redox, esterification, and fermentation
- Explain how elimination reactions create alkenes from alkanes
- Define combustion reaction
- Predict when precipitation will form
- List the five main greenhouse gases
These lessons on organic reactions and greenhouse gases are concise and only take about 5 minutes to complete. Important words are highlighted in bold for quick reference and review. A brief quiz is available to test your knowledge after each lesson, and the quizzes can be printed for use as a study tool.
1. Organic Chemical Reactions: Addition, Substitution, Polymerization & Cracking
Organic molecules can combine, swap atoms, break apart and even make more of themselves. In this lesson, we will explore several organic reactions with examples.
2. Organic Chemical Reactions: Redox, Esterification & Fermentation
There are many different types of reactions that occur in organic chemistry. This lesson will highlight three reactions, explaining which organic molecules are the reactants and which are the products, as well as what occurs during the reaction.
3. Elimination Reactions In Organic Chemistry
In this lesson, we'll explore organic chemistry elimination reactions. Learn how elimination reactions create alkenes from alkanes, and why their creation is difficult unless alcohols and alkyl halides are there to help.
4. Combustion Reaction: Definition & Examples
Chemical reactions occur every day. Some of them are quite useful to us. In this lesson, you will learn about chemical reactions that are known as combustion reactions.
5. Greenhouse Gases and the Enhanced Greenhouse Effect
In this video lesson, you will learn about the five main greenhouse gases and how their unnaturally high concentrations are leading to the enhanced greenhouse effect and global climate change on Earth.
