Organic Chemistry is an area of Chemistry that stands on its own.
There are so many vital definitions and reactions to learning that it can feel overwhelming.
The non-linear approach to the questions can cause panic.
As chemistry exams go, a whole paper in the final exam may be devoted to Organic Chemistry.
It is essential to become competent in Organic Chemistry because it is a fundamental and large part of any Chemistry course. Building on the Introduction to the Fundamentals of Organic Chemistry, this course looks at the Alkanes functional group. It describes the bonding and properties of the alkanes and the mechanism by which they react with halogens in the presence of ultraviolet light. The environmental effects of our use of alkanes are also given. The assessment questions at the end of each section offer plenty of practice in applying the concepts. Feedback is immediate and individualized, with access to exclusive online tutorials to explain how to do the question where it has been problematic.
What will you learn in this course?
How alkanes and cycloalkanes are structured and their general formulae.
The physical and chemical properties of alkanes.
The chemical reactions of alkanes and their reagents and conditions.
The mechanism for the free radical substitution reaction of alkanes with halogens.
The impact of using alkanes on the environment.
