Course Access: 300 days access
Organic chemistry is an important topic which makes up a large portion of the leaving cert paper. In this lesson, we will first discuss 8 families of chemical compounds called homologous series – the alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids and esters. We will then describe the different types of chemical reactions that these compounds can take part in, and how members from one family can be converted to members of another.
