All Advanced Organic Chemistry Notes

Index of GCSE/IGCSE Oil - Useful Products Chemistry Revision Notes



1.1 What are Alkanes? The Molecular Structure and Nomenclature of Alkanes

(Also includes an introduction on how to write and display alkane formulae including isomers)

(Also functions as a general introduction to organic structure before using and looking at functional groups and homologous series)

The chain isomerism of alkanes is fully described on another page, including any differences in physical properties like boiling point.

AND important notes on how to deduce empirical and molecular formula including alkane examples

Calculation of empirical formula, deducing molecular formula of a compound starting with % mass composition)

ALSO quizzes involving alkanes

Combined multiple choice and type in name quiz on the structure and naming of alkanes

Matching pair quiz on hydrocarbon structure

Do 3rd quiz combing naming quiz with a 3rd database of alkane chemistry questions?

1.2 Sources of alkanes, the boiling points of alkanes and fractional distillation of crude oil into useful products

(Includes links to GCSE notes (which must be read too) and extra A level notes on intermolecular bonding forces)

1.3 Modification of alkanes by cracking, isomerisation and reforming

(Includes links to GCSE notes (which must be read too) and extra A level notes explaining the processes and reasons for the modifications to crude oil fractions)

1.4 Complete and incomplete combustion of alkanes and environmental pollution

(Includes links to GCSE notes (which must be read too) and extra A level notes on enthalpy calculations and trends and pollution)

1.5 Modification of hydrocarbon fuel mixtures, global warming-climate change and alternative fuels

(Includes links to GCSE notes on e.g. global warming, biodiesel, hydrogen, bioethanol etc.)

1.6 Chlorination and bromination of alkanes, reaction mechanisms and uses of products

(The reaction of alkanes with halogens, diversity and uses of products and reaction mechanisms)
