General Chemistry 2 Notes: Ch. 15   Rules of thumb:  Carbon always has 4 bonds Nitrogen typically has 3 bonds  Oxygen typically has 2 bonds  Halogens typically have 1 bond   Organic Chemistry  The study of carbon compounds  Mainly concerns carbon bound to hydrogen  Other common elements are H, F, N, O, P, S, Cl, Br, and I.   Organic molecules are unique due to:  Structural Complexity Chemical diversity   Structural Complexity: Carbon 4 valence electrons  Does not readily form ionic compounds  Always follows the octet rule  Has a unique ability to catenate: bind to itself.  Small size of Carbon allows for good orbital overlap, causing strong bonds.  Carbon has great stability.   Chemical Diversity: Carbon  Stable bonding to heteroatoms, which are same charged atoms.  Forms both linear and ring structures.  May form isomers as well.  Carbon­carbon double bonds are highly reactive.   Functional Groups: Combination of atoms that undergo specific, characteristic reactions. ­Most organic reactions occur at the functional groups.  Hydrocarbons: An organic compound made of hydrogens and carbons.  ­Single bonds may rotate freely in hydrocarbons.  Ex:   Alkanes:  Hydrocarbons with only single bonds. Called saturated hydrocarbons.   Naming Organic Compounds: ­ Prefix + Root + Suffix ­ Root is the number of the longest, continuous carbon chain.  ­ Roots are: meth for 1, eth for 2, prop for 3, but for 4, pent for 5, hex for 6, hept for 7,  oct for 8, non for 9, and dec for 10.  ­ Suffix for alkanes is –ane.  ­ Each prefix identifies branches off of a main carbon chain.   An example of an alkane is:  For this alkane, the longest carbon chain is 5, so the root is pent­ Then, there are 3 branches, located at carbon 2 and 4. Lastly, those branches are each only one carbon long, so they are methyl.  Therefore, the name of this alkane is 2,2,4­methylpentane.   These compounds may also be drawn in a shorthand version, which may be seen here:  In the shorthand, every numbered point is an individual carbon atom.   Alkenes: Hydrocarbons with a Carbon­Carbon double bond.  ­Unsaturated hydrocarbons with restricted rotation due to double bond.   For their names, the alkene suffix is –ene.   These may also be cis and trans isomers due to the double bond.  ­Trans are when the chain is the opposite following the double bonds ­Cis are when the chain is mirrored on both side of the double bonds.   Alkynes:  Hydrocarbons with at least  one Carbon­Carbon triple bond.  ­Unsaturated hydrocarbons.  ­Suffix is –yne.  Ex:  ­ This is pentyne because the longest chain of Carbons is 5 Carbons long.  ­ It has the 2 as a prefix for there is a triple bond between Carbon 2 and carbon 3.

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
