3 Organic Compounds Alkanes and Cycloalkanes Based on McMurry s Organic Chemistry 6th edition Chapter 3 I Families of Organic Compounds Organic compounds can be grouped into families by their common structural features We shall survey the nature of the compounds in a tour of the families in this course This chapter deals with alkanes compounds that contain only carbons and hydrogens all connected exclusively by single bonds 31 Functional Groups Functional group collection of atoms at a site within a molecule with a common bonding pattern I The group reacts in a typical way generally independent of the rest of the molecule For example the double bonds in simple and complex alkenes react with bromine in the same way See Figure 31 Double bond CH3 H C C H20 CH2 H H H20 1 51 C C C CH

functional groups affect the reactions structure and physical properties of every compound in which they occur Types of Functional Groups Multiple Carbon Carbon Bonds Akenes have a 00 double bond Alkynes have a 00 triple bond Arenes or aromatic hydrocarbons have special bonds that are represented as alternating single and double C C bonds in a sixmembered ring Multiple Carbon Carbon Bonds C C
