SCH4UIntroduction to Organic Chemistry and AlkanesLearning GoalsoCommunicate the importance of carbon to organic chemistry.oDraw alkanes in the 4 major representations.oExplain the concept of isomerism and relate variations in the properties of alkaneisomers to their structural formulas.Minds OnCarbon!It is one of the most essential elements to “life on earth”. In fact, all life onearth is based on chains of carbon atoms. What makes carbon so special?Speak with the people beside you… try torecall anything and everything we learnedaboutCARBON.ActionOrganic ChemistryxOrganic chemistry is a branch of chemistry that studies the structure, propertiesand reactions oforganic compounds, which contain carbon in covalent bonding.oRubber, plastics, fuels, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, detergents, coatings,paints and many more everyday use products consist of organiccompounds.xHistorically, it was believed that an organic compound could only be produced byliving things.
