Alkanes: Hydrocarbons with only single bonds. May be cyclic (has rings) or acyclic (no rings). May be straight or branched. H 3 C H 2 C C H 2 H 2 C C H 2 H 2 C C H 2 CH 3 H 2 C H 2 C C H 2 CH 2 CH 2 H 2 C H 3 C CH CH 3 C H 2 C CH 3 CH 3 CH 3 Straight Cyclic Branched

Alkenes: Hydrocarbons that have one or more carbon- carbon double bonds in their structure. Also called olefins . Remember, the double-bonds do not rotate.

Aromatic Hydrocarbons (Arenes): Aromatic hydrocarbons include those which have a “benzenoid” ring where the apparent double bonds are resonance delocalized. There are many aromatics but, for now, we will limit our discussion of them to these types. C C C C C C C C C C C C C C C C C C H H H H H H C C C C C C H H H H H H Benzenoid Ring Benzene Naphthalene

Functional Groups: A specific atom or group of atoms whose occurrence in a structure imparts predictable chemical and physical properties. For example: we have already seen that the presence of an O—H group in a molecule allows it to H-bond with other molecules of itself.

Classes of Compounds: CLASS: A group of compounds that share a common set of chemical and physical properties because they share a common functional group. It is important to note that often two or more simple functional groups must be combined to produce a more complex functional group that defines a class.

Alkenes : defined as a class of compounds by the presence of a carbon-carbon double bond. Alkynes : defined as a class of compounds by the presence of a carbon-carbon triple bond. Aromatics : thus far, defined as a class of compounds by the presence of a benzenoid ring in their structure.
