DR. JIM BLOXTON’S OPTIONAL STUDY GUIDE TO ACCOMPANY CHEM 1022 CHAPTER 12 ALKENES AND ALKYNES Note: This is an optional study guide. This study guide is not an exhaustive list of questions that could appear on quizzes or exams. These are sample questions that may or may not be used on a quiz or midterm exam or final exam. Other questions that are not found on this study guide will be on actual quizzes, midterm and final exams. It is important to do all of the homework problems that are in your Chem 1022 lecture text in addition to the questions in this study guide. Make sure that you do all of the Chemical Connections homework questions that have assigned. Learn the basic principles and then be prepared to apply the principles to problems that you have not seen before. Note: It is very important to remember that Chemistry is a cumulative topic and that the material that was covered in previous chapters needs to be reviewed as this material will continue to reappear in concepts that are needed to solve new problems. The following questions are to be answered from CHEM 1022 CHAPTER 12 LECTURE TEXT, LECTURE NOTES AND LECTURE SLIDES. 1. What can an unsaturated compound contain that makes the compound an unsaturated compound? 2. What is an alkene and what is the name and structure of the simplest alkene? 3. What is an alkyne and what is the name and structure of the simplest alkyne? 4. What is thermal cracking? 5. What is the bond angle and geometry about the carbon that is part of the carbon-carbon double bond in ethylene and other alkenes? Is the ethylene a flat or planar molecule? Are all carbon-carbon double bonds flat or planar? 6. Is free rotation possible about the carbon-carbon double bond? Does this cause the carbon-carbon double bond to be planar? Is free rotation possible about the carbon- carbon single bond? 7. What are cis-trans isomers? Is this a type of stereoisomerism? Give some examples. Draw line bond formulas, condensed structural formulas and give the names of the compounds. 1

8. What characteristic of rings and double bonds makes it possible to have cis-trans isomers? 9. What types of alkenes can show cis-trans isomerism? 10. Do cis-trans isomers have the same physical and chemical properties?
