Functional Groups functional group : an atom, or group of atoms (with specific connectivity), exhibiting identical chemical reactivity regardless of the molecule containing it; the reactivity of individual functional groups dictates the reactivity of the molecule of which they are a part divide organic compounds into classes sites of characteristic chemical reactions serve as basis for naming organic compounds A. Alkanes contain only carbon-carbon and carbon-hydrogen single bonds B. Alkenes contain a carbon-carbon double bond C. Alkynes contain a carbon-carbon triple bond
