2-1 Functional Groups Functional group: an atom or group of atoms within a molecule that shows a characteristic set of physical and chemical properties Functional groups are important for three reasons: 1. the units by which we divide organic compounds into classes 2. the sites of characteristic chemical reactions 3. the basis for naming organic compounds
