Aim: What is organic chemistry? QQ: None Do Now: What do sugar, caffeine, aspirin and plastic all have in common? Organic Chemistry: the study of carbon and most carbon-based compounds There are many more organic compounds than inorganic compounds…why? Carbon is able to form up to 4 covalent bonds Saturated and Unsaturated Saturated: compound containing only carbon-carbon single bonds Unsaturated: compound containing at least one double or triple carbon-carbon bond Representing Organic Molecules Molecular Formula Provides the type and quantity of atoms Methane: Ethane: CH 4 C 2 H 6 Structural Formula Shows how the molecule looks in 2D Methane: Ethane: Stereochemistry Formula Shows how the molecule looks in 3D Methane: Ethane: Condensed Structural Formula

Unformatted text preview: Hybrid of the molecular and structural formulas Methane: Ethane: CH 4 CH 3 CH 3 Isomers: substances that have identical molecular formulas, but different structural formulas. These compounds may have different properties. Isomers of C 5 H 12 Pentane 2-methyl butane 2,2-dimethyl propane BP = 36 o C BP = 28 o C BP = 9.5 o C Practice: draw the isomers that exist for C 6 H 14 Hintthere are 5 of them! Conclusions Organic chemistry focuses on the study of carbon-based compounds Millions of different organic compounds exist There are a variety of ways to represent organic compounds Isomers are molecules with the same molecular formula, but different structural formulas...
