CHEMISTRY 120 – CHAPTER 10 – REVIEW Introduction to Organic Chemistry: Alkanes Organic: a chemical containing carbon. o Characteristics: covalent bonds, low mp, low bp, flammable, non-polar, non- electrolytes. o Carbon VSEPR model: 4 bonding pairs whose bond angle is 109° ( tetrahedral shape). Alkanes: organic compounds that, 1) contain only carbon and hydrogen, have only single bonds. o Molecular formula: C n H n+2 (n = number of carbon atoms) o Nomenclature: name ends in –ane. Prefixes: 1 = methane, 2 = ethane, 3 = propane, 4 = butane, 5 = pentane….. o Cycloalkanes: have 2 fewer hydrogens than open chain alkanes. Nomenclature: prefix alkane name with cyclo. o C 1 to C 4 alkanes: gas, used as heating fuels. o C 5 to C 8 alkanes: liquid, used in gasoline. o C 9 to C 17 : liquids with high boiling points, kerosene, jet fuel. o C 18+ alkanes: waxes, seal moisture in/out of fruits. Structural isomers: Same formula but different structure (arrangement of atoms).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
