Environmental pollution is one of the worlds biggest issues that is happening nationwide.
Through Human Impact vs Nature with Eco-friendly Infrastructure we were able to present a
side by side comparison of two alternative ways of living. One si
Currently, you may be working alongside a wildlife rescue group,
making sure your pandas get the nutrients they need for the day at the zoo,
or possibly sitting working on an animal case. Though you are most definitely
doing one of these things, it was ha

Some igneous rocks are composed of pyroclastic materials welded together. Tuff is a
pyroclastic rock largely composed of volcanic ash surrounding fragments o

The Study of Chemical Reactions
The complete, step by step description of exactly which bonds are broken, formed, and in which order.
The study of the energy changes that accompany chemical and physical transformations. It allow
Structure and Synthesis of Alkenes
Alkenes (olefins) are hydrocarbons which have carboncarbon double bonds.
A double bond is a bond and a bond.
Double bond B.D.E.
= 146 kcal/mol
= 83 kcal/mol
Therefore B.D.E. must = 63 kcal/mol.
A bond is wea
This is study of the 3 dimensional arrangement in space of molecules.
In organic chemistry, subtle differences in spatial arrangements can give rise to prominent effects.
E.g. the isomers of butenoic acid:
The cis isomer (maleic acid) is t
Reactions of Alkenes
Since bonds are stronger than bonds, double bonds tend to react to convert the double bond into bonds
This is an addition reaction.
(Other types of reaction have been substitution and elimination).
Addition reactions are typically exo
Synthesis and Structure of Alcohols
Alcohols can be considered organic analogues of water.
Alcohols are usually classified as primary, secondary and tertiary.
Alcohols with the hydroxyl bound directly to an aromatic (benzene) ring are called phenols.
Alkynes or acetylenes are compounds that contain a carboncarbon triple bond.

H3C C C CH3
The triple bond results in a molecular formula of CnH2n-2
