(SN1, SN2) of Halides
The Unimolecular (SN1) Reaction: 2 steps
R-X dissociates, forming a carbocation intermediate, R+, and the
leaving group, X-.
Slow step = rate determining
Melting point: temperature at which solid is in equilibrium with its
Melting point range: span of temperatures from the point at which
the crystals first begin to liquefy to t
an Unknown Alcohol
Classification Tests are qualitative tests which can indicate the presence
of a particular functional group, such as an aldehyde or an alcohol.
Two inviolable rules when performing classific
Properties of Hydrocarbons
The three key categories of hydrocarbons are saturated, unsaturated, and
These categories have a large influence on both the reactivity and physical
properties of organic compounds.
Preparation of Triphenylmethanol
Grignard reagents are highly reactive organometallic reagents generated by
treating alkyl or aryl halides with magnesium metal in the presence of an anhydrous
Gas Chromatography Experiment
- GC is a common technique used to separate and identify volatile organic
compounds (analytes). As the gas moves the analyte across the stationary phase,
the analyte will be in equilibrium with the
Separating Acids and Neutral Compounds
a process that selectively dissolves one or more compounds into an appropriate
solvent. The resulting solution is called an extract.

Diphenylacetylene from Stilbene
The most common applications of alkene halogenation are chlorination
Alcohol dehydration is an acid catalyzed reaction, which can be
performed by strong, concentrated mineral acids such as sulfuric
acid (H2SO4) and phosphoric acid (H3PO4).
