  1. Methane and compounds whose functional group contains only carbon-carbon single bonds.
    They have the lowest density of all groups of organic compound.
    alkanes
  2. what are the carbons in alkane referred as
    methyl, primary, secondary, tertiary

    • -CH3, R-CH2, R2-C-H, R3-C-
    •             |          |
  3. Alkanes' violent reaction with oxygen at high temperatures that produces carbon dioxide, water, and heat
    combustion reaction
  4. This is formed when alkanes react with halogens in the presence of heat or light
    free radical
  5. initiation, propagation and termination are the three steps in this chain reaction
    Halogenation
  6. This first step of halogenation. The halogen starts as a diatomic molecule. The molecule is homolytically cleaved by heat or uv light resulting in a free radical.
    initiation
  7. the second step of halogenation. Most of the products are produced in this step
    propagation
  8. The final step of halogenation. Either two radicals bond or a radical bonds to the wall of the container to end the chain reaction.
    termination
  9. A carbon chain with a carbon-carbon double bond. Have one pi and one sigma bond
    alkene
  10. Synthesis of an alkene occurs via this type of reaction
    elimination reaction
  11. This is an E1 reaction where an alcohol forms an alkene in the presence of hot concentrated acid
    dehydration of an alcohol
  12. List from most stable to least stable types of carbons
    3o, 2o, 1o, methyl
  13. This rule states that the major product of elimination will be the most substituted alkene
