  • Functional Groups

    What is a Functional Group? A functional group is a portion of a molecule that is a recognizable/classified group of bound atoms. In organic chemistry it is very common to see molecules comprised mainly of a carbon backbone with functional groups attached to the chain. The functional group gives the molecule its properties‚ regardless of what molecule contains it*; they are centers of chemical reactivity. The functional groups within a molecule need to be identified when naming. *Definition taken

  • Testing for Alkene Functional Group

    Testing for functional groups The chemistry for carbon is vast; there are in excess of ten million known carbon compounds. It is estimated that 300000 new carbon compounds are discovered each year. Organic molecules contain functional groups that are responsible for their chemical properties. Functional groups will react with certain regents in predictable ways‚ making it possible to develop diagnostic reactions to test for their presence in an organic molecule. Common functional groups found in

  • Chemical Tests for Unknown Functional Groups

    Chemical T ests for Unknowns Chemical tests have been developed as a means of identifying what functional groups are present in an unknown compound. Since IR and NMR spectroscopy has been developed‚ they are no longer critical to unknown analysis‚ but they can still be useful for confirming what you have determined by spectroscopy. Some of them look cool too! In order for a chemical reaction to work as a chemical test‚ it must 1) create a visible result (a color change‚ a precipitate‚ etc)
