Alkenes

L.O.

  • I can draw the structural and molecular formula of the first four alkenes.

  • I know the test for alkenes and can use it to identify an alkene from an alkane.

Single covalent bond

C

C

Double covalent bond

Alkenes

  • When carbon forms compounds each carbon atom always forms four bonds.

  • This does not, however, mean that each carbon is joined to four other atoms.

  • It is possible to have bonds grouped into pairs. These are called double bonds.

  • Alkenes contain carbon atoms joined by double covalent bonds.

Ethene - formula

  • The simplest alkene is ethene.

  • It has the formula C2H4

  • The carbon atoms are joined together by a double bond.

  • Its displayed formula may be drawn in slightly different forms but should always clearly show the double bond.

  • Sometimes the displayed formula is drawn as shown.


Alkenes

Activity

  • What will be the formula for alkenes containing the following numbers of carbons?

C11H22

C13H26

C32H64

C21H42


Saturated or unsaturated

Saturated or Unsaturated?

  • Alkanes are saturated.

  • Saturated means “full up”.

  • Every carbon atom has already used all four of it’s bonds to join to four other atoms. No other atoms can be added.

  • Alkenes are unsaturated.

  • They have a double bond that could instead become two single bonds. This means that other atoms can be added. It is not “full up”.


Alkenes

Gas red colourless

Bromine water +alkene

Test for Alkenes

When bromine water is added to an

alkane nothing happens

but when bromine is added to an alkene

the red colour of the bromine disappears.

1,2 dibromoethane
