- How were they formed?

- Fractional distillation

  • Pollution

  • Greenhouse effect

  • Renewable / non renewable energy

  • Hydrocarbons

  • Alkanes

  • Alkenes

  • Cycloalkanes

  • Hydrocarbons

  • Isomerism

  • Saturation / Unsaturation

  • Cracking


Petrol

Petrol

  • This petrol fraction is not

  • Ready to be used as a fuel.

  • Straight chain hydrocarbons

  • do not perform well as fuels

  • In petrol burning engines.

  • You can improve performance by adding aromatic & branched chain hydrocarbons


Aliphatic hydrocarbons

Aliphatic hydrocarbons

Where carbon atoms are linked together to form a chain.

Alkanes, alkenes & alkynes


Alicylcic hydrocarbons

Alicylcic hydrocarbons

Carbon atoms are linked together to form rings.

Cycloalkanes, cycloakenes


Aromatic hydrocarbons

Aromatic hydrocarbons

Contain a ring of 6 carbon atoms.

The simplest compound is benzene C6H6


Structure of benzene

Structure of benzene


Benzene

Benzene

Carbon has 4 outer electrons.

3 of these electrons are involved in covalent bonding with the 2 adjacent carbon atoms and the 1 hydrogen.

The last electron enters a pool of delocalised electrons.


Benzene1

Benzene

Ring structure. Each corner of the hexagon represents a carbon atom with a hydrogen atom attached.

Toluene (methylbenzene) has one of these hydrogen atoms replaced by a methyl group.

CH3

C6H5CH3

Methyl benzene


World of carbon

Uses

Benzene is an important feedstock to industry.

Many consumer products are manufactured using benzene as a feedstock.


Reforming

Reforming

Straight chain hydrocarbons undergo rearrangement to form branched chain hydrocarbons, without necessarily changing the number of C.

CH3

CH3 CH2CH2CH2CH2CH2CH2CH3CH3CCH2CHCH3

CH3


Refoming

Refoming

Passing naphtha over a catalyst ( platinum or molybdenum (VI) oxide at about 500°C.

Straight chain alkanes may also be converted to aromatic hydrocarbons;


Aromatic hydrocarbons1

Aromatic hydrocarbons

The Naptha fraction is an important feedstock for the production of aromatic hydrocarbons.

Cyclohexane (present in naphtha) can undergo dehydrogenation to produce benzene.


Benzene2

Benzene

Benzene is the simplest aromatic hydrocarbon.

This process is known as reforming

C6H12C6H6 + 3H2

Benzene

Cyclohexane


Making petrol

Making petrol

Products made from reforming naptha are combined with products of cracking longer chain hydrocarbons to produce more efficient fuel.

Butane is dissolved in petrol in the winter, this is to make it more volatile.


Petrol engines

Petrol engines

In a petrol engine, air and petrol vapour are drawn into the cylinder, compressed and ignited by a high voltage electric spark.

Controlled

explosion of petrol

air mix forces piston down


Knocking

Knocking

Air-fuel mixture auto ignites or pre-ignites when the engine is hot.

It can be heard as ‘knocking’ or ‘pinking’ and is potentially damaging to the engine and inefficient.

Leaded petrol contains anti-knocking agent, lead tetra-ethyl Pb(C2H5)4 – toxic gases.

Unleaded petrol requires a much higher proportion of branched and aromatic hydrocarbons to increase the efficiency of burning.


Cfc s

CFC’s

Chlorofluorocarbons were developed for use where a non-flammable volatile liquid was required.

During the 80’s there was growing concern over the depletion of the ozone layer. CFC’s were resposible.

When UV rays met the CFC’s in the upper atmosphere the molecules would break up leaving a Cl atom.

This Cl atom then converts O3 (ozone) into O2.

e) Polymers


From previous work you should know the terms

From previous work you should know the terms:

Alkenes

Addition reaction

Polymerisation

Monomer

Polymer

Thermoplastic

Thermosetting plastic


Early plastics fibres

Early plastics & fibres

Ethene & propene are very important starting materials in the petrochemical industry. Especially production of polymers.

Where do these starting materials come come from?

How can we produce more of them?


World of carbon

Approximately 80% of ethene comes from cracking ethane


Addition polymerisation

Addition polymerisation


Condensation polymers

Condensation polymers

Made from a monomer which contains 2 functional groups per molecule.

The monomers join in chains by eliminating a molecule of water.

Examples we will learn about include polyesters, polyamides and aramids.


Polyester

Polyester…

Is synthesised by condensation of 2 monomer units.

The first has 2 hydroxyl groups, know as a dialchohol.

The second has 2 carboxylic acid groups called a dicarboxylic acid.

Hexanedioic acid


Polyester1

Polyester

2H2O

New ester links


Uses of polyesters

Uses of polyesters

If the monomers link only linearly, the polyester produced can be used for textile fibres, ropes, cords and sailcloth.

However if the monomers have additional hydroxyl (-OH) and carboxyl (-COOH) crosslinking occurs.

This creates a 3D thermoplastic used in the manufacture of bottles for soft drinks & fleece jackets.

f) Natural products


Proteins

Proteins

PROTEINS


Proteins1

Proteins

Proteins are natural products formed by many plants and all animals.

All proteins contain carbon, hydrogen oxygen & nitrogen.

Nitrogen comes from either the air, fertilisers or from the action of bacteria in nodules on some plant routes.

Proteins are condensation polymers made by linking together many amino acids.


Proteins2

Proteins

Different proteins are used for different processes in the body.

The body cannot produce all the amino acids required for body proteins.

Therefore essential amino acids must come from dietary proteins.


Digestion

Digestion

During digestion protein molecules are broken down or hydrolised to produce a mixture of amino acids. This process is catalysed by enzymes.

The amino acid can then pass through the gut wall into the bloodstream.


Amino acids

Amino acids..

As the name suggests; contain both an acid group

And an amino group (NH2)

Hydrolysis of proteins

Hydrolysis of proteins

The structural formula of the amino acid released from the protein can be identified by looking at the corresponding section of the protein chain.


World of carbon

  • In nature, hydrolysis of proteins is catalysed by enzymes.

  • In the lab, hydrolysis of proteins is catalysed by dilute acid or alkali.

Protein classification fibrous

Protein classification: Fibrous

Fibrous proteins are long and thin. They are the major structural materials for animal tissue; keratin, (hair, nails & feathers) collagen (muscles), fibroin (in silk).

Generally insoluble in water & resistant to acids & alkalis.


Protein classification globular

Protein classification: Globular

Globular proteins have spiral chains folded into compact units.

Globular proteins are involved in maintenance and regulation processes due to their solubility in water.

Examples include all enzymes, many hormones, haemoglobin and antibodies.


Enzymes

Enzymes

Enzyme function is related to the molecular shapes of proteins.

Denaturing of a protein involves physical alteration of the molecules as a result of temperature change or pH change.

The ease with which a protein is denatured is related to the susceptibility of enzymes to changes in temperature and pH.

Enzymes are most efficient within a narrow range of temperature and pH.


Enzymes1

Enzymes

Enzymes are all globular proteins. Enzymes catalyse specific reactions because of their specific active site.

Only molecules with the correct shape will fit onto the surface and it is only these molecules which will react using that particular enzyme as a catalyst.


World of carbon

When the enzyme is heated or the pH altered the shape of the molecule may change because the pattern of intermolecular bonding between chains is altered.

Chemists and biologists call this change to the enzyme denaturing since it can no longer carry out the specific reaction it was originally used for.


Fats oils

Fats & oils


Natural fats oils

Natural fats & oils

Depending on their origin can be classified as:

Vegetable

Marine

Animal


Fatty acids

Fatty acids

Can be saturated or unsaturated straight chain carboxylic acids containing even numbers of carbon atoms. (C4-C24)

Fats and oils consist largely of mixtures of triglycerides in which the 3 fatty acids attached to the glycerol may be different.


Hydrolysis of fats oils

Hydrolysis of fats & oils

Fats & oils are esters.

When fats and oils are heated with superheated steam they break up or hydrolyse to form

Gylcerol

Fatty acids

Ratio of 3 fatty acids to 1 glycerol

Scholar


Soaps

Soaps

Soaps are produced by the alkaline hydrolysis of fats and oils.

This hydrolysis is usually carried out using sodium or potassium hydroxide.

Glycerol is liberated and used as a raw material in other processes.

The fatty acids are produced in the form of their potassium or sodium salts. These salts are soap!


World of carbon

Soaps

Ionic head is soluble in water.

Hydrocarbon tail. Soluble in oils and grease.


World of carbon

  • The hydrocarbon ‘tail’ bonds to greasy material in fabrics or on the skin.

  • The ionic ‘head’ is attracted to the polar covalent water molecules.

  • An emulsion of the grease in water is then formed which can be easily washed away.


Test for unsaturation

Test for unsaturation?

How do fats & oils effect bromine water?


What s the difference

What's the difference?

Fats are solid at room temperature, oils are liquids.

The difference in melting point comes from the higher degree of unsaturation in oils.

Van der Waals

Van der Waals

Oil

Higher level of unsaturation

Fat

Low level of unsaturation


Can we change an oil into a fat

Can we change an oil into a fat?

The conversion of an oil to a fat involves removal of unsaturation by addition of hydrogen.

Nickel

Hydrogenation


Healthy diet

Healthy diet?

Fats and oils are important in a balanced diet and supply the body with energy in a more concentrated form than carbohydrates.

There is evidence of a link between a high intake of saturated fat in the diet and heart disease.

There is further evidence to suggest that unsaturated fats may help to lower cholesterol.
