Chemical Compounds

Honors Chemistry

3 types of formulas
3 Types of Formulas
  • Empirical: Smallest whole-number-ratio of atoms or ions in a compound
    • Ex. CH2 NH3
  • Molecular: Tells you the actual number of atoms of an element in a compound
    • Ex. C2H4 N2H6
  • Structural: Indicates how the atoms are bonded to each other
how does the mole relate to compounds
How does the mole relate to compounds?


Atoms are too small to count or mass individually.

It is easier to count many or mass many.

amu gram

(atomic scale) (macroscopic scale)


atoms, ions, molecules, or formula units

Molar Mass= mass, in grams, per 1 mole of a substance units = grams/mole (g/mol)

  • Example: the molar mass of H2O is

18.0 g/mol

molecular formulas and molar masses are used to determine percent composition
Molecular formulas and molar masses are used to determine Percent Composition
  • Definition: percentage, by mass, of each element

in a compound

% Composition = (part/whole) x 100

  • Problems
    • Calculate the % composition of NaCl

% Na:

% Cl:

39.3% Na

60.7% Cl

percent composition of hydrate definition a hydrate is an ionic compound with water embedded in it
Percent Composition of HydrateDefinition: A hydrate is an ionic compound with water embedded in it.
  • Calculate the % water in a hydrate, Mg3(PO4)2. 6H2O.

molar mass of hydrate =

molar mass of anhydrate + x(molar mass of water)

% water =

370.9 g/mol Mg3(PO4)2 . 6H2O

29.1% H2O

organic compounds1
Organic Compounds

Allotropes of carbon

Allotropes: Different forms of an element in same physical state

Catenation: ability of an element to form chains and/or rings of covalently bonded atoms

structural formula
Structural Formula
  • Indicates the number and types of atoms present in a molecule and also shows the bonding arrangement of the atoms
  • One possible isomer of C4H10
  • Does not show 3D shape
naming organic compounds
Naming Organic Compounds
  • Alkanes – saturated organic compound
    • Contains only single bonds
    • General Formula: CnH2n+2
  • Alkenes – unsaturated organic compound
    • Contains at least one double bond
    • General Formula: CnH2n
  • Alkynes – unsaturated organic compound
    • Contains at least one triple bond
    • General Formula: CnH2n-2
  • What type of organic compound is C4H10 ?
naming hydrocarbons
Naming Hydrocarbons
  • Find the longest chain of carbon atoms. Choose the base name that describes the number of carbon atoms in this chain. Use the following endings:

Alkane (ane), Alkene (ene), Alkyne (yne)

naming hydrocarbons1
Naming hydrocarbons
  • Number the carbon atoms in this longest chain beginning at the end nearest the 1st branching.
    • If there is branching at equal distances from both ends of the longest chain, begin numbering at the end nearest the branch that is 1st in alphabetical order.





naming alkenes and alkynes
Naming Alkenes and Alkynes
  • Number the carbon atoms in the chain sequentially, beginning at the end nearer the double or triple bond. If the parent chain has more than 3 carbons, insert the number describing the position of the double or triple bond (indicated by its 1st carbon location) before the base name.



branches substituents on the main chain
Branches/Substituents on the Main Chain
  • Additional Hydrocarbon branches

The hydrocarbon branches are called alkyl groups:

-CH3 methyl -CH2CH2CH3 propyl

-CH2CH3 ethyl -CH2CH2CH2CH3 butyl

2)The organic halides are elements from group 17 in the periodic table.

The prefix can be fluoro-, chloro-, bromo- or iodo-.

hydrocarbon branches or substituents
Hydrocarbon Branches or Substituents

Assign the name (stem with yl ending) & position number to each substituent or branch. Arrange substituentsin alphabetical order.

The hydrocarbon branches are called alkyl groups:

-CH3 methyl -CH2CH2CH3 propyl

-CH2CH3 ethyl -CH2CH2CH2CH3 butyl

naming hydrocarbons2
Naming hydrocarbons
  • Use the appropriate prefix to group like substituents: di = 2, tri = 3, tetra = 4, etc. Do not use these prefixes when alphabetizing attached groups
  • Write the name as a single word. Use hyphens to separate numbers & letters and commas to separate numbers. Do not leave any spaces.
naming alkenes and alkynes1
Naming Alkenes and Alkynes

In naming alkenes and alkynes, the mulitple bond takes positional precedence over substituents on the carbon chain. The double bond is assigned the lowest possible number.



naming organic halides alkyl halides
Naming Organic Halides (Alkyl Halides)
  • The organic halides are named as halo- derivatives of the parent hydrocarbon. The prefix can be fluoro-, chloro-, bromo- or iodo-.



alkene examples
Alkene Examples



naming alkynes
Naming Alkynes
  • Named just like the alkenes except the suffix –yne is added





alkyne examples
Alkyne Examples



arrangement of atoms
Arrangement of Atoms
  • Isomers – compounds that have the same molecular formula but different structures
  • More C atoms in formula, more isomers
    • 18 isomers for C8H18
    • 35 isomers for C9H20
    • 75 isomers for C10H22

Isomers of C6H14

structural isomers
Structural Isomers
  • Isomers in which the atoms are bonded together in different orders.
  • C4H10 (note continuous chain of C atoms)


Ex #1) Butane, C4H10

Ex #2) Butene, C4H8

Ex #3) 2-Butene, C4H8

Ex #4) methyl propene, C4H8


Functional Groupsan atom or group of atoms that is responsible for the specific properties of an organic compound
diffusion and effusion
Diffusion and Effusion

Diffusion: the mixing of molecules of 2 or more gases due to their molecular motion (spontaneous)

Effusion is the movement of gas atoms or molecules through a small opening. Gases confined in a container randomly pass through a tiny opening in the container.

ex) hole in a tire; soda bottle (CO2 escaping)

Graham’s Law: The rate of effusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of its molar mass.
