Introduction to Carbon Chemistry. D13 and D16. D13 - Explain how the structure of carbon affects the types of bonds it forms in organic and inorganic molecules D16 - Explain how simple chemical monomers can be combined to create linear, branched and/or cross-linked polymers.
What are compounds?
What are covalent bonds?
Carbon can form
Methane CH4 Pentane C5H12 Nonane C9H20
Ethane C2H6Hexane C6H14 Decane C10H22
Propane C3H8Heptane C7H16
Butane C4H10Octane C8H18
in their name
CH3OH is methane with the hydroxyl functional group.
This is called methanol
How many Cs and Hs are contained in each of these compounds?
One is linear and one is branched.
