Organic Chemistry
  1. Hydrocarbons are organic compounds that contain carbon and hydrogen only
    1. Saturated hydrocarbons is hydrocarbon with single bonds, an unsaturated hydrocarbon is a hydrocarbon with double bonds
      1. Aliphatic hydrocarbon is a hydrocarbon with carbon atoms joined together in a straight/ branched chain. An alicyclic hydrocarbon is a hydrocarbon with carbon atoms joined together in a ring structure
        1. Functional group is the part of the organic molecules responsible for the chemical reactions
          1. Homologous series is a series of organic compounds with the same functional group but with each successive member differing from CH2
            1. They all have the same chemical properties
            2. Alkanes are saturated straight chained hydrocarbons with single C- C bonds. For each carbon, there are four bonds and they are all tetrahedral shape with bond angles of 109.5 degrees
