Fats and Oils As Higher Esters

Sources, properties and uses detergents and soaps Structure, their mode and action. Fats and oils belong to a general group of compounds known as lipids. SOURCES Fats are solids that usually come from animals e.g. Tallow (mutton fat).  Oils are liquids that come from plants e.g. vegetable oil, coconut oil etc.  Both fat and oil […]

ALKANOIC ACIDS

ALKANOATES General molecular formula, nomenclature,  preparation,  properties and uses.   SOURCES The alkanoic acid or carboxylic acids are also called fatty acids because some of them are found in natural fats and oils.  They contain the functional group called carboxy group.   NOMENCLATURE The IUPAC name of each homologue is obtained by changing the “-e”

ALKANOLS

SOURCES OF ALKANOLS –           From destructive distillation wood. –           From starchy food and sugar   General molecular formular Alkanol is a homologous series with general molecular formular of Cn H2n+1OH or ROH. Or (CnH2n+2O).   Nomenclature The names of alkanols are obtained by substituting “e” in alkanes with “Ol” in alkanol e.g. methanol (CH3OH), ethanol

ALKYNES

Alkynes are the  homologous series of unsaturated hydrocarbon  with a general molecular formua CnH2n-2. Alkynes show a high degree of unsaturation than alkenes, hence,t hey are chemically more reactive than the corresponding alkenes or alkanes. Examples are : H H – C = C – H                           HC  – C =  C- H [ Ethyne.

The Halogens – Group 7

THE HALOGENS – GROUP 7 The halogens are all in group 7 on the right of the periodic table. This group consists of elements like Fluorine (F), Chlorine (Cl), Bromine (Br), Iodine (I), Astatine (At). The Halogens are typical non-metals and form the 7th Group in the Periodic Table ‘Halogens’ means ‘salt formers’ and the
