Organic Chemistry on Hydrocarbons: Alkane, Alkene, Arene

Requirements

  • basic chemistry (O Level Chemistry).
  • introduction to organic chemistry (basics of naming of organic compounds by IUPAC convention).
  • isomerism (constitutional and steoreoisomerism).

This course is for parents who want to learn A Level organic chemistry with their child. In this course we focus on these topics: Hydrocarbons (alkanes, alkenes and arenes )

 

This course is written based on the Singapore A Level Chemistry syllabus (9729).

 

In this course, we will cover:

Alkanes

– physical properties of alkanes

– preparation of alkanes

– reaction of alkanes

– free radical substitution reaction

– Going through example questions to reinforce what you have learnt

 

Alkenes

– physical properties of alkenes

– preparation of alkenes

– reaction of alkenes

– electrophilic addition mechanism

– Applying Markonikov’s rule to find major product

– Applying Saytzeff’s rule to find major product

– Going through example questions to reinforce what you have learnt

 

Arenes

– physical properties of arenes

– what makes benzene stable

– preparation of benzene

– reaction of benzene

– electrophilic substitution reaction of benzene

– 3-, 5- drecting vs 2-, 4-, direction

– effect of substituents on electrophilic substitution reaction of benzene

– Going through example questions to reinforce what you have learnt

 

Each lesson comes with notes that follow the video closely.

 

In this course on hydrocarbons, schools generally take many lessons to complete. But now, you can watch with your child and help with build up their organic Chemistry foundation on Hydrocarbons (alkanes, alkenes and arenes  or benzene), anytime, anywhere, at your own pace, and watch it any number of times you like. This course teaches you both the concepts tested in A-Level, as well as how to apply the concepts to questions.
