Functional Groups

Postby Andrea ORiordan 1L » Mon Mar 12, 2018 3:10 pm

Hello,

What will we be expected to know for the final with regard to functional groups? Should we be able to identify them in a complex molecule? Or should we just be able to name and draw them?

Thanks.

According to chem_mod on another post about functional groups on the final we should be able to identify the functional groups given the structure like we did in lecture today.

If you are able to draw the Lewis structure of molecules and know what to look for within the structure to determine the functional group, you should be set.

So functional groups are on the final?

Yes, functional groups will be on the final. We'll most likely have to name the functional group based on a given molecular formula or structure.
