Functional groups we have to know

Postby Natalie Yakobian » Sat Mar 05, 2016 8:41 pm

Hi I was wondering in the organic textbook there are more functional groups than we went over in class. Will we be responsible for knowing those as well?

Thanks!

I think you should know the functional groups presented in Chapter 2 Section 1,2,4,5,6, and 10 as those are the sections assigned in the syllabus. They can all be fair game.

We would only need to know alcohols, ketones, ethers, amines, carboxylic acids, and aldehydes!

For naming, What are the priorities within these functional groups?

Carboxylic acids>esters>aldehydes>ketone>alcohol>amines. However, you do not need to know this.
