Molecules containing carbon atoms
A chemical formula that indicates the type of atoms and the correct number of each in a molecule
Shows which atoms are connected to which in a molecule. Atoms are represented by their chemical symbols and lines are used to represent all the bonds that hold the atoms together.
Condensed structural formula
Shows the way in which atoms are bonded together in a molecule, but does not show all the bonds
Organic compounds that consist of only hydrogen and carbon only
Series of organic compounds that can be described by the same general formula or in which one member differs from the next by a CH2 group.
Compounds in which there are no multiple bonds between C atoms in their hydrocarbons chains.
Compounds with one or more multiple bonds between C atoms in their hydrocarbon chains
A bond or an atom or a group of atoms that determines the physical and chemical properties of a group of organic compounds.
organic compounds with the same molecular formulae, but different structural formulae.
Same molecular formula but different types of chains
Same molecular formulae , but different position of the side chain, substituents or functional groups on the parent chain
A molecule that consists of a large number of atoms
A large molecule composed of smaller monomer units covalently bonded to each other in a repeating pattern
Small organic molecules that can be covalently bonded to one another in a repeating pattern
a chemical reaction in which monomer molecules join to form a polymer
A reaction in which small molecules join to form very large molecules by adding on double bonds
A polymer formed when monomers (usually containing a double bond) combine through an addition reaction
Molecules of two monomers with different functional groups undergo condensation reactions with the loss of small molecules, usually water
