Organic chemistry: It’s alkynes of fun!
We will focus on organic chemistry - no, not the study of organic foods,
but the study of carbon-containing molecules. We will learn about different functional groups that make organic molecules unique, such as alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alcohols, alkyl halides, amines and carboxylic acids. We will try for ourselves the many chemical reactions that can be done with these organic compounds to make useful things, such as pharmaceutical drugs and polymers! This term will be “alkynes” of fun, so hopefully no one will be “diene” of boredom.
