We will focus on organic chemistry - ­no,not the study of organic foods, but the study of carbon-containing molecules. We will expand upon knowledge of organic chemistry from Level 2 to include functional groups such as aldehydes, ketones, esters, amides, and acyl chlorides. We will try for ourselves the many chemical reactions that can be done with these organic compounds to make useful things, such as polymers! This term will be “alkynes” of fun, so hopefully no one will be “diene” of boredom.
