Study Guide for Hour Test 1
Draw Lewis structures of simple molecules, including resonance structures.
Determine the hybridization of the sigma bonds, and the geometry about an atom from its Lewis structure.
Distinguish between primary, secondary, and tertiary carbon atoms.
Draw structures from names of alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, and aromatic compounds, including special names such as aniline, phenol, toluene, styrene, etc.
Name compounds in these classes from their structures.
Be able to name and draw the common alkyl radicals (Table 19.3).
Identify functional groups in a compound (Table 19.1, and including the "aromatic" functional group).
Given a compound, determine its structural and geometric isomers.
Understand the mechanism and unstable intermediates in the addition of HCl, HBr, and HOH to alkenes and alkynes.
Understand the mechanism and unstable intermediate in the electrophilic substitution reactions of aromatic compounds.
Be able to draw the products of reaction of alkenes and alkynes with halogens, KMnO4, HCl, HBr, and HOH, including deciding which is the major product if there are two possibilities.
Draw the product of reaction of alkyl benzene with KMnO4.
