Learning Outcomes for Chapter 8

To master the material in this chapter, a student needs to know...

  1. what we mean by the term straight-chain alkane (8.1)
  2. what an organic isomer is and how to identify one (8.1)
  3. the formulas and names of the first ten alkanes (8.1)
  4. how to name simple organic compounds (8.2)
  5. how to identify functional groups on an organic structure and classify the type of organic compound (8.3)
  6. the differences in primary (1°), secondary (2°), and tertiary (3°) alcohols and amines (8.4)
  7. the difference in homolytic and heterolytic cleavage and how we show it (8.4)
  8. the 4 fundamental organic reaction types of and how to distinguish between them (8.5)
  9. the main monomer name, the structure (repeat unit), and the key features and properties of the big 6 plastics (8.6)
  10. the key structural differences that lead to the different properties of LDPE and HDPE (8.7)
  11. the difference in an addition reaction and a condensation reaction to build polymers (8.9-8.10)
  12. which polymers are based on monomers (addition polymers) and copolymers (condensation polymers) (8.6-8.10)
  13. the names and key monomer/copolymer units for our "other" polymers (8.8)
  14. the names, repeat units, and key properties for the set of nature's polymers that we covered (8.11)
  15. the names and structures of the links that connect the monomer units of all the polymers we covered
