Products of Reactions Involving Hydrocarbons

 

This is part of the HSC Chemistry course under the topic Products of Reactions Involving Hydrocarbons.

HSC Chemistry Syllabus

  • ● investigate, write equations and construct models to represent the reactions of unsaturated hydrocarbons when added to a range of chemicals, including but not limited to:

  • – hydrogen (H2)

  • – halogens (X2)

  • – hydrogen halides (HX)

  • – water (H2O) (ACSCH136)

 

  • investigate, write equations and construct models to represent the reactions of saturated hydrocarbons when substituted with halogens

     

    Addition Reactions Involving Alkenes

    Alkenes are unsaturated hydrocarbons that are chemically reactive. This video explores various addition reactions possible with alkene molecules. The video also explains the production of major and minor products (Markovnikov's Rule). 

     

     

    Addition Reactions Involving Alkynes

    Like alkenes, alkynes are unsaturated hydrocarbons. So what products do addition reactions with alkynes produce? Find out in this video.

     

    Reactions Involving Alkanes

    This video explores reactions of alkanes. While alkanes are not as reactive as alkenes and alkynes, they are still involved in various chemical reactions, including substitution, cracking and combustion.
