Structure and Properties of Alcohols


This is part of the HSC Chemistry course under the topic Alcohols.

HSC Chemistry Syllabus

  • investigate the structural formulae, properties and functional group including: – primary – secondary – tertiary alcohols

  • explain the properties within and between the homologous series of alcohols with reference to the intermolecular and intramolecular bonding present – boiling and melting point – solubility in water – molar enthalpy of combustion

Alcohols: Structure, Nomenclature, Boiling Point and Solubility

This video introduces students to the organic functional group – alcohols. Alcohols have different structure, nomenclature and physical properties, such as melting and boiling point and aqueous solubility, when compared to hydrocarbons.
