organic reactions

  1. Substitution
    when an atom or group of atoms in a molecule are replaced with another atom or group of atoms
  2. Type one substitution
    halogenation
  3. What are free radicals
    unpaired electrons
  4. Initiation
    UV light breaks down a chlorine molecule (cl2) by homolytic fission
  5. Chain reaction
    a reaction that continues on because a product from one step is the reactant for another step
  6. Termination
    a combination that can cause the end of a reaction
  7. Evidence for substitution
    Only happens in UV light (free radicals)

    ethene found in products ( only formed from the combination of two free radicals)

    Inhibitor like o2 slows down reaction (inhibitor can only stop chain reactions)
  8. Type 2 reaction
    esterification alcohol and carboxylic acid react
  9. Type 3 reaction
    one in which two or more molecules react to form a single molecule
  10. Elimination
    a small molecule is removed from a larger molecule to leave a double bond in the larger molecule
  11. Reversal equals
    reduction
