Introduction To Organic Chemistry



This website has been designed to assist students to better able to understand the reaction of alkanes and alkenes. After going through this website you will learn to appreciate the difference in their reactions. The reactions of alkanes and alkenes are important for everyday life, and the type of reaction they undergo is detemined by its functional group.

The product of their reactions can be use in the synthesis of polymers, such as polyvinylpipes. Also they can be used to make candle and gasoline. Therefore it is important that we understand the way in which these organic compounds react.
