PROPERTIES OF ORGANIC COMPOUNDS MENU

 

You can find details of the physical and chemical properties for each of these types of compound:


Aliphatic compounds

These are compounds where the functional group is not attached directly to a benzene ring.

alkanes . . .

alkenes . . .

halogenoalkanes (haloalkanes or alkyl halides) . . .

alcohols . . .

aldehydes and ketones . . .

carboxylic acids . . .

acyl chlorides (acid chlorides) . . .

acid anhydrides . . .

esters . . .

amides . . .

nitriles . . .

amines . . .

amino acids and other biochemistry . . .


Aromatic compounds

These are compounds based on benzene rings. This isn't a complete list, but shows only those compounds where there are important differences between them and their aliphatic equivalents.

arenes (benzene and methylbenzene) . . .

aryl halides (e.g. chlorobenzene) . . .

phenol . . .

phenylamine (aniline) and diazonium compounds . . .
