What functional group does an alcohol contain?

An hydroxyl (-OH) functional group.

2

What is a primary alcohol?

A primary alcohol has only one carbon atom attached to the carbon atom that the hydroxyl functional group (-OH) is attached to.

3

What is a secondary alcohol?

A secondary alcohol has two carbon atoms attached to the carbon atom that the hydroxyl functional group (-OH) is attached to.

4

What is a tertiary alcohol?

A tertiary alcohol has three carbon atoms attached to the carbon atom that hydroxyl the functional group (-OH) is attached to.

5

What function group does a haloalkane contain?

A halide group (any halogen atom such as bromine and chlorine bonded to the alkane chain).

6

What can Haloalkanes be classified as?

Primary, Secondary and Tertiary.

7

Define primary haloalkane

Haloalkanes can be classified as primary when the carbon bonded to the halogen atom is bonded to one other carbon atom.

8

Define Secondary haloalkane

Haloalkanes can be classified as secondary when the carbon bonded to the halogen atom is bonded to two carbon atoms.

9

Define tertiary haloalkane

Haloalkanes can be classified as tertiary when the carbon bonded to the halogen atom is bonded to three carbon atoms.
