INDEX of all revision notes on the chemistry of alcohols

(plus a few notes on ethers which are isomeric with alcohols)

4.1 Molecular Structure and Nomenclature of ALCOHOLS (and some ethers)

(Also includes an introduction as to how to write and display alcohol and ether formulae including isomers)

Multiple choice quiz on naming alcohols and ethers

Type in name (short answer) quiz on alcohols and ethers

To doc b! Do mixed naming quiz 3rd, and 4th version by adding other structure/reaction Qs from a 3rd data base?

4.2 The laboratory synthesis and industrial manufacture of alcohols

4.3 Physical properties (boiling points, solubility) and intermolecular forces (including isomeric ethers)

4.4 Combustion of alcohols, enthalpies of combustion and use as fuels (plus a note on isomeric ethers)

4.5 Controlled oxidation of alcohols with selected oxidising agents

4.6A Important reactions with: metallic sodium, acid chlorides and carboxylic acids to give esters

4.6B Dehydration of alcohols to yield alkenes

4.7 Halogenation with hydrogen halides: Conversion of alcohols to halogenoalkanes

4.8 Chemical tests for alcohols

4.9 Examples of uses of alcohols and occurrence in biological molecules - biochemistry

See also Part 15 Organic Chemistry Spectroscopy - examples of IR, mass, H-1 NMR and C-13 NMR spectra


Alcohol reaction mechanisms

The following notes have basic reaction conditions, reagents and general equations as well as detailed notes on the mechanisms indicated (overlap because they were written before above sections 4.2 to 4.8 were compiled)

Conversion of an alcohol to a halogenoalkane mechanism

Elimination of water from an alcohol to give an alkene [acid catalysed, E1 and E2 mechanisms]

Esterification of acid chlorides with alcohols to give an ester mechanism
