Introduce your chemistry novices to the oxygen-containing compounds. Viewers of this presentation will learn how to identify and name alcohols, phenols, thiols, and ethers. They will also learn that combustion and dehydration are reactions of alcohols. The diagrams of molecules in these compounds are clear and the overall appearance is bold and bright. Together these qualities make the PowerPoint both educational and pleasing to the eye.
These words are tough! Very advanced English language learners or native speakers will still be befuddled by some of these vocabulary words. For each of the six sentences provided, learners must choose the correct word to complete the sentence. Example words include quiescent, limpid, ethereal, and propitiations.
Beyond using ethers as the example of an aprotic solvent (as in most of the previous videos), Sal describes the molecule diethylether with its IUPAC name and goes into more detail about its properties. This video does assume your class will know the definition of ethers. Sal does not talk about the reasoning behind its category.
Twelve pages of text tells viewers about the physical properties and naming procedures for alcohols and ethers. A page is also dedicated to briefly describing phenols. This straightforward chemistry presentation comes to you as a PDF file. Use it as a note-taking guide for your charges when lecturing on these compounds.
Every heard of Letheon? According to Wikipedia, Letheon was the name William T.G.Morton gave to ether so that he could patent the substance. Morton’s attempts are the subject of the passage used in this comprehension quiz. To correctly answer the four prompts, readers must engage in close reading and access the provided links to resource materials.
