Why Lesson Planet?
Nine action-packed organic chemistry exercises are contained in this mini-unit on carbon containing compounds. Examples include constructing models of alkanes, producing aromatic esters, and preparing pigments for paint and dyes. Chemistry scholars learn to write molecular formulas and draw structures for carbon compounds. Because of the complexity of the activities and level of skills required, this would not be recommended for first-year chemistry classes. It is, however, a superior resource!
