    Do we need to know anything about why Cu and Cr don't follow the pattern for electron structure???

    Nope, just electronic configuration of standard elements, and how their space in the periodic table lets you know that!

    As long as you are comfortable with EVERY point on the specification you will be absolutely fine

    It acts like a sieve for isomers.
    it has holes/pores in it which allow straight chain isomers through, but traps branched chain isomers.
    and this separates the isomers

    Also worth noting that some questions simply want the answer 'Large surface area' when asking about catalysis and zeolites.

    which kind of question?
    i know when it asks what is a catalytic poison, you get one mark for saying it reduces the catalysts surface area

    I think by saying that it has a larger surface area this is one of the reasons why it speeds up a reaction. So any question about how catalysts will speed up a reaction. I think

    As well as what others have said, it is the catalyst for cracking, forming a branched alkane and alkene from a straight chai alkane

    I think it was along the line of 'what properties make a zeolite a good catalyst?' as opposed to 'what allows a zeolite to differentiate between straight and branched chains?' or somthing along those lines.

    Do you think we need to know about the squeaky pop test for hydrogen gas?

    Mg + Water = Mg(OH)2 + H2.
