    Hi Everyone,

    Thought I'd create a thread for everyone to discuss about the chemistry exam this week.

    Any predictions, revision tips and help can be posted here!

    Good luck everyone!!

    Anyone got any good notes on bonding? Any tips on how to easily identify which kind of forces are acting upon certain elements

    It's just non-metal-non-metal bond = Covalent
    Metal-non-metal = Ionic
    Metal-metal = Metallic

    Hydrogen bonds between H + (N,F,O) - Strongest IMF.
    Permanent dipole - I think it's C-Cl bonds and stuff...
    VDW - Weakest IMF.
    Hmm.

    so I came across this question in Jan12 paper and I got a completely different answer from the markscheme on what the name of it is...
    the markscheme says it's called 2,2 dichloro 3 methyl pentane....i don't understand why, anyone wanna help me?

    Longest carbon chain is 5 so PENT
    No C=C so ANE
    2Chlorines on Carbon2 So 2,2 Dichloro
    1 Methyl group on Carbon 3 so 3 Methyl
    Add them together in alphabetical order 2,2-Dichloro-3-MethylPentane

    It's pent- because the longest chain is five carbons (it's not straight it's goes 'round the corner' the CH3 group on the bottom right is carbon number 1 if you get me). The chlorines are both on the second carbon and then there is a methyl group on the third carbon.
    That's actually quite complicated when you look at it, I definitely wouldn't have got that answer :L

    ooh thanks guys, i'm so silly, i didn't realise that there were 5 carbons -_-
    thanks again

    this sounds really stupid but how do you know which carbon you would say is carbon 1, etc?

    Take this for example
    You would deduce which way you look at it gives you the smallest number on the carbon chain, from left to right it would be 4,4-DiChloro-3-MethylPentane. You then would look at it from the other way (right to left) and it would be 2,2-DiChloro-3-MethylPentane.
    As you can see the position of the functional groups on the 2nd Haloalkane is lower than the 1st Haloalkane so that would be it.
    Hope this makes sense.
