    Quick question: How do you know whether an alcohol is primary or secondary just by knowing the name of the alcohol? e.g ethanol is a primary alcohol but how do we know that? :confused:

    They should number the OH group, ie Propan-2-ol the OH group is on carbon 2, so it is secondary, propan-1-ol is primary, however ethanol will always form a primary alcahol as it will always be at the end of the chain.

    So any alcohol which has its OH group attached to the first carbon atom is a primary alcohol?

    Well it an actual question about them, but they have asked questions about how to reduce greenhouse emissions where one of the mark scheme answers are protocols such as the Montreal and Kyoto protocol has been developed which allow countries to work together in order to reduce greenhouse emissions.

    Yup, and if the OH is in the middle it is secondary, and if the OH is bound to a carbon which is bound to two more carbons it is tertiary, the best way is to quckly draw it out by the side of the question then cross it out afterwards so it doesnt get marked

    Does anyone know this for sure?
    At the start of the paper it says "use black ink only, pencil can be used for graphs and diagrams"
    When drawing displayed structures and mechanisms, I have to draw them with pencil first in case I make a mistake and use up all the space, do these count as diagrams? I don't really want to waste time going over it all with pen.. never know what 30 more seconds can do for you in an exam hahah. Anyone know if I can just leave them as pencil drawings?

    quite a lot of organic structure drawing questions come up in the paper so I think it's best to do them in pen, but I doubt they would just not mark it if it was done in pencil. just doubting how clear pencil would come up on the screen after its scanned.

    They say on the front of the paper, that pencil can be used in diagrams or drawings
