AS3.5 Organic Chemistry (External)
This externally assessed standard is worth 5 credits and is essential for
your future understanding at a tertiary level.
You will cover a large amount of content and the teaching  component will take
approximately 10 weeks of class time.

The following is a comprehensive list of all the key areas that you must cover for AS3.5. This topic will introduce a lot of new terminology and concepts, so listen well and ask plenty of questions.

what you need to know!

Organic compounds are limited to those containing one or more of the following functional groups: alkene, haloalkane, amine, alcohol, aldehyde, ketone, carboxylic acid, ester (including triglycerides), acyl chloride, and amide.

Structure includes functional groups and isomerism (constitutional isomers and stereoisomers).

Reactivity of organic compounds is limited to:
  • substitution reactions using the following reagents: concentrated HCl, HBr, SOCl2, NaOH, KOH (in alcohol or aqueous solution), concentrated NH3, primary amines, primary alcohols/H+, H2O/H+, H2O/OH– (Substitution reactions include esterification, condensation, hydrolysis, and polymerisation.)
  • oxidation reactions using the following reagents: MnO4–/H+, Cr2O72–/H+, Tollens’, Fehling’s and Benedict’s.  Reduction of aldehydes and ketones with NaBH4
  • elimination reactions using the following reagents: KOH in alcohol and concentrated H2SO4 (includes major and minor products from asymmetric alcohols and haloalkanes)
  • polymerisation reactions involving formation of polyesters and polyamides including proteins
  • addition reactions of alkenes (used for the identification of the products of elimination reactions). 
Physical properties of organic compounds may be used to distinguish between organic compounds and are limited to:
  • solubility
  • melting point and boiling point
  • rotation of plane-polarised light.
