Lesson Flashcards: Alkynes Chemistry

Hydrobromination

A type of addition reaction involving the combination of an alkyne with hydrogen bromide to make a dibromoalkane

Markovnikov’s rule

In the major product, acidic hydrogen is added to the carbon with the greatest number of hydrogen substituents

Homologous series

A family of compounds that have the same functional group, similar chemical properties, and the same general formula

Addition reaction

A type of reaction that happens when two or more reactant molecules combine together to make a single product

Hydration

A type of addition reaction involving the combination of an alkyne with water to make an aldehyde or a ketone

Alkyne

An unsaturated hydrocarbon that contains at least one carbon–carbon triple bond

Hydrogenation

A type of addition reaction involving the combination of an alkyne with hydrogen to make a saturated hydrocarbon product

Functional group

A part of a molecule made of particular atoms or ions in a particular bonding arrangement
