Lesson Plan: Alkynes Chemistry

This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to name and describe the reactions of alkynes.


Students will be able to

  • describe the homologous series of alkynes,
  • name different alkyne molecules and explain their physical properties,
  • describe the preparation of alkynes in the laboratory and on an industrial scale,
  • explain common addition reactions of alkynes.


Students should already be familiar with

  • sigma and pi bonding in organic molecules,
  • polar bonds and polar molecules.
