Alkenes, Benzene and Alkynes
Molecules which contain double and triple bonds have very different properties from those containing only single bonds.

This module explores the nature of double and triple bonds, and the unusual case of benzene, a molecule with an unusual structure which cannot be adequately described with just the concepts of single and double bonds.
