CHEM1102 - Resources - Resources for Week 7


Topics and Learning Outcomes

  • Carboxylic Acids and Derivatives
    •  identify and name simple carboxylic acids
    •  give the products from the reaction of a carboxylic acid with a base and recognize that this is a reversible reaction
    •  predict the product of the reduction of a carboxylic acid and give the reagents required to perform this reaction
    •  identify carboxylic acid derivatives as esters, amides, acid halides and acid anhydrides
    •  give the products obtained upon hydrolysis of these carboxylic acid derivatives
    •  recognize that acid halides are more reactive than esters which are, in turn, more reactive than amides
    •  predict the products that will be formed when a carboxylic acid derivative is treated with an alcohol or amine
    •  give the reagents required for the interconversion of carboxylic acid derivatives
    •  recognize a polymer and identify the repeating unit present
  • Synthetic Strategies
    •  use the reactions of these functional groups to interconvert them and devise ways of making new compounds
