Presented by Janet Penevolpe and Paige Prescott

This is a brief introduction to naming hydrocarbons, identification of several compounds relevant to the formation of biomolecules, and general organic chemistry. Functional groups of these hydrocarbons (and their characteristics) are also explained, which explains how the molecules interact with each other. The presentation is complete with several examples and also includes methods for teaching organics in the classroom.
