Lab-Aids: Organic Chemistry - Modeling Hydrocarbons Kit


Lab-Aids: Organic Chemistry - Modeling Hydrocarbons Kit

This Lab-Aid allows students to construct the homologous series of hydrocarbons such as alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, and benzene. It also includes nonbonding valences. Students construct a composite of all linkages, regardless of compatibility, in their determination of molecular properties. 12 complete sets of molecular model components are provided.

Scientific Concepts:

  • Construct homologous series of hydrocarbons
  • Understand how certain elements can combine to form organic compounds
  • Demonstrate single and double bonding between atoms

Content List:

  • 1 Teacher's Guide
  • 36 Student Worksheets and Guides
  • 15 Packages containing: 6 Carbon plastic tetrahedral centers (black), 4 Oxygen plastic double-bonded atoms (blue), 10 Hydrogen plastic atoms (white), 13 Covalent plastic bonds

Classroom Planning:
  • To complete this kit requires two ~50-minute class periods
  • Number of students: 36
