Organic Chemistry Qualitative Analysis Mind Map

Organic Chemistry Qualitative Analysis Mind Map

The qualitative analysis of organic functional groups can be daunting for a lot of students because of the sheer number of observations and reagents they are required to memorize. The Organic Qualitative Analysis (OQA) is a MIND MAP tool that summarizes all reagents (2,4-DNPH, Tollens', Fehling's, etc) used to determine the following functional groups: Alcohol Aldehyde Ketone Methyl ketone Methyl alcohol OQA is designed not only to help students to memorize the reagents and observations, but also to aid them avoiding common pitfalls e.g. reaction of 2,4-DNPH and ester will not happen, but many students make the mistake of thinking it will happen. OQA gives a clear and succinct picture of the qualitative analysis tests and how they are related. OQA is also a great tool for self-revision for the students and for the teachers to wrap up the organic component of the syllabus OQA contains: 1) A completed MIND MAP - teachers can use this as a reference to plan their class. 2) Blank MIND MAP - students can print this and update it accordingly as they learn the qualitative analysis tests. It can also be used in class activity. Teachers can also use this as an assessment to test students’ understanding of the reaction. Recommended page size: A3
