Reaction types and mechanisms -Chemistry A level

Teacher and Student PP that reviews the reaction types and mechanisms of reactions studied over the two years of A Level Chemistry. The resource reviews such key terms as: electrophile, nucleophile, free radical, homolytic bond fission, heterophilic bond fission, carbocation. The following mechanisms are described and explained: free radical substitution, nucleophilic substitution, electrophilic substitution, electrophilic addition, nucleophilic addition, nucleophilic addition-elimination and elimination (haloalkanes with ethanoic hydroxide).
The exam questions included give students extensive opportunities to apply their knowledge and assess their progress. Some of the questions contain Stretch and challenge element.
Teacher PP contains all the activities from the Student PP and contains answers to all activities and exam questions from the Student PP.
The resource can be used as a revision aid to prepare for the final exam but can be also used in lessons, over 2Years when students are learning the different mechanisms of reactions.
The resource was prepared with the use of A Level Chemistry for OCR A textbook. Many images /diagrams that appear on PP are from this book.
