Chemistry 1 – Alkanes, Alkenes and Polymers
This PowerPoint relates to the Alkanes, Alkenes and Polymers of the Chemistry 2 specification. Students learn to: (c) know how large saturated hydrocarbons (alkanes) can be cracked by heating in the presence of a catalyst to form smaller more useful hydrocarbon molecules including monomers (alkenes) for making polymers. (d) know the process of addition polymerisation of ethene to produce polythene and be able to write and interpret the following equation:
