AQA A-level Chemistry 3.3.10 Amines, naming and reactions - Full Unit Workbook with Answers

(0)
AQA A-level chemistry unit 3.1.10 Amines - Lesson or Revision workbook and notes with answers This workbook covers a whole unit of work combining detailed information sections with Cornell Style note taking so the books can be used while you teach and students can add their own notes and ideas down the margin. I have used colour consistently for the different types of sections to make the booklet more dyslexia friendly as I have found that chemistry notes and questions can often be very dense, and somewhat inaccessible for students who have dyslexia. The workbook can also be produced as a revision guide for the topic and contains all the notes and practice past paper questions you would need to revise along with worked examples. Parent and student friendly. This booklet is 20 pages long with answers to past paper questions provided at the back from page 16 onwards. It is provided in word and pdf. Contents Amine functional group Naming amines with alkyl chains and naming priorities in organic chemistry Preparation of amines by the reaction of ammonia with halogenoalkanes Preparation of aliphatic amines by reduction of nitriles Preparation of aromatic amines by reduction of nitro compounds Basic properties Reactions with acyl compounds and acid anhydrides
