Outcome: Functional Groups

Categorize molecules according to their functional group.

In this outcome, we’ll learn about functional groups and the effects they have on the molecules they are bonded to.

What You’ll Learn to Do

  • Identify the attributes of molecules with hydroxyl groups.
  • Identify the attributes of molecules with carboxyl groups.
  • Identify the attributes of molecules with amino groups.
  • Identify the attributes of molecules with phosphate groups.
  • Identify the attributes of molecules with methyl groups.
  • Identify the attributes of molecules with carbonyl groups.
  • Identify the attributes of molecules with sulfhydryl groups.
