This FINAL chemistry music video describes the organic reactions you need to know for the New York State Regents exam. Want more detail? Take a college O. Chem course. After four years, I'm DONE making chemistry songs! :)
Organic-type reactions are really very slow Covalent bonds are difficult to break, hey, don't you know You've got to be quite patient for your products to finally form And make sure that your reaction doesn't get too warm Or else it might combust, in other words might burn To see my reaction up in smoke can make my stomach churn
Organic reactions, organic reactions Covalent bonds are breaking, rearranging, new bonds making Organic reactions, organic reactions Sometimes fast and sometimes slow, which one it is I sure don't know
Hydrocarbons unsaturated have got a double bond Adding diatomic chlorine is like waving a wand The double bond will break and the chlorines they will ADD If there is no double bond, then substitution's what you have A chlorine replaces hydrogen, usually at the end But you can get some isomers on which the name depends
Organic reactions, organic reactions Substitution and addition can fill product's prescription Organic reactions, organic reactions Substitution and addition, halogenation is the mission
Combustion is when compounds burn up when there's oxygen To produce carbon dioxide and water vapor then Fermentation is when yeast eats sugar, digests it and then pees Out ethanol and CO2, does it anaerobically Saponification's making soap from a fat and a strong base Glycerol is also made, now go and wash your face!
Organic reactions, organic reactions Combustion sets the world on fire, fermentation makes it drunk Organic reactions, organic reactions Saponification makes soap from fat, I never woulda thunk
Esterification makes an ester out of acid and alcohol H and OH are removed, making water after all Etherification makes ether by dehydrating two alcohols Dehydration synthesis is what both reactions there are called Polymers are molecules in chains, making plastics and rubber balls Polymerization reactions are what can make them all!
Organic reactions, organic reactions Dehydration synthesis makes ethers and esters without a mess Organic reactions, organic reactions Polymers are made in chains, now go forth and use your brains!
