About the Course

In this short course, Dr Shane Lo Fan Hin (University of Sussex) introduces alkenes: organic compounds which contain a C=C double bond. We begin by: (i) their formulas, discussing how they can be made, and some of their reactions; then (ii) looking at cracking of alkanes into smaller alkanes and alkenes; before finally (iii) looking at how alkenes can polymerise via addition polymerisation.
