Hey, guys, In this new video, we're gonna take a look at the concept of hydrocarbons. So hydrocarbons, a term of hydrocarbon refers to compounds that contain Onley, carbons and hydrogen. Remember, hydro in organic chem does not mean water. Hydro actually refers to hydrogen. We're gonna say these compounds may possess single, double or triple bonds. We're gonna say carbons are tetra valid? Remember, I've dropped this word numerous times. Carbon is tetra valid, meaning that when they aren't neutral, they must make four bonds. So when carbon is neutral, it has to make four bonds anyway that it can. There are rare exceptions, or you're going to see a neutral carbon not making four bonds again. Those rare exceptions, you'll see them more so in organic chemistry. When you first take organic one, you'll hear about structures called Khar beans. Car beans are an exception to this, but don't worry. You typically don't learn about car beans until about two thirds of the way into organic one. Now here, al Canes aims. They have nothing but single bonds between their carbon and hydrogen and all. Keen has at least one carbon double bonded toe, another carbon and all kind has at least one carbon triple bonded toe, another carbon and then benzene is this special ring here that we have. So all of these represent different types of hydrocarbons. They only have carbons and hydrogen in them. Now here, knowing that is key to understanding how best to, um, name them what kind of reactions they undergo. Ah, lot of different things. It all starts with being able to identify the different types of hydrocarbons that we have. So, guys, once we've known these four different types, we can then move on toe. All came prefixes, so make sure you come back and take a look at the next video. Where I talk about Al came prefixes.
