Sample Text:
Crude oil is first extracted from the ground and must be refined into alkanes and alkenes. 1. Fractional Distillation : separating different hydrocarbon compounds by differing molecular weights. • The lower the molecular weight of the hydrocarbon, the lower its boiling point - due to lower intermolecular dispersion forces. • The fractional column gets cooler with height, and so HCs with the lowest bp will condense and collect at the top while the longer chained, higher bp HCs will collect at the bottom. (B.P. affected by: size of molecule, types of intermolecular forces). 2. Cracking : the chemical process of breaking down a long chain alkane into a shorter chain alkane and alkene. Eg. C 8 H 18  C 6 H 14 + C 2 H 4 (decomposition reaction) • Steam/T...

Production of Materials

This student studied:
HSC - Year 12 - Chemistry

Detailed complete set of notes for production of materials. Petroleum (Crude Oil) o A mixture of hundreds and thousands of alkanes, ranging from methane up to alkanes with forty or more carbons. o Formed through the burial and compaction of marine organisms, over millions of years. It contains varying amounts of sulfur, oxygen and nitrogen containing compounds and because it is such a complex mixture, its needs to be refined before use. o Petroleum can be separated into fractions to be useful, done via fractional distillation. o The output of petrol and ethylene from the fractional distillation of crude oil is insufficient to meet demand on the market. “Cracking” is done to overcome this problem.
