Function group is an atom
group of atoms in a molecules
that gives the molecules characteristic chemical properties.
Hydrocarbon portion + Functional group
PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF FUNCTIONAL GROUP:
Chemical properties depends on functional group because it takes part in a chemical reaction.
Physical properties depends on remaining part of the molecule (alkyl group)
e.g. boiling point of ethyl is greater than methyl due to the large molecule size(ethyl).
