Dueling Compounds Project

Use- prevents the growth of algae and other bacteria- prevents mildew, leaf spots, blights, and apple scabs

Where is it Found?Occurs also in animal tissue

Where is it Found?Occurs also in petroleum and natural gas

Where is it Found?Both occur naturally in plants

Encounter Ethene- its purest form cannot be found in nature- ethylene glycol can be found in household products such as cosmetics, detergents, antifreeze

Environmental Hazards- highly flammable- highly explosive

Use- making of plastics and anesthetics- ripens and colors fruits

Encounter Copper Sulfate- can be found near plants- can be found in the top layer of soil

Formation by Chemical Reactions- seperated by steam-cracking and refined through distillation and condensation- produced by dehydration of ethanol: (C2H5OH -> C2H4+ H2O)

Formation by Chemical Reactions - copper (II) hydroxide and sulfuric acid are 2 main reactants of copper sulfate

Chemical Processes- polymerization- oxidation- halogenation/hydrohalogenation- alkylation- hydration- oligomerization

Chemical Processes Copper sulfate mixed with lime water creates a chemical that acts as a protective fungicide that affect fruit, vegetables, and other crops

Environmental Hazards- toxic to plants, fish and other aquatic animals

PolarityBoth are non-polar compounds
