Tip: Think of the Alkane, Alkene, and Alkyne classifications alphabetically, since Alkane is first alphabetically, it contains only single bonds.
Tip: Think of the Alkane, Alkene, and Alkyne classifications alphabetically, since Alkene is second alphabetically, it contains at least one double bond.
Tip: Think of the Alkane, Alkene, and Alkyne classifications alphabetically, since Alkyne is third alphabetically, it contains at least one triple bond.
Tip: Alcohol is a very basic Functional Group, so simply remember that if you see an OH single bonded, it's an alc(OH)ol.
Tip: Remember Ether, think of an Ethernet cable connected to an (O)utlet as a chain connected to an O.
Tip: Since this is the only O double bond group with an H in its name, you can simply remember it is the O double bond group that is also connected to an H.
Tip: Remember that since this O double bond group doesn't have any other elements attached, it has OWN(ketONE)-ly an O double bond.
Tip: Because this group is an O double bond with an OH, you can remember that OH is an acid, and since it is connected to the O double bonded element, it is considered an acid.
Tip: Since this group contains an O connected to the O double bonded element, you can visualize one O as a basket, and another O as an egg going into the basket, similar to the holiday of Easter.
Tip: Think of this compound as the compound in the N bond groups that contains no O, since there is no O Am(In)e the group.
(The amount of H in the NH compound determines if this is a primary (NH), secondary (NH2), or tertiary (NH3). Primary is unsaturated, all others are saturated.)
Tip: Remember that the compound has O and C with the phrase "There is an O and C amide the group".
Tip: Simply remember that if this ring was cut in half, it would be Aromatic.
Tip: Since this is simply an Alcohol connected to an aromatic ring, remember Alc(OH)ol + Aromatic.
Tip: Usually, if the compound contains sulfur, it is Thiol. Remember this by using the term "H and S is quite a mess, but all and all it's Thiol".
