Functional Group Trivia! Chemistry Questions Quiz

Some atoms have a specific way of behavior whenever they are in compounds, and they are classified explicitly into hydroxyl, methyl, carbonyl, carboxyl, amino, phosphate, and sulfhydryl. Try out this chemistry questions quiz on the functional groups and refresh your understanding of how they behave.
