Chemistry Now: Chemical Bonds: Single, Double, Bond Placement

Single bonds, double bonds, bond placement. Molecules profiled: eugenol, isoeugenol. This video focuses on chemical bonds by profiling eugenol and isoeugenol, two molecules with identical molecular structures except for the placement of one double bond--a difference that makes eugenol responsible for the flavor and aroma of cloves, and isoeugenol responsible for the taste and smell of nutmeg.
