Product Description
This resource is a PowerPoint presentation introducing the concept of organic chemistry functional groups. The context "amphetamines" may be recognised by students who have watched Breaking Bad.i

Amphetamine mimics the properties of adrenaline due to similariites between the chemical structures of the molecules.

Adrenaline kick starts the body when a fast reaction is needed, It is released in response to anxiety, exercise, or fear. This is the basis of the so-called 'fight-or-flight' reaction. .

During World War II, amphetamines and methamphetamine were used extensively by both the Allied and Axis forces for their stimulant and performance-enhancing effects. As the addictive properties of the drug became known, governments began to place strict controls on the sale of amphetamine.
