Chapter 16


The carbonyl group

The Carbonyl Group

  • In this and several following chapters, we study the physical and chemical properties of classes of compounds containing the carbonyl group, C=O.

    • aldehydes and ketones (Chapter 16)

    • carboxylic acids (Chapter 17)

    • acid halides, acid anhydrides, esters, amides (Chapter 18)

    • enolate anions (Chapter 19)


16 1 the carbonyl group

16.1 The Carbonyl Group

  • the carbonyl group consists of one sigma bond formed by the overlap of sp2 hybrid orbitals and one pi bond formed by the overlap of parallel 2p orbitals.

  • pi bonding and pi antibonding MOs for formaldehyde.

16 2 a nomenclature

16.2 A.Nomenclature

  • IUPAC names:

    • the parent chain is the longest chain that contains the functional group.

    • for an aldehyde, change the suffix from -e to –al.

    • for an unsaturated aldehyde, change the infix from -an- to -en-; the location of the suffix determines the numbering pattern.

    • for a cyclic molecule in which -CHO is bonded to the ring, add the suffix –carbaldehyde.


B nomenclature aldehydes

B. Nomenclature: Aldehydes

  • the IUPAC retains the common names benzaldehyde and cinnamaldehyde, as well formaldehyde and acetaldehyde.


Nomenclature ketones

Nomenclature: Ketones

  • IUPAC names

    • the parent alkane is the longest chain that contains the carbonyl group.

    • indicate the ketone by changing the suffix -e to -one.

    • number the chain to give C=O the smaller number.

    • the IUPAC retains the common names acetone, acetophenone, and benzophenone.


Order of precedence table 16 1

Order of Precedence, Table 16.1

  • For compounds that contain more than one functional group indicated by a suffix.


C common names

C. Common Names

  • for an aldehyde, the common name is derived from the common name of the corresponding carboxylic acid.

  • for a ketone, name the two alkyl or aryl groups bonded to the carbonyl carbon and add the word ketone.


16 3 physical properties

16.3 Physical Properties

  • Oxygen is more electronegative than carbon (3.5 vs 2.5) and, therefore, a C=O group is polar.

    • aldehydes and ketones are polar compounds and interact in the pure state by dipole-dipole interaction.

    • they have higher boiling points and are more soluble in water than nonpolar compounds of comparable molecular weight.


Preparation of aldehydes and ketones

Preparation of aldehydes and ketones

  • Review of methods previously seen in 3010.

    • Oxidation of alkenes with conc. KMnO4

    • Oxidation of alkenes with O3

    • Oxidation of 1o alcohols with PCC

    • Oxidation of 2o alcohols with Na2Cr2O4 + H2SO4

    • Oxidation of glycols with HIO4

    • Hydroysis of alkynes

    • Hydroboration/oxidation of alkynes


16 4 reaction themes nu attack at c

16.4 Reaction Themes , Nu attack at C

  • One of the most common reaction themes of a carbonyl group is addition of a nucleophile to form a tetrahedral carbonyl addition compound.


Reaction themes o attack at h

Reaction Themes , O attack at H

  • A second common theme is reaction with a proton or other Lewis acid to form a resonance-stabilized cation.

    • protonation increases the electron deficiency of the carbonyl carbon and makes it more reactive toward nucleophiles.


Reaction themes stereochemistry

Reaction Themes, stereochemistry

  • often the tetrahedral product of addition to a carbonyl is a new chiral center.

  • if none of the starting materials is chiral and the reaction takes place in an achiral environment, then enantiomers will be formed as a racemic mixture.


16 5 addition of c nucleophiles

16.5 Addition of C Nucleophiles

  • Addition of carbon nucleophiles is one of the most important types of nucleophilic additions to a C=O group.

    • a new carbon-carbon bond is formed in the process.

    • we study addition of these carbon nucleophiles.


A grignard reagents

A. Grignard Reagents

  • Given the difference in electronegativity between carbon and magnesium (2.5 - 1.3), the C-Mg bond is polar covalent, with C- and Mg+.

    • in its reactions, a Grignard reagent behaves as a carbanion.

  • Carbanion:an anion in which carbon has an unshared pair of electrons and bears a negative charge.

    • a carbanion is a good nucleophile and adds to the carbonyl group of aldehydes and ketones.


Grignard reagents 1 o alcohols

Grignard Reagents, 1o alcohols

  • addition of a Grignard reagent to formaldehyde followed by H3O+ gives a 1° alcohol.

B organolithium compounds

B. Organolithium Compounds

  • Organolithium compounds, RLi, give the same C=O addition reactions as RMgX but generally are more reactive and usually give higher yields.

Acidity of hydrogens

Acidity of -Hydrogens

  • -Hydrogens are more acidic because the enolate anion is stabilized by:

-Halogenation, in base

  • Base-promoted -halogenation:

    • each successive halogenation is more rapid than the previous one.

    • the introduction of the electronegative halogen on the -carbon increases the acidity of the remaining -hydrogens and, thus, each successive -hydrogen is removed more rapidly than the previous one.
