Ch 12 Alcohol & Thiol


Dehydration of alcohol

Dehydration of Alcohol

  • An –H and an –OH of adjacent carbon atoms are removed to form and alkene and water

  • Heat and an acid catalyst are needed

Oxidation of alcohol

Oxidation of Alcohol

  • Oxidation – loss of H atoms or gain of O2 atoms

  • Oxidation occurs when there is an increase in the number of C-O bonds

  • In a reduction, the product has fewer bonds between carbon and oxygen

Oxidation of primary alcohol

Oxidation of Primary Alcohol

  • Primary alcohol produces and aldehyde

    • Removes 2 –H atoms (1 –H from the –OH and 1 –H from the carbon bonded to the –OH)

    • Use the symbol [O] to show oxidizing agent

Oxidation of primary alcohol1

Oxidation of Primary Alcohol

  • Aldehyde oxidizes further with the addition of another O2 to form carboxylic acid

    • Very fast reaction…not easily isolated in a lab

Oxidation of secondary alcohol

Oxidation of Secondary Alcohol

  • Secondary alcohols produce ketones

    • Removes 1 –H atom from –OH and 1 –H atom from the carbon bonded to the –OH

Oxidation of secondary alcohol1

Oxidation of Secondary Alcohol

  • Tertiary alcohols do not oxidize

    • No –H on carbon bonded to –OH

    • C-C bonds too strong to oxidize

Oxidation of thiols

Oxidation of Thiols

  • Thiols undergo oxidation by a loss of –H from the –SH group (more than 1 thiol molecule must be present)

  • Oxidized product is called a disulfide

  • Factoid – protein in hair is cross-linked by disulfide bonds

    • In a ‘perm’…these bonds are broken and then oxidized while in the rollers so hair forms disulfide bonds in a new shape
