Organic Chemistry

The Chemistry of Carbon Compounds

organic chemistry1
“Organic” Chemistry
  • Historically, organic compounds are defined as compounds extracted or isolated from plants and animals.
    • VITALISM: Scientists believed that organic compounds contained a vital force that was only found in living systems
  • Disproved by Friederich Wohler in 1828 by synthesizing urea using inorganic materials (silver cyanate and ammonium chloride)
organic chemistry2
Organic Chemistry
  • Study of carbon compounds
    • Composed of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, phosphorus, and the halogens
  • More than 95% of known compounds are organic compounds (Carbon-containing)
  • Recall
    • Carbons can have 4 bonds
    • Nitrogen can have 3 bonds
    • Oxygen can have 2 bonds
    • Hydrogen can have 1 bond
the secret to organic compounds the unique carbon atom
The Secret to Organic Compounds: the unique carbon atom
  • CATENATION
    • Ability of C-atoms to bond to each other so strongly, they can form long chains.

Eg. Thousands of C-atoms bonded.

    • Each carbon can have four bonds, maximum
common organic compound families
Common organic compound families
  • HYDROCARBONS: Only C and H
    • Alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, arenes, aromatic compounds
  • OXYGEN-CONTAINING
    • Alcohols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, esters, acid anhydrides
  • NITROGEN-CONTAINING
    • Amines, Amides

    • Branched alkanes
    • Cyclic alkanes
cycloalkanes
Cycloalkanes
  • Alkanes that form rings are called cycloalkanes
haloalkanes
Haloalkanes
  • Alkanes with halogens

  • Insoluble in water and are unreactive towards substances
  • Unreactiveness lets them reach the stratosphere and react with the ozone layer

"I fell into a reverie, and lo, the atoms were gamboling before my eyes! Whenever, hitherto, these diminutive beings had appeared to me, they had always been in motion; but up to that time, I had never been able to discern the nature of their motion. Now, however, I saw how, frequently, two smaller atoms united to form a pair; how a larger one embraced the two smaller ones; how still larger ones kept hold of three or even four of the smaller; whilst the whole kept whirling in a giddy dance. I saw how the larger ones formed a chain, dragging the smaller ones after them, but only at the ends of the chain. . . The cry of the conductor: “Clapham Road,” awakened me from my dreaming; but I spent part of the night in putting on paper at least sketches of these dream forms. This was the origin of the Structural Theory."

  • "...I was sitting writing on my textbook, but the work did not progress; my thoughts were elsewhere. I turned my chair to the fire and dozed. Again the atoms were gamboling before my eyes. This time the smaller groups kept modestly in the background. My mental eye, rendered more acute by the repeated visions of the kind, could now distinguish larger structures of manifold conformation; long rows sometimes more closely fitted together all twining and twisting in snake-like motion. But look! What was that? One of the snakes had seized hold of its own tail, and the form whirled mockingly before my eyes. As if by a flash of lightning I awoke; and this time also I spent the rest of the night in working out the consequences of the hypothesis."

functional groups
Functional Groups
  • Determines the properties of the organic compound
    • Compounds with the same functional group will react similarly
