Slide2 l.jpg

  • The Acidity of the a Hydrogens of Carbonyl Compounds: Enolate Anions

    • Hydrogens on carbons a to carbonyls are unusually acidic

      • The resulting anion is stabilized by resonance to the carbonyl

  • Keto and Enol Tautomers oxygen

    • Enol-keto tautomers are constitutional isomers that are easily interconverted by a trace of acid or base

      • Most aldehydes and ketones exist primarily in the keto form because of the greater strength of the carbon-oxygen double bond relative to the carbon-carbon double bond

Chapter 17


Slide5 l.jpg

  • b oxygen -Dicarbonyl compounds exist primarily in the enol form

    • The enol is more stable because it has a conjugated p system and because of stabilization of the enol through hydrogen bonding

Chapter 17

  • Reactions via Enols and Enolate Anions oxygen

    • Racemization

      • An optically active aldehyde or ketone with a stereocenter at the a-carbon can racemize in the presence of catalytic acid or base

        • The intermediate enol or enolate has no stereocenter at the a position

Chapter 17

  • Halogenation of Ketones shown below

    • Ketones can be halogenated at the a position in the presence of acid or base and X2

      • Base-promoted halogenation occurs via an enolate

Chapter 17



Slide10 l.jpg

  • Haloform Reaction shown below

    • Reaction of methyl ketones with X2 in the presence of base results in multiple halogenation at the methyl carbon

      • Insert mechanism page 777

Chapter 17


Slide11 l.jpg

  • When methyl ketones react with X shown below2 in aqueous hydroxide the reaction gives a carboxylate anion and a haloform (CX3H)

    • The trihalomethyl anion is a relatively good leaving group because the negative charge is stabilized by the three halogen atoms

  • Dehydration of the Aldol Product Aldehydes and Ketones

    • If the aldol reaction mixture is heated, dehydration to an a,b-unsaturated carbonyl compound takes place

      • Dehydration is favorable because the product is stabilized by conjugation of the alkene with the carbonyl group

    • In some aldol reactions, the aldol product cannot be isolated because it is rapidly dehydrated to the a,b-unsaturated compound

Chapter 17


Slide15 l.jpg

  • Synthetic Applications Aldehydes and Ketones

    • The aldol reaction links two smaller molecules and creates a new carbon-carbon bond

Chapter 17


Slide16 l.jpg

  • The Reversibility of Aldol Additions

    • Aldol addition products undergo retro-aldol reactions in the presence of strong base

  • Chapter 17


    Slide17 l.jpg

    Chapter 17


    Slide18 l.jpg

    • Crossed Aldol Reactions because the equilibrium favors the starting ketone

      • Crossed aldol reactions (aldol reactions involving two different aldehydes) are of little use when they lead to a mixture of products

    Chapter 17


    Slide19 l.jpg

    • Practical Crossed Aldol Reactions because the equilibrium favors the starting ketone

      • Crossed aldol reactions give one predictable product when one of the reaction partners has no a hydrogens

        • The carbonyl compound without any ahydrogens is put in basic solution, and the carbonyl with one or two a hydrogens is added slowly

        • Dehydration usually occurs immediately, especially if an extended conjugated system results

    Chapter 17


    Slide20 l.jpg

    • Claisen-Schmidt Reactions because the equilibrium favors the starting ketone

      • Crossed-aldol reactions in which one partner is a ketone are called Claisen-Schmidt reactions

        • The product of ketone self-condensation is not obtained because the equilibrium is not favorable

    Chapter 17


    Slide21 l.jpg

    Chapter 17 because the equilibrium favors the starting ketone


    Slide22 l.jpg

    • Condensation with Nitroalkanes because the equilibrium favors the starting ketone

      • The a hydrogens of nitroalkanes are weakly acidic (pKa = 10) because the resulting anion is resonance stabilized

      • Nitroalkane anions can undergo aldol-like condensation with aldehydes and ketones

        • The nitro group can be easily reduced to an amine

    Chapter 17


    Slide23 l.jpg

    • Cyclization via Aldol Condensations because the equilibrium favors the starting ketone

      • Intramolecular reaction of dicarbonyl compounds proceeds to form five- and six-membered rings preferentially

        • In the following reaction the aldehyde carbonyl carbon is attacked preferentially because an aldehyde is less sterically hindered and more electrophilic than a ketone

    Chapter 17


    Slide24 l.jpg

    • Lithium Enolates because the equilibrium favors the starting ketone

      • In the presence of a very strong base such as lithium diisopropyl amide (LDA), enolate formation is greatly favored

        • Weak bases such as sodium hydroxide produce only a small amount of the enolate

    Chapter 17


    Slide25 l.jpg

    • Regioselective Formation of Enolate Anions because the equilibrium favors the starting ketone

      • Unsymmetrical ketones can form two different enolates

      • The thermodynamic enolate is the most stable enolate i.e. the one with the more highly substituted double bond

        • A weak base favors the thermodynamic enolate because an equilibrium between the enolates is estabilished

      • The kinetic enolate is the enolate formed fastest and it usually is the enolate with the least substituted double bond

        • A strong, sterically hindered base such as lithium diisopropyl amide favors formation of the kinetic enolate

    Chapter 17


    Slide26 l.jpg

    • Lithium Enolates in Directed Aldol Reactions because the equilibrium favors the starting ketone

      • Crossed aldol reactions proceed effectively when a ketone is first deprotonated with a strong base such as LDA and the aldehyde is added slowly to the enolate

    Chapter 17

    Slide28 l.jpg

    • Direct Alkylation of Ketones via Lithium Enolates LDA to form the kinetic enolate and this will react with an aldehyde to give primarily one product

      • Enolates can also be alkylated with primary alkyl halides via an SN2 reaction

        • Unsymmetrical ketones can be alkylated at the least substituted position if LDA is used to form the kinetic enolate

    Chapter 17


    Slide29 l.jpg

    • a LDA to form the kinetic enolate and this will react with an aldehyde to give primarily one product-Selenation: A Synthesis of a,b-Unsaturated Carbonyl Compounds

      • A lithium enolate can be selenated with benzeneselenyl bromide

    Chapter 17


    Slide30 l.jpg

    • The LDA to form the kinetic enolate and this will react with an aldehyde to give primarily one producta-selenyl ketone is converted to the a,b-unsaturated carbonyl compound by reaction with hydrogen peroxide

      • Elimination of the selenoxide produces the unsaturated carbonyl

    Chapter 17


    Slide31 l.jpg

    • Additions to LDA to form the kinetic enolate and this will react with an aldehyde to give primarily one producta,b-Unsaturated Aldehydes and Ketones

      • a,b-Unsaturated aldehydes and ketones can react by simple (1,2) or conjugate (1,4) addition

        • Both the carbonyl carbon and the b carbon are electrophilic and can react with nucleophiles

    Chapter 17 addition whereas weaker nucleophiles such as cyanide or amines favor 1,4 addition


    Slide34 l.jpg

    • Conjugate Addition of Organocopper Reagents addition whereas weaker nucleophiles such as cyanide or amines favor 1,4 addition

      • Organocopper reagents add almost exclusively in a conjugate manner to a,b-unsaturated aldehydes and ketones

    Chapter 17


    Slide35 l.jpg

    • Michael Additions addition whereas weaker nucleophiles such as cyanide or amines favor 1,4 addition

      • Addition of an enolate to an a,b-unsaturated carbonyl compound usually occurs by conjugate addition

      • This reaction is called a Michael addition
