In this chapter, we will explore basic organic concepts including nomenclature, structure, and functional groups.

Chapter 16Organic Chemistry

what is an organic compound
What Is an Organic Compound?
  • Organic vs Inorganic
  • Vital Force
  • Synthesis of urea
  • Carbon chemistry
    • Most naturally occurring or synthesized compounds.

    • C-C covalent bonds
    • C bonds with other nonmetals
    • Strong
    • Multiple bonds

the unsaturated hydrocarbons alkenes and alkynes
The Unsaturated Hydrocarbons: Alkenes and Alkynes
  • Hydrocarbons with C=C or C C are unsaturated.
  • Alkene for double bond, alkyne for triple bond.
  • Unsaturated because they do not contain the maximum possible H per C.

  • Disubstituted benzenes
    • Ortho, Meta, Para
the chemistry of petroleum products
The Chemistry of Petroleum Products
  • Natural gas (mostly methane)
    • Typically distributed by pipeline
  • Crude oil
    • Mixture of hydrocarbons
      • Thermal reforming, cracking
      • Catalytic reforming, cracking
    • Used to increase octane number.
the chemistry of coal

the chemistry of coal2
The Chemistry of Coal
  • Large US supply
  • Prefer liquid fuels over solid fuels
    • Converted to synthetic gas
      • …on to methanol or other liquid fuels.
  • Fischer-Tropsh reaction
    • Liquid hydrocarbons from coal.
functional groups
Functional Groups
  • The presentation of organic reactions is organized around functional groups.
  • As an example, the double bond in an alkene is a functional group.
  • There are many others.
functional groups1
Functional Groups

Table 16.5 and Table 16.6

oxidation reduction reactions
Oxidation-Reduction Reactions
  • Already discussed these in Chapter 12.
  • Oxidation numbers discussed in Section 5.16
  • Organic redox can be characterized by
    • Changes in oxidation numbers, or
    • Changes in number of H atoms present, or
    • Changes in number of O atoms present.
oxidation reduction reactions2
Oxidation-Reduction Reactions
  • For example, carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide is an oxidation
  • …methanol to methane is a reduction.
alkyl halides
Alkyl Halides
  • Formed from alkane and halogen in the presence of UV light.
  • Chain-reaction mechanism
alkyl halides1
Alkyl Halides
  • Chain reaction mechanism
    • Initiation
    • Propagation
    • Termination
alcohols and ethers
Alcohols and Ethers
  • Alcohol, ROH, is a functional group.
  • Names end in ol.
    • Also common names such as wood alcohol.
  • Classified as primary, secondary, or tertiary.
  • Are Brønsted acids.
alcohols and ethers1
Alcohols and Ethers
  • Conjugate base of alcohol is alkoxide.
  • Alcohol related to water by replacement of one H.
  • Replace both Hs in water and get ether.
alcohols and ethers2
Alcohols and Ethers
  • Ethers, ROR’.
  • Alcohols H bond, ethers do not.
    • Affects bp.
    • Affects solubility in water.
  • Ethers are an example of aprotic solvents.
aldehydes and ketones
Aldehydes and Ketones
  • Primary Alcohol that has be dehydrogenated
    • CH3CH2OH → CH3COH
  • If alcohol is secondary, ketone results.
    • RC(OH)HR’ → RCOR’
aldehydes and ketones1
Aldehydes and Ketones
  • Nomenclature
    • Aldehydes named from corresponding carboxylic acid
    • Ending with al.
aldehydes and ketones2
Aldehydes and Ketones
  • Nomenclature
    • Ketones named with two alkyl groups plus ketone.

ethyl methyl ketone

reactions at the carbonyl group
Reactions at the Carbonyl Group
  • RR’C=O has negative end (O) and positive end (C).
    • Electrophiles are attracted to O.
      • For example, H+.
    • Nucleophiles are attracted to C.
      • For example, alkoxide.
carboxylic acids and carboxylate ions
Carboxylic Acids and Carboxylate Ions
  • OH attached to carbonyl C makes a carboxylic acid, -COOH.
  • Carboxylate ion, -COO-.
    • Resonance structures
  • Names end in -oic acid.
  • Common names
  • Carboxylic acid plus alcohol produces ester plus water.
  • Other more efficient methods to prepare esters.
  • Name also includes product of strong acid and alcohol
    • Carboxylic acid esters are RCO2R’.
amines alkaloids and amides
Amines, Alkaloids, and Amides
  • Ammonia with one or more H replaced with alkyl.
  • Like alcohols, have primary, secondary, and tertiary.
  • Name has -amine at end.
  • Amines are bases, just like ammonia.
amines alkaloids and amides1
Amines, Alkaloids, and Amides
  • To improve water solubility, ammonium salts prepared.
  • Amides are a combination of carboxylic acids and amines.
    • Produced via acyl chloride and amine
      • RCOCl + 2R’NH2 → RCONHR’+ R’NH3Cl-
  • Alkaloids isolated from plants…
alkene stereoisomers
Alkene Stereoisomers
  • Already discussed constitutional isomers in section 16.2
  • Another type of isomer is called stereoisomer.
    • cis and trans are stereoisomers.
  • Not all alkenes have cis and trans isomers.
alkene stereoisomers1
Alkene Stereoisomers
  • cis and trans not always enough to describe alkene stereoisomer.
    • E and Z methods more versatile.
      • Substituent atoms prioritized by atomic number: E and Z used to describe position of the two highest priority atoms.
stereogenic atoms
Stereogenic Atoms
  • The two C atoms in C=C when cis and trans isomers are possible are stereogenic atoms.
  • Other possibilities for stereogenic atoms.
    • The C in CHFClBr is stereogenic.
stereogenic atoms1
Stereogenic Atoms
  • Any tetrahedral C with 4 different atoms attached will be stereogenic.
stereogenic atoms2
Stereogenic Atoms
  • Stereoisomers may be mirror images of each other: enantiomers.
    • If the mirror images are not superposable, the stereoisomers are chiral.

stereogenic atoms3
Stereogenic Atoms

…or they may not be mirror images of each other: diastereomers.

  • cis and trans isomers are diastereomers.
optical activity
Optical Activity
  • Optically active compounds
    • Rotate the plane of polarized light.
  • Specific rotation is a measure of the ability of a compound to do this.
optical activity1
Optical Activity
  • Need a method for distinguishing the left handed and right handed version of a chiral center in a molecule or ion.
    • As before, substituents are prioritized.
    • R and S used to designate the two possible orientations of substituents.
