Unimolecular - rate depends on concentration of only the substrate. Does NOT occur with primary alkyl halides (leaving groups). Strong acid can promote loss of OH as H2O or OR as HOR if tertiary or conjugated carbocation can be synthesized.15 Comparison of Enolization and Nucleophilic Reactions Enolization Nucleophilic Reactions 1) In this type of reaction tautomerism happens. 1) In these types of reactions there is no phenomenon of tautomerism is happens. 2) They are also known as alpha substitution reactions.
The Wittig reaction is valuable reaction. It has unique properties that allows for a carbon=carbon double bond to form from where a C=O double bond used to be located. Creating additional C=C double bonds is valuable due to its use in synthesis. The Wittig reaction will allow the synthesis of Stilbene (E and Z) from a Benzaldehyde (Ketcha, 141). One purpose of a Wittig reaction is the formation of alkenes from aldehydes or ketones employing a carbo-phosphorous ylide, which is stabilized vie resonance to allow for the carbon bonded to phosphorus to be deprotonate from by a base (Ketcha, 142).
Introduction:- In organic chemistry the substitution reactions is the most important reactions, especially Nucleophilic aromatic substitution reactions where nucleophile attacks positive charge or partially positive charge As it does so, it replaces a weaker nucleophile which then becomes a leaving group. The remaining positive or partially positive atom becomes an electrophile. The general form of the reaction is: Nuc: + R-LG → R-Nuc + LG: The electron pair (:) from the nucleophile (Nuc :) attacks the substrate (R-LG) forming a new covalent bond Nuc-R-LG. The prior state of charge is restored when the leaving group (LG) departs with an electron pair. The principal product in this case is R-Nuc.
It is type of condensation reaction, which involve the condensation of acidic anhydride and aldehyde in the presence of weak base (i.e. Sodium and potassium salt of the acid or trimethylamine) to give unsaturated carboxylic acid. (Equation-1).In 1968 Perkin described the very first example of such type condensation reaction, involve the synthesis of coumarin by condensing the sodium or potassium salt of salicylaldehyde with acetic anhydride (Equation-2).Generally such type of reaction is only applicable to aromatic aldehyde and useful for the preparation of substituted cinnamic acid (Equation-3) Equation-1 Equation-2 Equation-3 In 1883.A very important variation is done by plӧchl, which involve the heating of benzaldehyde
Aromaticity can be termed as a chemical property of conjugated cycloalkenes. Aromaticity deals with the uncommon stability of benzene and its derivatives, which is caused by the ability of the electrons in the p-orbitals to delocalize and act as a framework to generate planar molecules. A molecule is only considered aromatic due to the fact that it is cyclic, that it follows the Huckel’s Rule and lastly that each element must have a p-orbital. Antioxidants play and important role in health. It can be defined as a group of organic chemicals and have been used to hinder the process of oxidative degradation of food products, fats and oils and polymers.
Since alkenes are immiscible with concentrated HBr, tetrabutylammonium bromide is used as a phase-transfer catalyst. It forms a complex with HBr and extracts it from the aqueous phase into the organic phase where the alkene is. This dehydrates the acid, making it more reactive so that the addition reaction is possible. Rapid stirring is required in order to maximize the surface area
Though there is starch in the mix of chemicals, the triiodide doesn 't react with it because that starch is immediately consumed in a reaction with the thiosulfate. Equation 2: I3S- + 2 S2O32- → 3 I- + S4O62- • I3S- = Triiodide • S2O32- = Thiosulfate ion • 3 I- = Iodide ion • S4O62- = Tetrathionate ion Here, the triiodide reacts with thiosulfate to form iodide ions and tetrathionate. This reaction is so fast that none of the triiodide has time to form a complex with starch, even though the starch is in the reaction mix. The reactions in Equations 1 and 2 are moving along during the lag time between mixing the chemicals and the dramatic appearance of the blue color. Note that iodide ions are regenerated in Equation 2, so they are available to react with the hydrogen peroxide in Equation 1.
Barbituric acid is the parent compound of barbiturate drugs, although barbituric acid itself is not pharmacologically active. The compound was discovered by the German chemist Adolf von Baeyer on December 4, 1864, the feast of Saint Barbara. One class of barbiturate derivatives is called thiobarbiturates, which contain a sulphur molecule in place of one of the oxygens. The most important member of this class is sodium pentothal, which is used as an intravenous anesthetic from which recovery is rapid and which has the advantage of having very little or no side effects. Barbiturates come in many forms, it also depends on which barbiturate it is.
They found that carbon dioxide needed to be activated to build hydroxybenzoic acids with alkali metal phenoxide. They came to this realization by coordinating the alkali metal with the carbon dioxide. This caused the formation of the MOPh-CO2 complex. As the carboxylation reaction proceeded, a direct carboxylation of the benzene ring with another molecule of carbon dioxide did not take place, instead, the CO2 moiety of the MOPh-CO2 complex performed an electrophilic attack on the benzene ring in the ortho and para positions. It was shown that the intramolecular conversion of the MOPh-CO2 complex was the most responsible for the products distribution of the Kolbe-Schmitt reaction.
Also, salt is an ionic compound and not a polar covalent compound, even though it did not melt last, due to the fact that the elements Na and Cl, both lose or gain an electron and then bond because of their opposite charges, which is a property only ionic bonds possess. The wax was the only substance whose results were synonymous with my hypothesis, since it required a low temperature for its melting point and was not soluble in water, both properties of nonpolar covalent compounds. Potential sources of error included not labeling the spots each substance was placed in the aluminum foil boat, seeing as the result for sugar seemed to be the correct conclusion for salt and vice versa. A future experiment would involve individually testing each substance in an aluminum foil boat, of the same brand, on a heat plate in order to avoid uncertainty. Each substance should be timed to record the precise time each substance began to melt or burn.
Alcohols 1-Octanol, and 1-butanol were both found to be soluble in hexane while methyl alcohol was determined to be insoluble. when water was added to the different alcohols the opposite reaction occurred compared to hexane. 1-Octanol, and 1-butanol were both insoluble while methyl alcohol was the only soluble alcohol. 3.
The IR analysis indicated a distinctive peak at 1778.43 representing ketone, and another peak at 1226.73 representing ether. The peak at 1400-1600 was indicative of either a ring structure or an alkene group. The reactants were dissolved in xylene since they have more solubility compared to the product which undergoes crystallization. Thereafter the mixture was refluxed to maintain constancy in temperature and ensure mixing. Since xylene has a high boiling point of 140 °C, the reaction proceeded speedily.
Explain why ethanal gives a positive iodoform test. • Ethanal is the only aldehyde to give a the positive result because the reaction requires a methyl group connected to a carbon atom with a keto or an OH- substituent. 2- In semicarbazone formation only one of the two –NH2groups in semicarbazide undergoes nucleophilic addition to the carbonyl group. Explain the difference in the reactivity of these two –NH2 groups, using resonance structures. • Within the semicarbazone formation there are two –NH2 groups.
