Reactions of Alkenes and Alkynes. Chapter 5 Chapter 5 1

Contents of Chapter 4  Electrophilic Addition Reactions  Carbocations  Various Addition Reactions Chapter 5 2

Mechanism for Electrophilic Addition to Alkenes    Reaction of 2-butene with hydrogen bromide is typical of electrophilic addition to alkenes The reaction starts with the slow addition of an electrophile to an

sp 2

carbon, resulting in formation of a carbocation The next step is the rapid addition of a nucleophile to the other

sp 2

carbon Chapter 5 3

Addition of Hydrogen Halides to Alkenes The more substituted carbocation is preferred Chapter 5 4

Stability of Carbocations Alkyl groups (“R”s) tend to stabilize the positive charge on the

sp 2

carbon of a carbocation Chapter 5 5

Transition State Stability Formation of a tertiary carbocation should be faster than formation of a primary carbocation Chapter 5 6

Markovnikov’s Rule   Modern equivalent statement: The electrophile adds to the

sp 2

carbon that forms the least stable carbocation   The other carbon forms the carbocation intermediate.

Predicting product: put + and – signs under carbons and electrophile and nucleophile and swap partners.

Addition of Alcohol Initiating the reaction: generating a carbocation

Addition of Alcohol The resulting carbocation is attacked by the nucleophilic alcohol

Product Analysis Chapter 5 11

Alkynes Common names of alkynes are based on substitution of the simplest alkyne, acetylene Chapter 5 12

• • • IUPAC Nomenclature of Alkynes Find the longest chain containing the triple bond and change the corresponding


ending to


The chain is numbered in direction that gives the triple bond, the lower number If the same number for the triple bond is obtained in numbering from both directions, the number for the substituent nearest the chain end is minimized Chapter 5 13

IUPAC Multifunctional Compound Nomenclature Chapter 5 14

IUPAC Multifunctional Compound Nomenclature • • • • The longest chain has to go past the highest-priority functional group High prio group has lowest possible number If not highest priority NH 2 substituent is amino and OH is hydroxy General form is n-substit-n-alken-n-yn-n-groupsuffix Chapter 5 15

Reactivity Considerations    The hydrohalogenation product is an alkene which can undergo a second electrophilic addition reaction First halogen follows alkene hydrohalogenation regioselectivity rules Second halogen goes on same carbon as first halogen Chapter 5 16

Relative Stabilities of Carbocations Vinyl cations are one level less stable than alkyl cations Chapter 5 17

Halogen Addition to Alkynes  Halogens add to alkynes as well as to alkenes  Excess halogen leads to the addition of a second equivalent

Alkylation reactions

work best with primary alkyl halides and methyl halides Chapter 5 23

Introduction to Multistep Synthesis The thought process is known as

retrosynthetic analysis

and is indicated by using open arrows Chapter 5 24

Introduction to Multistep Synthesis - Considerations  Alkene products made from alkynes  Carbonyl products made from alkynes  Alkane products made from alkenes  Understand issues involved in proper choice of reagents thoroughly Chapter 5 25

Introduction to Multistep Synthesis – Reagent Issues      Regioselectivity of HX + alkene/alkyne rxn Regioselectivity of 2 HX + alkyne rxn Stereospecificity of H


/Lindlar reduction H 2 with Pd/C, Pt/C, or Ni does complete reduction RX + NaNH 2 + H C=C R rxn works best with
