How Are Ketones Formed Chemistry

Synthesis Of Ketones

Synthesis Of Ketones

Like aldehydes, ketones can be prepared in a number of ways. The following sections detail some of the more common preparation methods: the oxidation of secondary alcohols, the hydration of alkynes, the ozonolysis of alkenes, Friedel‐Crafts acylation, the use of lithium dialkylcuprates, and the use of a Grignard reagent. The oxidation of secondary alcohols to ketones may be carried out using strong oxidizing agents, because further oxidation of a ketone occurs with great difficulty. Normal oxidizing agents include potassium dichromate (K 2Cr 2O 7) and chromic acid (H 2CrO 4). The conversion of 2‐propanol to 2‐propanone illustrates the oxidation of a secondary alcohol. The addition of water to an alkyne leads to the formation of an unstable vinyl alcohol. These unstable materials undergo keto‐enol tautomerization to form ketones. The hydration of propyne forms 2‐propanone, as the following figure illustrates. When one or both alkene carbons contain two alkyl groups, ozonolysis generates one or two ketones. The ozonolysis of 1,2‐dimethyl propene produces both 2‐propanone (a ketone) and ethanal (an aldehyde). Friedel‐Crafts acylations are used to prepare aromatic ketones. The preparation of acetophenone from benzene and acetyl chloride is a typical Friedel‐Crafts acylation. The addition of a lithium dialkylcuprate (Gilman reagent) to an acyl chloride at low temperatures produces a ketone. This method produces a good yield of acetophenone. Hydrolysis of the salt formed by reacting a Grignard reagent with a nitrile produces good ketone yields. For example, you can prepare acetone by reacting the Grignard reagent methyl magnesium bromide (CH 3MgBr) with methyl nitrile (CH 3C&tbond;N). Continue reading >>

The Simple Two-step Pattern For Seven Key Reactions Of Aldehydes And Ketones

The Simple Two-step Pattern For Seven Key Reactions Of Aldehydes And Ketones

“There are just so many reactions! I can’t remember all the mechanisms!!” – distressed organic chemistry student Yes, yes there are a lot of reactions, particularly in second semester organic chemistry. But there is good news on this front: there is a tremendous amount of repetition in these reactions. For instance, what if I told you that there was a simple, two-step pattern behind seven different reactions that each work for aldehydes and ketones? By learning this key pattern, you’d therefore know the mechanism for 7*2 = 14 different reactions. That would be useful, right? The two steps are the following: Addition of a nucleophile to an aldehyde or ketone Protonation of the negatively charged oxygen with acid (often called “acidic workup”) That’s it. Here’s the general case for the reaction. I’ve drawn an aldehyde here, but everything I will say here also applies to ketones. What bonds form, and what bonds break? Hopefully you can see that a C–O (π) bond is being broken, a C–Nu bond is being formed, and an O–H bond is formed also. Any mechanism we draw has to account for these bond-forming and bond-breaking events. Step 1 is addition of a nucleophile to the electrophilic carbonyl carbon. This forms C–Nu and breaks C–O (π), resulting in a negatively charged oxygen. Step 2 is addition of an acid (“protonation”), which results in formation of the O–H bond. This is generally done after the reaction with the nucleophile is complete – otherwise the acid would destroy the nucleophile, sometimes in violent fashion (e.g. LiAlH4 is not something you’d want to bring in close proximity to acid). Here’s the general mechanism: This two-step pattern is behind the following seven reactions: Again, although aldehydes are pictured here, the r Continue reading >>

Today’s video is about the formation of acetals from aldehydes and ketones, an important method for the protection of the carbonyl group. One thing I forgot to mention in the video is that the reaction is an equilibrium – choosing alcohol as the solvent ensures that the equilibrium will be driven towards formation of the acetal, whereas treatment of acetals in aqueous acid leads to re-formation of the carbonyl group.

Aldehydes And Ketones Formation: Copper-catalyzed Aerobic Oxidative Decarboxylation Of Phenylacetic Acids And Α-hydroxyphenylacetic Acids

Abstract Aromatic aldehydes or ketones from copper catalyzed aerobic oxidative decarboxylation of phenylacetic acids and α-hydroxyphenylacetic acids have been synthesized. This reaction combined decarboxylation, dioxygen activation, and C–H bond oxidation steps in a one-pot protocol with molecular oxygen as the sole terminal oxidant. This reaction represents a novel decarboxylation of an sp3-hybridized carbon and the use of a benzylic carboxylic acid as a source of carbonyl compounds.

What Are Ketones?

What Are Ketones?

With the gradual resurgence of low-carb diets in recent years, the word “ketones” is thrown around a lot. But many people aren’t really aware of the details. What are ketones, really? And what do they do in the body? There can be a lot of misinformation regarding the answers to these questions, so read on for a full overview of ketones and their role in a ketogenic diet. Ketones, also known as “ketone bodies,” are byproducts of the body breaking down fat for energy that occurs when carbohydrate intake is low. Here’s how it works: When there isn’t a sufficient level of available glucose — which is what the body uses for its main source of fuel — and glycogen levels are depleted, blood sugar and insulin are lowered and the body looks for an alternative source of fuel: in this case, fat. This process can happen when a person fasting, after prolonged exercise, during starvation, or when eating a low-carb, ketogenic diet. And when the body begins breaking down fats for energy like this, a process known as beta-oxidation, ketones are formed for use as fuel for the body and brain. This is known as ketosis. People following a ketogenic diet specifically reduce their carbohydrate intake for this reason: to create ketones for energy. Many people use the benefits of ketosis — less reliance on carbs and more burning of fat — to possibly help lower blood pressure, reduce cravings, improve cholesterol, increase weight loss, improve energy, and more. TYPES OF KETONE BODIES So, what else about ketones do we need to know? To start, there are technically three types of ketone bodies: Acetoacetate (AcAc) Beta-hydroxybutyric acid (BHB) Acetone Both acetoacetate and beta-hydroxybutyrate are responsible for transporting energy from the liver to other tissues in the body Continue reading >>

Ketone

Ketone

Not to be confused with ketone bodies. Ketone group Acetone In chemistry, a ketone (alkanone) /ˈkiːtoʊn/ is an organic compound with the structure RC(=O)R', where R and R' can be a variety of carbon-containing substituents. Ketones and aldehydes are simple compounds that contain a carbonyl group (a carbon-oxygen double bond). They are considered "simple" because they do not have reactive groups like −OH or −Cl attached directly to the carbon atom in the carbonyl group, as in carboxylic acids containing −COOH.[1] Many ketones are known and many are of great importance in industry and in biology. Examples include many sugars (ketoses) and the industrial solvent acetone, which is the smallest ketone. Nomenclature and etymology[edit] The word ketone is derived from Aketon, an old German word for acetone.[2][3] According to the rules of IUPAC nomenclature, ketones are named by changing the suffix -ane of the parent alkane to -anone. The position of the carbonyl group is usually denoted by a number. For the most important ketones, however, traditional nonsystematic names are still generally used, for example acetone and benzophenone. These nonsystematic names are considered retained IUPAC names,[4] although some introductory chemistry textbooks use systematic names such as "2-propanone" or "propan-2-one" for the simplest ketone (CH3−CO−CH3) instead of "acetone". The common names of ketones are obtained by writing separately the names of the two alkyl groups attached to the carbonyl group, followed by "ketone" as a separate word. The names of the alkyl groups are written alphabetically. When the two alkyl groups are the same, the prefix di- is added before the name of alkyl group. The positions of other groups are indicated by Greek letters, the α-carbon being th Continue reading >>

Formation Of Hydrates

Formation Of Hydrates

Voiceover: Here's an example of a nucleophilic addition reaction to an aldehyde or a ketone. So over here on the left, it could be an aldehyde, or we could change that to form a ketone. And if you add water to an aldehyde or ketone, you form this product over here on the right, which is called a hydrate, or also called a gem-diol, or geminal diol because these two OHs here are on the same carbon, so like they're twins. And this reaction is at equilibrium. So let's think about the aldehyde, or the ketone. We know the carbonyl on the aldehyde or ketone is polarized, so we know that the oxygen has more electronegatives than carbons, so it withdraws some electron densities. So this oxygen here is partially negative, and this carbonyl carbon is partially positive, like that. And therefore the carbonyl carbon, since it's partially positive, is electrophillic, so it wants electrons. And it can get electrons from water. So let's go ahead and draw the water molecule right here. Water can function as a nucleophile. It has two lone pairs of electrons, this oxygen here is partially negative, and so we're going to get a nucleophile attacking our electrophile. So a lone pair of electrons on the oxygen is going to attack our carbonyl carbon like that, So the nucleophile attacks the electrophillic portion of the molecule, and these pi electrons here kick off onto the oxygen. So let's go ahead and draw the results of our nucleophilic attack here, and so we now have our oxygen bonded to this carbon, and this oxygen still has two hydrogens bonded to it, so I'm gonna go ahead and draw in those two hydrogens. There's still a lone pair of electrons on that oxygen, which gives that oxygen a +1 formal charge. And then this carbon here is bonded to another oxygen, which had two lone pairs of el Continue reading >>

Preparation Of Ketones Using Various Methods

Preparation Of Ketones Using Various Methods

Preparation of ketones: Ketones are the organic compound containing carbonyl groups (C=O). The general formula for a ketone is R(C=O)R’, where R and R’ can be alkyl or aryl groups. They are classified into two categories by their substituents: symmetrical ketones (when two identical groups are attached to the carbonyl group) and asymmetrical ketones (when two different groups are appended to the carbonyl group). Many methods exist for the preparation of ketones at industrial scale and in laboratories. Standard methods include oxidation of alcohol, hydrocarbons, etc. Some general methods for the preparation of ketones are explained below: Preparation of ketones from acyl chlorides: Acyl chlorides upon treatment with Grignard reagent and a metal halide, yields ketones. For example: when cadmium chloride is reacted with the Grignard reagent, dialkyl cadmium is formed. Dialkylcadmium thus formed is further reacted with acyl chlorides to form ketones. Preparation of ketones from nitriles: Treatment of nitriles with Grignard reagent upon further hydrolysis yields ketones. Preparation of ketones from benzenes or substituted benzenes: Electrophilic aromatic substitution of a benzene ring with acid chlorides in the presence of a Lewis acid such as AlCl3 results in the formation of ketones. This reaction is popularly known as Friedel Craft’s acylation reaction. Preparation of ketones by dehydrogenation of alcohols: Dehydrogenation of alcohol is a reaction in which two hydrogen molecules are removed from an alcohol molecule upon oxidation. During oxidation of alcohol both C-O and O-H bonds are broken for the formation of C=O bonds. Secondary alcohols in the presence of strong oxidizing agents undergo dehydrogenation to produce ketones. For example: when vapours of secondary Continue reading >>

1. Nomenclature Of Aldehydes And Ketones

1. Nomenclature Of Aldehydes And Ketones

Aldehydes and ketones are organic compounds which incorporate a carbonyl functional group, C=O. The carbon atom of this group has two remaining bonds that may be occupied by hydrogen or alkyl or aryl substituents. If at least one of these substituents is hydrogen, the compound is an aldehyde. If neither is hydrogen, the compound is a ketone. The IUPAC system of nomenclature assigns a characteristic suffix to these classes, al to aldehydes and one to ketones. For example, H2C=O is methanal, more commonly called formaldehyde. Since an aldehyde carbonyl group must always lie at the end of a carbon chain, it is by default position #1, and therefore defines the numbering direction. A ketone carbonyl function may be located anywhere within a chain or ring, and its position is given by a locator number. Chain numbering normally starts from the end nearest the carbonyl group. In cyclic ketones the carbonyl group is assigned position #1, and this number is not cited in the name, unless more than one carbonyl group is present. If you are uncertain about the IUPAC rules for nomenclature you should review them now. Examples of IUPAC names are provided (in blue) in the following diagram. Common names are in red, and derived names in black. In common names carbon atoms near the carbonyl group are often designated by Greek letters. The atom adjacent to the function is alpha, the next removed is beta and so on. Since ketones have two sets of neighboring atoms, one set is labeled α, β etc., and the other α', β' etc. Very simple ketones, such as propanone and phenylethanone (first two examples in the right column), do not require a locator number, since there is only one possible site for a ketone carbonyl function. Likewise, locator numbers are omitted for the simple dialdehyde at t Continue reading >>

Organic Chemistry/ketones And Aldehydes

Organic Chemistry/ketones And Aldehydes

Aldehydes () and ketones () are both carbonyl compounds. They are organic compounds in which the carbonyl carbon is connected to C or H atoms on either side. An aldehyde has one or both vacancies of the carbonyl carbon satisfied by a H atom, while a ketone has both its vacancies satisfied by carbon. 3 Preparing Aldehydes and Ketones Ketones are named by replacing the -e in the alkane name with -one. The carbon chain is numbered so that the ketone carbon, called the carbonyl group, gets the lowest number. For example, would be named 2-butanone because the root structure is butane and the ketone group is on the number two carbon. Alternatively, functional class nomenclature of ketones is also recognized by IUPAC, which is done by naming the substituents attached to the carbonyl group in alphabetical order, ending with the word ketone. The above example of 2-butanone can also be named ethyl methyl ketone using this method. If two ketone groups are on the same structure, the ending -dione would be added to the alkane name, such as heptane-2,5-dione. Aldehydes replace the -e ending of an alkane with -al for an aldehyde. Since an aldehyde is always at the carbon that is numbered one, a number designation is not needed. For example, the aldehyde of pentane would simply be pentanal. The -CH=O group of aldehydes is known as a formyl group. When a formyl group is attached to a ring, the ring name is followed by the suffix "carbaldehyde". For example, a hexane ring with a formyl group is named cyclohexanecarbaldehyde. Aldehyde and ketone polarity is characterized by the high dipole moments of their carbonyl group, which makes them rather polar molecules. They are more polar than alkenes and ethers, though because they lack hydrogen, they cannot participate in hydrogen bonding like Continue reading >>

Production And Metabolism Of Non-esterified Fatty Acids

Production And Metabolism Of Non-esterified Fatty Acids

Lipolysis of fat stored as triglycerides in adipose tissue occurs in response to increasing energy demands that cannot be adequately supplied by glucose. Hormones, such as glucagon, catecholamines, ACTH, corticosteroids and growth hormone, stimulate hormone-sensitive lipase, whereas insulin inhibits this enzyme. Lipolysis of triglycerides releases NEFAs (which are usually long-chain fatty acids) and glycerol. Glycerol is taken up by cells and used for glucose production or can be used to re-form triglycerides. NEFAs are water-insoluble and are transported bound to albumin. Once taken up by hepatocytes, NEFAs are esterified. The esterified fatty acids then have several fates: 1) They can recombine with glycerol to form triglycerides, which are packaged into VLDL. The VLDL are exported from the liver or (if produced in excess) are stored as fat within the hepatocyte (eventually causing lipidosis). 2) They can enter the mitochondria (in a reaction that requires carnitine) and be used for energy production (through the Kreb’s cycle) or ketone formation. Within the mitochondria, esterified fatty acids undergo β-oxidation to acetyl CoA. Acetyl CoA combines with oxaloacetate in the Kreb’s cycle (tricarboxylic acid cycle) to form citrate. Continued oxidation in this cycle leads to energy (ATP) production. If oxaloacetate supplies are low (oxaloacetate is used as a substrate for gluconeogenesis in states of negative energy balance), acetyl CoA is then used to form ketones. Continue reading >>
