Aldehydes & Ketones: Reaction Mechanisms

Aldehydes & Ketones: Reaction Mechanisms

In this lesson we will look at reactions that aldehydes and ketones under-go. These reaction include oxidation into carboxylic acids, reduction into alcohols, and forming cyanohydrin. Aldehydes and Ketones What is the difference between honey and table sugar? On a chemical level their structures are very similar. A single molecule has the same number of hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen atoms. The major difference is that honey contains more ketones (in the form of fructose) while table sugar contains more aldehydes (in the form of glucose). We can see, based on this observation, that a ketone and aldehyde, while similar, can react in different ways. A ketone and aldehyde both contain a carbonyl (a carbon double bonded to an oxygen). Yet a ketone has that carbonyl attached to two R-groups (which is simply a chain of carbons). While an aldehyde has that carbonyl at the terminating carbon, so the carbon is attached on one side to an R-group but the other side only has a hydrogen. It might help you to remember his difference by noticing that the word 'aldehyde' has an 'h' in it, which you can think of as standing for hydrogen. Oxidation to Carboxylic Acids The hydrogen on the carbonyl is important to the oxidation reaction to make carboxylic acids. Therefore, we are able to oxidize an aldehyde but we cannot oxidize a ketone, as it has no hydrogen in its structure. Aldehydes can react with many different compounds in order to form carboxylic acids. These can be chromium reagents with a positive 6 informal charge - such as CrO3. If the R-group on the aldehyde has another alcohol on it, then the chromium reagents will also oxidize that alcohol group. When the aldehydes react with one of these compounds, another oxygen gets added onto the carbonyl which forms a carboxylic acid. Feh Continue reading >>

Chapter 16: Aldehydes And Ketones (carbonyl Compounds)

The Carbonyl Double Bond Both the carbon and oxygen atoms are hybridized sp2, so the system is planar. The three oxygen sp2 AO’s are involved as follows: The two unshared electorn pairs of oxygen occupy two of these AO’s, and the third is involved in sigma bond formation to the carbonyl carbon. The three sp2 AO’s on the carbonyl carbon are involved as follows: One of them is involved in sigma bonding to one of the oxygen sp2 AO’s, and the other two are involved in bonding to the R substituents. The 2pz AO’s on oxygen and the carbonyl carbon are involved in pi overlap, forming a pi bond. The pi BMO, formed by positive overlap of the 2p orbitals, has a larger concentration of electron density on oxygen than carbon, because the electrons in this orbital are drawn to the more electronegative atom, where they are more highly stabilized. This result is reversed in the vacant antibonding MO. As a consequence of the distribution in the BMO, the pi bond (as is the case also with the sigma bond) is highly polar, with the negative end of the dipole on oxygen and the positive end on carbon. We will see that this polarity, which is absent in a carbon-carbon pi bond, has the effect of strongly stabilizing the C=O moiety. Resonance Treatment of the Carbonyl Pi Bond 1.Note that the ionic structure (the one on the right side) has one less covalent bond, but this latter is replaced with an ionic bond (electrostatic bond). 2.This structure is a relatively “good” one, therefore, and contributes extensively to the resonance hybrid, making this bond much more thermodynamically stable than the C=C pi bond, for which the corresponding ionic structure is much less favorable (negative charge is less stable on carbon than on oxygen). 3.The carbonyl carbon therefore has extensive car Continue reading >>

Properties Of Aldehydes And Ketones

This page explains what aldehydes and ketones are, and looks at the way their bonding affects their reactivity. It also considers their simple physical properties such as solubility and boiling points. Aldehydes and ketones are simple compounds which contain a carbonyl group - a carbon-oxygen double bond. They are simple in the sense that they don't have other reactive groups like -OH or -Cl attached directly to the carbon atom in the carbonyl group - as you might find, for example, in carboxylic acids containing -COOH. Aldehydes In aldehydes, the carbonyl group has a hydrogen atom attached to it together with either a second hydrogen atom or, more commonly, a hydrocarbon group which might be an alkyl group or one containing a benzene ring. For the purposes of this section, we shall ignore those containing benzene rings. Notice that these all have exactly the same end to the molecule. All that differs is the complexity of the other group attached. When you are writing formulae for these, the aldehyde group (the carbonyl group with the hydrogen atom attached) is always written as -CHO - never as COH. That could easily be confused with an alcohol. Ethanal, for example, is written as CH3CHO; methanal as HCHO. The name counts the total number of carbon atoms in the longest chain - including the one in the carbonyl group. If you have side groups attached to the chain, notice that you always count from the carbon atom in the carbonyl group as being number 1. Ketones In ketones, the carbonyl group has two hydrocarbon groups attached. Again, these can be either alkyl groups or ones containing benzene rings. Again, we'll concentrated on those containing alkyl groups just to keep things simple. Notice that ketones never have a hydrogen atom attached to the carbonyl group. Propano Continue reading >>

A Simple Formula For 7 Important Aldehyde/ketone Reactions

A Simple Formula For 7 Important Aldehyde/ketone Reactions

Here’s one thing you’re going to learn about reactions of aldehydes and ketones. There’s a LOT of repetition in the mechanism. You’ll see this in more detail soon, but let’s get a taste of how things work. Imagine you’re a guitar player. And someone tells you that you need to learn how to play 14 songs… ASAP. Sounds scary, right? But what if you then found that each of these songs had the exact same sequence of chords, and only differed in their lyrics? That’s a lot easier. We’re going to go through 14 reactions in this post. BUT… before you run away screaming… it’s really just ONE reaction… that works on both aldehydes and ketones… that has seven different variants. That sounds a lot simpler, right? All of the following reactions listed here proceed through the exact same sequence: Addition of nucleophile to the carbonyl carbon. Protonation of the oxygen. The reactions are the following: Grignard reaction Addition of organolithiums Reduction of aldehydes and ketones with NaBH4 and LiAlH4 Addition of (-)CN to give cyanohydrins This works for both aldehydes and ketones (even though just aldehydes are shown here). Apologies – big image. All we’re doing here is changing the identity of the nucleophile! It’s like having a formula, and all we’re doing is plugging a different nucleophile into the formula. Do you see how knowing the mechanisms here is going to make your life much easier? Because instead of having to keep track of 14 different reactions (7 different nucleophiles with aldehydes or ketones) you’re really just learning ONE reaction, with 7 different nucleophiles and two variants (aldehydes/ketones). Thanks for reading! James Organic Chemistry 2 builds on the concepts from Org 1 and introduces a lot of new reactions. Here is an Continue reading >>

Name Reactions Fukuyama Coupling Grignard Reaction Grignard Reaction Seebach Umpolung Stetter Synthesis Recent Literature Carboxylic acids were converted directly in good yields into ketones using excess alkyl cyanocuprates (R2CuLi•LiCN). A substrate with a stereocenter α to the carboxylic acid was converted with very little loss of enantiomeric purity. A variety of functional groups were tolerated including aryl bromides. This direct transformation involves a relatively stable copper ketal tetrahedral intermediate. D. T Genna, G. H. Posner, Org. Lett., 2011, 13, 5358-5361. Unsymmetrical dialkyl ketones can be prepared by the nickel-catalyzed reductive coupling of carboxylic acid chlorides or (2-pyridyl)thioesters with alkyl iodides or benzylic chlorides. Various functional groups are tolerated, including common nitrogen protecting groups and C-B bonds. Even hindered ketones flanked by tertiary and secondary centers can be formed. A. C. Wotal, D. J. Weix, Org. Lett., 2012, 14, 1363-1365. N-acylazetidines are bench-stable, readily available amide acylating reagents, in which the reactivity is controlled by amide pyramidalization and strain of the four-membered ring. A general and highly chemoselective synthesis of ketones by the addition of organometallics to N-acylazetidines via stable tetrahedral intermediates offers wide substrate scope and exquisite selectivity for the ketone products. C. Liu, M. Achtenhagen, M. Szostak, Org. Lett., 2016, 18, 2375-2378.

Reduction Of Aldehydes And Ketones

Reduction Of Aldehydes And Ketones

This page looks at the reduction of aldehydes and ketones by two similar reducing agents - lithium tetrahydridoaluminate(III) (also known as lithium aluminium hydride) and sodium tetrahydridoborate(III) (sodium borohydride). Background to the reactions The reducing agents Despite the fearsome names, the structures of the two reducing agents are very simple. In each case, there are four hydrogens ("tetrahydido") around either aluminium or boron in a negative ion (shown by the "ate" ending). The "(III)" shows the oxidation state of the aluminium or boron, and is often left out because these elements only ever show the +3 oxidation state in their compounds. To make the names shorter, that's what I shall do for the rest of this page. Note: It isn't important as far as the current page is concerned, but if you want to understand more about oxidation states (oxidation numbers), you will find them explained if you follow this link. Use the BACK button on your browser to return to this page. The formulae of the two compounds are LiAlH4 and NaBH4. Their structures are: In each of the negative ions, one of the bonds is a co-ordinate covalent (dative covalent) bond using the lone pair on a hydride ion (H-) to form a bond with an empty orbital on the aluminium or boron. Note: Follow this link if you aren't happy about co-ordinate covalent (dative covalent) bonding. Use the BACK button on your browser to return to this page.

Reagents For Modifying Aldehydes And Ketones—section 3.3

Reagents For Modifying Aldehydes And Ketones—section 3.3

Aldehydes and ketones are present in a number of low molecular weight molecules such as drugs, steroid hormones, reducing sugars and metabolic intermediates (e.g., pyruvate and α-ketoglutarate). Except for polysaccharides containing free reducing sugars, however, biopolymers generally lack aldehyde and ketone groups. Even those aldehydes and ketones that are found in the open-ring form of simple carbohydrates are usually in equilibrium with the closed-ring form of the sugar. The infrequent occurrence of aldehydes and ketones in biomolecules has stimulated the development of techniques to selectively introduce these functional groups, thus providing unique sites for chemical modification and greatly extending the applications of the probes found in this section. Fluorescent modification of aldehyde or carboxylic acid groups in carbohydrates is also frequently utilized for their analysis by HPLC, capillary electrophoresis and other methods. Periodate Oxidation The most common method for introducing aldehydes and ketones into polysaccharides and glycoproteins (including antibodies) is by periodate-mediated oxidation of vicinal diols. These introduced aldehydes and ketones can then be modified with fluorescent or biotinylated hydrazine, hydroxylamine or amine derivatives to label the polysaccharide or glycoprotein. For example, some of the hydrazine derivatives described in this section have been used to detect periodate-oxidized glycoproteins in gels. The Pro-Q Emerald 300 and Pro-Q Emerald 488 Glycoprotein Gel and Blot Stain Kits (P21855, P21857, M33307; Detecting Protein Modifications—Section 9.4) are based on periodate oxidation of glycoproteins and subsequent labeling with a Pro-Q Emerald dye. Periodate oxidation of the 3'-terminal ribose provides one of the few met Continue reading >>

Tautomerism

Tautomerism

If an aldehyde possesses at least one hydrogen atom on the carbon atom adjacent to the carbonyl group, called the alpha (α) carbon, this hydrogen can migrate to the oxygen atom of the carbonyl group. The double bond then migrates to the α-carbon. As a result, a carbonyl compound with an α-hydrogen can exist in two isomeric forms, called tautomers. In the keto form, the hydrogen is bonded to the α-carbon, while in the enol form it is bonded to the carbonyl oxygen with the migration of the double bond. The name enol is derived from the IUPAC designation of it as both an alkene (-ene) and an alcohol (-ol). Keto and enol isomers exist in equilibrium in which both tautomers are present but, in simple cases, the keto form is much more stable than the enol form. In acetaldehyde, for example, only about 6 of every 10 million molecules are in the enol form at any given time. Nevertheless, the equilibrium always exists, and every molecule of acetaldehyde (as well as any other aldehyde or ketone with an α-hydrogen) is converted to the enol form (and back again) several times per second. This is an important characteristic because a number of reactions of carbonyl compounds take place only through the enol forms. Certain carbonyl compounds have a much higher percentage of its molecules in the enol form, however. Because aldehydes are important building blocks in organic chemistry, they are used to synthesize many other compounds, and there are also many ways to prepare them. Oxidation is among the principal methods. Primary alcohols can be oxidized to aldehydes (RCH2OH → RCHO, where R is an alkyl or aryl group). This is generally not easy to do, because most reagents that oxidize primary alcohols to aldehydes will oxidize the aldehyde further to a carboxylic acid. To produce 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 >>

Shake vigorously, and, if no precipitate forms immediately, allow the solution to stand for 15 minutes. The 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine reagent will already be prepared for you. Positive test Formation of a precipitate is a positive test. Complications Some ketones give oils which will not solidify. Some allylic alcohols are oxidized by the reagent to aldehydes and give a positive test. Some alcohols, if not purified, may contain aldehyde or ketone impurities. Tollen’s Test for Aldehydes Aldehyde Standards Cyclohexanone and Benzaldehyde Procedure Add one drop or a few crystals of unknown to 1 mL of the freshly prepared Tollens reagent. Gentle heating can be employed if no reaction is immediately observed. Tollens reagent: Into a test tube which has been cleaned with 3M sodium hydroxide, place 2 mL of 0.2 M silver nitrate solution, and add a drop of 3M sodium hydroxide. Add 2.8% ammonia solution, drop by drop, with constant shaking, until almost all of the precipitate of silver oxide dissolves. Don't use more than 3 mL of ammonia. Then dilute the entire solution to a final volume of 10 mL with water. Positive Test Formation of silver mirror or a black precipitate is a positive test. Complications The test tube must be clean and oil-free if a silver mirror is to be observed. Easily oxidized compounds give a positive test. For example: aromatic amine and some phenols.

12.9: Reactions Of Aldehydes And Ketones With Alcohols

12.9: Reactions Of Aldehydes And Ketones With Alcohols

In this organic chemistry topic, we shall see how alcohols (R-OH) add to carbonyl groups. Carbonyl groups are characterized by a carbon-oxygen double bond. The two main functional groups that consist of this carbon-oxygen double bond are Aldehydes and Ketones. Introduction It has been demonstrated that water adds rapidly to the carbonyl function of aldehydes and ketones to form geminal-diol. In a similar reaction alcohols add reversibly to aldehydes and ketones to form hemiacetals (hemi, Greek, half). This reaction can continue by adding another alcohol to form an acetal. Hemiacetals and acetals are important functional groups because they appear in sugars. To achieve effective hemiacetal or acetal formation, two additional features must be implemented. First, an acid catalyst must be used because alcohol is a weak nucleophile; and second, the water produced with the acetal must be removed from the reaction by a process such as a molecular sieves or a Dean-Stark trap. The latter is important, since acetal formation is reversible. Indeed, once pure hemiacetal or acetals are obtained they may be hydrolyzed back to their starting components by treatment with aqueous acid and an excess of water. Acetals are geminal-diether derivatives of aldehydes or ketones, formed by reaction with two equivalents (or an excess amount) of an alcohol and elimination of water. Ketone derivatives of this kind were once called ketals, but modern usage has dropped that term. It is important to note that a hemiacetal is formed as an intermediate during the formation of an acetal. Mechanism for Hemiacetal and Acetal Formation The mechanism shown here applies to both acetal and hemiacetal formation 1) Protonation of the carbonyl 2) Nucleophilic attack by the alcohol 3) Deprotonation to form a hemi Continue reading >>

The Silver Mirror Test

The Silver Mirror Test

An exciting test to differentiate between aldose and ketose sugars Bernhard Christian Gottfried Tollens (1841-1918) was a German chemist whose name has been recognised through the silver mirror test using Tollens' reagent. He developed this test to differentiate between aldose and ketose sugars. Tollens' reagent is an alkaline solution of ammoniacal silver nitrate and is used to test for aldehydes. Silver ions in the presence of hydroxide ions come out of solution as a brown precipitate of silver(I) oxide, Ag2O(s). This precipitate dissolves in aqueous ammonia, forming the diamminesilver(I) ion, [Ag(NH3)2]+. Ketones do not react with Tollens' reagent. 2Ag+ (aq) + 2OH- (aq) Ag2 O(s) + H2 O(l) Ag2 O(s) + 4NH3 (aq) + H2 O(l) 2[Ag(NH3)2]+ (aq) + 2OH- (aq) The practical instructions and safety information for this experiment have been replaced with the updated version on the Learn Chemistry website. Adding the ammonia to the silver nitrate solution makes the silver ion less susceptible to reduction, which produces silver in a more controlled manner. Ag+ + e-→ Ag E° = +0.799 V Ag(NH3)2+ + e-→ Ag + 2NH3E° = +0.373 V The half-equations indicate that ammonia forms a complex with the silver ion, which is more difficult to reduce than the silver ion. This is because silver ions form more stable complexes with NH3 than with water. If silver nitrate is used without ammonia, the silver ion is reduced so quickly that colloidal silver metal would appear. The solution would become a black, cloudy liquid. Basic conditions are necessary because glucose is oxidised more easily under basic conditions: RCHO + H2O → RCOOH + 2H+ + 2e- Tollens' reagent and other similar tests, eg Benedict's and Fehling's, will test for aldehydes but will not identify individual compounds. They all rely Continue reading >>
