Draw the structure of the organic product for the reaction between the following compound and the phosphorus ylide shown. Solution The phosphorus ylide will only react with the carbonyl group. Final product Comment: Think of the Wittig reaction as the reverse of oxidative cleavage of alkenes. Baeyer-Viliger Oxidation The Baeyer-Viliger oxidation is an organic reaction used to convert a ketone to an ester using a peroxyacid, with an “insertion” of one oxygen atom. • A peroxyacid can be prepared by reacting a carboxylic acid and hydrogen peroxide. RCOOH + H2O2 RCO3H + H2O • Peroxyacids serve as the oxidizing agent in the Baeyer-Viliger reaction. • For asymmetrical …show more content…
Carboxylic acids are stronger acids than peroxyacids. The negative charge on the oxygen atom of the carboxylate ion is extensively delocalized between two highly electronegative oxygen atoms; thus the conjugate base is resonance stabilized. Furthermore, the presence of two highly electronegative oxygen atoms will also exert a strong electron withdrawing inductive effect, leading to a more effective dispersal of the negative charge on the oxygen atom of the carboxylate ion. The negative charge on the conjugate base of the peroxyacid is not resonance stabilized. However, the presence of three highly electronegative oxygen atoms does exert a strong electron withdrawing inductive effect on the negative charge on the oxygen atom of the conjugate base. Nevertheless, the extent of negative charge dispersal is more effective for the carboxylate ion than for the conjugate base of a peroxyacid. Example 1 The acid dissociation constants, Ka, of four compounds are shown as follows. Explain the decreasing trend in acid strength of the four compounds. compound Ka/ mol dm-3 2-hydroxybenzoic acid 1.1 x …show more content…
N.B.: R refers to an electron-donating alkyl group. Aliphatic amines are more basic than phenylamines and phenylamines are more basic than amides. For aliphatic amines, the more R groups present, the stronger is the electron donating inductive effect. Thus, a tertiary amine is expected to be the most basic among the aliphatic amines. However, it isn’t. A tertiary amine is less basic than a secondary amine despite the former having three electron donating alkyl groups as compared to the latter’s two. This is because although the electron donating inductive effect is greater for the tertiary amine, the presence of three ‘bulky’ alkyl groups hinders its ability to donate its lone pair of electrons. For this particular example, the steric factor is more dominant than the electronic factor. For phenylamine, the lone pair of electrons on the N atom is delocalised in the benzene ring and hence renders them less available for coordination with a proton. For amides, the lone pair of electrons on the N atom is delocalized into the adjacent carbonyl group with a highly electronegative oxygen atom. Hence, amides are considered to be

At the time of conducting the experiment, the intention was to analyse the effect that an increase in catalase concentration had on the amount of oxygen (O2) produced if the hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) concentration was constant. It was proposed that when the catalase increases in concentration at the increments of 0.5%, 1%, 2%, and 4% and the hydrogen peroxide remained at a fixed concentration, the oxygen production would rise gradually. It was suggested that this would occur due to the collision theory ("BBC - GCSE Bitesize: Collision Theory") and the greater number of active sites thus an increase in accessibility allowing enzyme- substrate complex’s to be formed. According to the data gathered from the experiment, it can be implied that the hypothesis was supported as the data indicates an incline in oxygen
There are Sn1 and Sn2 substitution reactions. Sn1 reactions are unimolecular nucleophilic substitution reactions that are of the first order, whereas Sn2 reactions are bimolecular nucleophilic substitution of the second order.1 Molecules that contribute to a substitution reaction are called an ‘electrophile’ which contains the ‘leaving group’ which is the substituted group. It also contains a
Ishaan Sangwan Experiment 7: Grignard Reaction Discussion In this experiment, a Grignard reaction was performed to create a carbon-carbon bond, between a bromide and carbon dioxide. The product was then protonated to form a carboxylic acid, which was identified by obtaining its melting point, and by performing a titration with NaOH to obtain its molecular weight. In organometallic chemistry, carbon is bound to a metal.
In this experiment it is only focused on substitution reactions. “In a substitution reaction, an electron-rich species donates a pair of electrons to an electron poor species which forms a new product and a new base” (2). There are multiple types off substitution reactions and they are
Very strong oxidising agents would be needed to oxidise ketones. An example of an oxidising agent would be potassium manganate solution. When ketones are oxidised, the carbon-carbon bonds are broken. To reduce aldehydes and ketones, reducing agents would be used. Examples of reducing agents are, lithium tetrahydridoaluminate and sodium tetrahydridoborate.
Propylhexedrine is a TAAE1 agonist and targets two known proteins synaptic vesicular amine transporter and trace amine-associated receptor 1. Synaptic vesicular amine transporter is a protein that is involved in the ATP-dependent vesicular transport of biogenic amine neurotransmitters. Trace amine-associated receptor 1 is a receptor for trace amines. The drugs main method is as an alpha beta-adrenoceptor agonist, which causes
The better leaving group is Bromine. From the SN1 reactions, all alkyl bromides, with the exception of Bromobenzene, produced precipitates at room temperature. Although only the first tube in the SN2 reactions produced precipitate at room temperature, the back side attack happened where expected. It is notable, that in the SN¬2 reaction, eventually all alkyl bromides produced precipitate still with the exception prior.
The R-group (side chain) makes each amino acid unique. Some R-groups are acidic and some are basic. Some are polar, nonpolar, and may even contain large ring structures.
According to the principle of charge balance, there must be equal number of cationic and anionic (H+ and K+) species in the PBX solution. Fig. 5 show that the concentration of IC was maintained at 0 mg/L during the entire oxidation process, indicating that there is no CO32- and HCO3- in this solution. The ion
In this report we will discuss the rate in which catalase, a type of enzyme, reacts with hydrogen peroxide to create oxygen. We measured the rate that oxygen filled up a glass test tube filled with water, adding more catalase to the hydrogen peroxide to see if oxygen would be made faster.
They are best performed in polar protic solvents such as ethanol, which allows for further stabilization of the carbocation. Steric hindrance has the opposite effect on SN1 reactions than SN2 reactions; the steric hindrance carbon chain helps stabilize the carbocation and results in a high inductive effect. This is in terms of the attraction of the nucleophile for the carbocation. The stabilization of the carbocation is exemplified by substrate 5 which reacted immediately in the presence of ethanolic silver nitrate solution. Although substrates 6 and 7 are primary halides, the allylic and benzylic nature allows the pi bonds to create a more stable environment for the surrounding carbocation allowing for a faster reaction.
(no date)). Ionic bonds can be affected by changes in charge. These ionic bonds contribute to the enzymes tertiary and quaternary structure. The proteins configuration and activity would thereby be changed (Rodillas et al. (no
The area of chemistry that deals with the study of reaction rates and their mechanisms is called chemical kinetics. Chemical kinetics also helps to define the condition in which the reaction rate can be reformed. Temperature, concentration and catalysts are factors that are considered to affect the rate of a chemical reaction. In this experiment, the objectives are to measure the rate of the decomposition of H_2 O_2 (Hydrogen Peroxide), with the presence of the catalyst KI (Potassium Iodide), determine the kinetic order of both reactants, and find the calculations for the activation energy of the reaction. The pressure above a mixed solution of H_2 O_2 and KI with numerous concentrations and temperatures were observed over four different trials
