184 CHAPTER 6 The Reactions of Alkynes An Introduction to Multistep Synthesis Important Terms acetylide ion the conjugate base of a terminal alkyne RC C aldehyde a compound with a carbonyl group that is bonded to an alkyl group and to a hydrogen (or bonded to two hydrogens). O C R H or O C H H alkylation reaction a reaction that adds an alkyl group to a reactant. alkyne a hydrocarbon that contains a triple bond. carbonyl group a carbon doubly bonded to an oxygen. O C enol an , -unsaturated alcohol. OH C geminal dihalide a compound with two halogen atoms bonded to the same carbon. internal alkyne an alkyne with its triple bond not at the end of the carbon chain. keto-enol tautomers a ketone and its isomeric , -unsaturated alcohol. O CR RCH 2 keto enol RCH CR OH ketone a compound with a carbonyl group that is bonded to two alkyl groups. O C R R -complex a complex formed between an electrophile and a triple bond. polymer a large molecule made by linking up many small molecules called monomers. radical anion a species with a negative charge and an unpaired electron. Chapter 6 185 retrosynthetic analysis working backward (on paper) from a target molecule to available starting or materials. retrosynthesis tautomerization interconversion of tautomers. tautomers isomers that are in rapid equilibrium. The keto and enol tautomers differ in the location of a double bond and a hydrogen. terminal alkyne an alkyne with its triple bond at the end of the carbon chain. vinylic cation a compound with a positive charge on a vinylic carbon. vinylic radical a compound with an unpaired electron on a vinylic carbon. 186 Chapter 6 Solutions to Problems 1. The molecular formula of a noncyclic hydrocarbon with 14 carbons and no bonds is 14 30 2 +2 C H (C H ) n n . Because a compound has two fewer hydrogens for every ring and bond, a compound with one ring and 4 bonds (2 triple bonds) would have 10 fewer hydrogens than the 2 +2 C H n n formula. Thus, the molecular formula is 14 20 C H . 2. a. 2 2 2 3 ClCH CH C CCH CH c. CH 3 CHC CH 3 CH e. HC CCH 2 CCH 3 CH 3 CH 3 b. d. 2 HC CCH Cl f. 3 3 CH C CCH 3.
