Chapter 16-1 Chem 62 The Carbonyl group Carbonyl Group sp 3 hybridized, trigonal planar carbonyl carbon; partial positive C and partial negative (Lewis basic) oxygen. C O C O C O .. .. .. : : + δ δ + pi bond lone pairs : : Because of the polar C=O bond, boiling points are higher than nonpolar compounds of similar molecular weights. Aldehydes and ketones are capable of hydrogen bonding to water, alcohols and acids Spectral Properties Infrared: Ketones(C=O) 1660-1750 cm-1 shifted by 25 cm-1 if aromatic or unsaturated : PhCHO, CH 2 =CHCOCH 3 Adlehydes (C=O) 1700-1740 (C—H) 2850 1 H NMR R—C H O 9-10 ppm RC H 2 COR 2.0 - 2.6 ppm due to inductive deshielding C–O pi* is low-lying and therefore interacts well with high-lying filled-nonbonding orbitals: thus nucleophilic, not electrophilic addition reactions are charactersistic of carbonyl compounds.

Nu: C O R R C O R H C O H H increasing reactivity due to steric and electronic effects ketone aldehyde formaldehyde Ketones are more sterically hindered since they have two alkyl groups; aldehydes have one H and one alkyl group. Alkyl groups are electron releasing and make the C=O carbon less positive.
