Sheet1 Page 1 Chapter 3: Organic Compounds: Alkanes and their Stereochemistry 3.1 Functional Groups alkene: C=C alkyne: carbon-carbon triple bond arene: aromatic ring alkyl halide: carbon bonded to a halogen alcohol: C-O ether: C-O-C phosphate: R-PO4 amine: C-N thiol: C-SH sulfide: C-S-C disulfide: C-S-S-C aldehyde: terminal C=O ketone: internal C=O carboxylic acid: COOH ester: ether version of carboxylic acid thioester: sulfide version of carboxylic acid amide: nitrogen version of carboxylic acid nitrile: carbon triple bonded to nitrogen nitro: carbon bonded to a positive nitrogen bonded to two oxygens 3.2 Alkanes and Alkane Isomers Isomers: compounds that have the same numbers and kinds of atoms but differ in the way the atoms are arranged constitutional isomers: differ in order of connectivity, branching, etc. (different properties) 3.3 Alkyl Groups 3.4 Naming Alkanes Prefix-Locant-Parent-Suffix 1. find the parent hydrocarbon a. use the longest continuous chain b. if two of equal length are present, chose the one with the largest number of branch points

Unformatted text preview: 2. Number the atoms in the chain 3. Identify and number the substituents 3.5 Properties of Alkanes Sheet1 Page 2 not very reactive- need extreme conditions (free radicals): heat, peroxides, or UV radiation 3.6 Conformations of Ethane/ 3.7 Conformations of Other Alkanes torsional strain: associated with eclipsing interactions steric strain: two electron clouds too close together Anti Conformation: staggered to give least steric strain, 180 degrees Gauche Conformation: local energy minima, 60 degrees Stereoisomers: no change in connectivity Confomational Isomers: different energy due to bond rotation Angle strain: expansion or compression of the angle away from the ideal (rings) chair conformation of cyclohexane eliminates angle strain, torsional strain, and steric strain 1,3-diaxial interactions: sterics ring flips: a functional group switches from axial to equatorial or vice-versa...
