Chem 215 F07 Notes – Dr. Masato Koreeda - Page 1 of 4. Date: September 24, 2007 Chapter 14 Aldehydes and Ketones: Addition Reactions at Electrophilic Carbons Overview of Chapter 14 1. Structures of aldehydes and ketones C R R' O R, R' = alkyl, aryl: ketones R = alkyl, aryl; R' = H: aldehydes ! ! electrophilic C Aldehyde C=O carbons are less sterically hindered and more electrophilic compared with the corresponding ketone carbons (i.e., with the same R) lone pair: more basic than C=O " 2. Reactions of aldehydes and ketones with an electrophile and a nucleophile C R' R O !" framework lone pairs all of these sigma-bonds and lone pairs on the same plane El + with this trajectory # -bonding Highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) C R' R O empty anti-bonding orbitals Lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) Nu: trajectory of a nucleophile approach trajectory angle of 107° C R' R O Nu C R' R O Nu sp 3 between sp 2 and sp 3 ; on its way to sp 3 C R R' O El all atoms including El on the same plane 3. Activation of RR’C=Z (Z = O and N) with H-A or a Lewis acid activates C=O toward a nucleophilic addition O O H A becomes even more ! ; i.e., more electrophilic O H A H A Lewis acid (L.A.) O L.A.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
