2 Alkene - Hydrocarbon With Carbon-Carbon Double Bond Also called an olefin but alkene is better Includes many naturally occurring materials Flavors, fragrances, vitamins

3 Why this Chapter? C-C double bonds are present in most organic and biological molecules To examine consequences of alkene stereoisomerism To focus on general alkene reaction: electrophilic addition

4 6.1 Industrial Preparation and Use of Alkenes Ethylene and propylene are the most important organic chemicals produced

5 6.2 Calculating Degree of Unsaturation Relates molecular formula to possible structures Degree of unsaturation : number of multiple bonds or rings Formula for a saturated acyclic compound is C n H 2n+2 Each ring or multiple bond replaces 2 H's

6 Example: C 6 H 10 Saturated is C 6 H 14 Therefore 4 H's are not present This has two degrees of unsaturation Two double bonds? or triple bond? or two rings or ring and double bond

7 Degree of Unsaturation With Other Elements Organohalogens (X: F, Cl, Br, I) Halogen replaces hydrogen C 4 H 6 Br 2 and C 4 H 8 have one degree of unsaturation Organoxygen compounds (C,H,O) - if connected by single bonds These don't affect the total count of H's

8 Organonitrogen compounds Nitrogen has three bonds So if it connects where H was, it adds a connection point Subtract one H for equivalent degree of unsaturation in hydrocarbon

9 Count pairs of H's below C n H 2n+2 Add number of halogens to number of H's (X equivalent to H) Ignore oxygens (oxygen links H) Subtract N's - they have two connections Summary - Degree of Unsaturation
