4 8.1 Naming Alkynes General hydrocarbon rules apply with “- yne as a suffix indicating an alkyne Numbering of chain with triple bond is set so that the smallest number possible for the first carbon of the triple bond

5 8.2 Preparation of Alkynes: Elimination Reactions of Dihalides Treatment of a 1,2-dihalidoalkane with KOH or NaOH produces a two-fold elimination of HX Vicinal dihalides are available from addition of bromine or chlorine to an alkene Intermediate is a vinyl halide

7 Electronic Structure of Alkynes Carbon-carbon triple bond results from sp orbital on each C forming a sigma bond and unhybridized p X and p y orbitals forming π bonds. The remaining sp orbitals form bonds to other atoms at 180º to C-C triple bond. The bond is shorter and stronger than single or double Breaking a π bond in acetylene (HCCH) requires 318 kJ/mole (in ethylene it is 268 kJ/mole)

    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.
