2 The α Position The carbon next to the carbonyl group is designated as being in the α position Electrophilic substitution occurs at this position through either an enol or enolate ion

3 Why this Chapter? Many schemes make use of carbonyl a- substitution reactions. These reaction are one the few general methods for making C-C bonds.

4 22.1 Keto–Enol Tautomerism A carbonyl compound with a hydrogen atom on its a carbon rapidly equilibrates with its corresponding enol Compounds that differ only by the position of a moveable proton are called tautomers

5 Tautomers Are Not Resonance Forms Tautomers are structural isomers Resonance forms are representations of contributors to a single structure Tautomers interconvert rapidly while ordinary isomers do not

6 Enols The enol tautomer is usually present to a very small extent and cannot be isolated However, since it is formed rapidly, it can serve as a reaction intermediate

7 Acid Catalysis of Enolization Brønsted acids catalyze keto-enol tautomerization by protonating the carbonyl and activating the α protons

8 Base Catalysis of Enolization Brønsted bases catalyze keto-enol tautomerization The hydrogens on the α carbon are weakly acidic and transfer to water is slow In the reverse direction there is also a barrier to the addition of the proton from water to enolate carbon
