Chapter 17 Aldehydes and Ketones II: Aldol Reactions Acidity of the ! -Hydrogens of Carbonyl Compounds Hydrogens ! to the carbonyl group are much more acidic than ordinary aliphatic hydrogens that have pKa values > 50. C-C-R'' O = H R R' + H 2 O R-C-C-R'' O R' : - + H 3 O + Ka ~ 10 -20 pKa ~ 20

Stability of Enolate Anions The anion formed by loss of a proton ! to a carbonyl group is called an enolate anion because of a resonance structure that is the conjugate base of an enol. Enolate anions are stabilized by delocalization of the negative charge through an extended " -system. descriptions of an enolate anion R-C-C-R'' O = R' : - R-C=C-R'' : : :O: - R' resonance stabilization C C R' R O R'' - ! -delocalization

The Keto-Enol Tautomers and the Enolate Anion Protonation of the enolate anion can occur either at the oxygen or carbon atom since both carry partial negative charge. R-C-C-R'' O = R' : - R-C=C-R'' : : :O: - R' resonance structures of the enolate anion C C-R'' :O: R' R !" !" enolate anion
