Chapter 6 2 Classes of Halides Alkyl : Halogen, X, is directly bonded to sp 3 carbon. Vinyl : X is bonded to sp 2 carbon of alkene. Aryl : X is bonded to sp 2 carbon on benzene ring. C H H H C H H Br alkyl halide C C H H H Cl vinyl halide I aryl halide

Chapter 6 3 Polarity and Reactivity Halogens are more electronegative than C. Carbon-halogen bond is polar, so carbon has partial positive charge. Carbon can be attacked by a nucleophile. Halogen can leave with the electron pair.

Chapter 6 10 Uses of Alkyl Halides Solvents - degreasers and dry cleaning fluid Reagents for synthesis of other compounds Anesthetic : Halothane is CF 3 CHClBr CHCl 3 used originally (toxic and carcinogenic) Freons , chlorofluorocarbons or CFC’s Freon 12, CF 2 Cl 2 , now replaced with Freon 22, CF 2 CHCl, not as harmful to the ozone layer. Pesticides - DDT banned in the U.S .

Chapter 6 11 Dipole Moments μ = 4.8 x δ x d , where δ is the charge (proportional to EN) and d is the distance (bond length) in Angstroms. Electronegativities: F > Cl > Br > I Bond lengths: C-F < C-Cl < C-Br < C-I Bond dipoles: C-Cl > C-F > C-Br > C-I Dipole moments 1.56 D 1.51 D 1.48 D 1.29 D Molecular dipoles depend on shape , too!
