Lecture 13 Organic Chemistry Brief 8A Last time… -Addition reactions to alkenes and alkynes…. Alkenes HX Alkyl halide alcohol H 2 O/H + ROH/H+ ether H 2 alkane Alkyne 2 HX Pt/C H 2 Pt/C H 2 Lindlar Cat. alkene H 2 O/H + ketone Synthesis -Organic Reactions are important to allow to make things-- Such as drugs, cosmetics, plastics…. . --Alkenes and Alkynes are great starting materials for chemists to make new molecules-- can convert to alkyl halide, etc, and then do reactions to make larger molecules. --Nature also does a complex synthesis to support life --What are nature’s building blocks??
