McMurry Organic Chemistry 6th edition Chapter 5 2 5.1 Kinds of Organic Reactions In general, we look at what occurs and try to learn how it happens Common patterns describe the changes Addition reactions – two molecules combine Elimination reactions – one molecule splits into two Substitution – parts from two molecules exchange Rearrangement reactions – a molecule undergoes changes in the way its atoms are connected

McMurry Organic Chemistry 6th edition Chapter 5 3 5.2 How Organic Reactions Occur: Mechanisms In a clock the hands move but the mechanism behind the face is what causes the movement In an organic reaction, we see the transformation that has occurred. The mechanism describes the steps behind the changes that we can observe Reactions occur in defined steps that lead from reactant to product

McMurry Organic Chemistry 6th edition Chapter 5 4 Steps in Mechanisms We classify the types of steps in a sequence A step involves either the formation or breaking of a covalent bond Steps can occur in individually or in combination with other steps When several steps occur at the same time they are said to be concerted

McMurry Organic Chemistry 6th edition Chapter 5 10 Indicating Steps in Mechanisms Curved arrows indicate breaking and forming of bonds Arrowheads with a “half” head (“fish-hook”) indicate homolytic and homogenic steps (called ‘radical processes’) Arrowheads with a complete head indicate heterolytic and heterogenic steps (called ‘polar processes’)
