McMurry Organic Chemistry 6th edition Chapter 6 2 Alkene - Hydrocarbon With Carbon- Carbon Double Bond Also called an olefin but alkene is better Includes many naturally occurring materials Flavors, fragrances, vitamins Important industrial products These are feedstocks for industrial processes

McMurry Organic Chemistry 6th edition Chapter 6 3 6.2 Degree of Unsaturation Relates molecular formula to possible structures Degree of unsaturation: number of multiple bonds or rings Formula for saturated a acyclic compound is C n H 2n+2 Each ring or multiple bond replaces 2 H's

McMurry Organic Chemistry 6th edition Chapter 6 4 Example: C 6 H 10 Saturated is C 6 H 14 Therefore 4 H's are not present This has two degrees of unsaturation Two double bonds? or triple bond? or two rings or ring and double bond

McMurry Organic Chemistry 6th edition Chapter 6 5 Degree of Unsaturation With Other Elements Organohalogens (X: F, Cl, Br, I) Halogen replaces hydrogen C 4 H 6 Br 2 and C 4 H 8 have one degree of unsaturation Oxygen atoms - if connected by single bonds These don't affect the total count of H's

McMurry Organic Chemistry 6th edition Chapter 6 7 If C-N Bonds Are Present Nitrogen has three bonds So if it connects where H was, it adds a connection point Subtract one H for equivalent degree of unsaturation in hydrocarbon

McMurry Organic Chemistry 6th edition Chapter 6 8 Count pairs of H's below CnH2n+2 Add number of halogens to number of H's (X equivalent to H) Don't count oxygens (oxygen links H) Subtract N's - they have two connections Summary - Degree of Unsaturation

McMurry Organic Chemistry 6th edition Chapter 6 11 6.4 Electronic Structure of Alkenes Carbon atoms in a double bond are sp 2 -hybridized Three equivalent orbitals at 120º separation in plane Fourth orbital is atomic p orbital Combination of electrons in two sp 2 orbitals of two atoms forms σ bond between them Additive interaction of p orbitals creates a π bonding orbital Subtractive interaction creates a π anti-bonding orbital Occupied π
