Unformatted text preview: 1 Addition Addition Reactions Reactions of Alkenes of Alkenes Chapter 4 (pp. 147 Chapter 4 (pp. 147 –172) 172) Chapter Chapter 5 Chapter 7 (pp. 298 Chapter 7 (pp. 298 –314) 314) General Reactivity of C=C General Reactivity of C=C Electrons in π bond are loosely held. Electrophiles are attracted to the π electrons. Carbocation intermediate may form. Nucleophile then adds to the carbocation. Net result is addition to the double bond. C C R R Nu = + E ! + — X ! – C C R R X E R R R R 2 Paradox Paradox Understand the reaction outcome by developing a reaction mechanism 1-bromo-2-methylpropane 2-bromo-2-methylpropane H Br H Br ROOR H Br Br H Reaction Mechanism Reaction Mechanism Mechanism : step-by-step pathway of a reaction from Reactants to Products A reaction mechanism describes how a reaction occurs • which bonds are broken and which new ones are formed • the order and relative rates of the various bond- breaking and bond-forming steps • if in solution, the role of the solvent • if there is a catalyst, the role of a catalyst • the position of all atoms and energy of the entire system during the reaction 3 Why Mechanisms? Why Mechanisms? they are the framework within which to organize descriptive chemistry: • A precise sequence of steps. • ClassiFcation of each step as fast , slow , reversible , irreversible . Assignment of the preferred equilibrium position. • Elucidation of the transition state structures and their effect on rates • DeFning the number and characteristics of intermediates ( stable , transient , cyclic , acyclic , ionic...
