Cyclic Ethers Cyclic ethers are formally named by the “Replacement approach”: parent ring with prefix oxa- indicating one ring carbon is replaced by oxygen. Three membered ring ethers: common names are epoxides, oxiranes, with the simplest one is ethylene oxide. Four-membered ring ethers can be called oxetanes The simplest five-membered ring ether is a common organic solvent tetrahydrofuran (THF) Oxacyclopentane Or tetrahydrofuran (THF) 1,4-dioxacyclohexane (1,4-dioxane) O O 3

Physical Properties of Alcohols and Ethers • Ether molecules cannot hydrogen bond to each other, and so their boiling points resemble those of hydrocarbons: 35°C for diethylether, 36°C for pentane, while 1-butanol boils at 118°C Alcohols and ethers can hydrogen-bond to water and thus have similar solubilities: about 8g diethyl ether or 1-butanol dissolve in 100 mL in water 4 OH OH OH O H OH OH OH OH Ethylene glycol Glycerol Benzyl alcohol Allyl alcohol Phenol http://s4.hubimg.com/u/1084 303_f248.jpg http://www.savannahgoa.com/product.php?i=10
