Unformatted text preview: 1 ORGANIC CHEMISTRY 2 Isomerism Types of Organic Compounds 3 • Isomers have identical composition but Isomers have different structures • Two forms of isomerism • Vast majority of over 20 million known compounds are based on C: organic organic compounds. • Generally contain C and H + other elements • Great variety of compounds – Constitutional (or structural) – Stereoisomerism • Constitutional – Same empirical formula but different atomto-atom connections • Stereoisomerism – Same atom-to-atom connections but different arrangement in space. 4 Structural Isomers 5 6 Stereoisomers: Optical Stereoisomers: Geometric Geometric isomers can occur when there is a C=C double bond. • Optical isomers are molecules with non-superimposable mirror images. superimposable mirror Such molecules are called CHIRAL Such CHIRAL Pairs of chiral molecules are Pairs molecules enantiomers . • Chiral molecules in solution can rotate Chiral molecules the plane of plane polarized light. • • Cis-2-butene Trans-2- butene 1 Chiral Compounds and Chiral Compounds Polarized Light 7 8 Stereoisomers Isomers Stereoisomers Isomers 9 Chirality generally occurs when a C atom has 4 different groups attached. Lactic acid isomers are nonsuperimposable Lactic acid Chirality: Handedness in Nature 10 Chirality: Handedness in Nature 11 Stereoisomers in Nature 12 Right- and lefthanded seashells These molecules are non-superimposable mirror images. These amino acids are nonsuperimposable mirror images. The DNA here is right-handed 2 13 Hydrocarbons 15 17 18 Hydrocarbons • Alkanes have the general formula Alkanes have CnH2n+2 • CH4 = methane • C2H6 = ethane • C3H8 = propane • C4H10 = butane butane 10 • C5H12 = pentane • Compounds of C and H • Subgroups: – Alkanes : C-C single bonds – Alkenes : C=C double bonds – Alkynes : carbon-carbon triple bonds – Aromatic: based on benzene 16 Methane Hydrate, CH4(H2O)x 14 Methane Hydrate, CH4(H2O)x Methane Hydrate, CH4(H2O)x Gas hydrates have been known for many years, and combustion of a sample of methane hydrate is seen on the front cover. Recently, however, vast deposits of methane hydrate were discovered deep within sediments on the floor of the world’s oceans. How these deposits were formed is a mystery. But what is important is their size. It is estimated that the global methane hydrate deposits contain approximately 1013 tons of carbon, or about twice the combined amount in all reserves of coal, oil, and conventional natural gas. Now if scientists and engineers could only solve the problem of extracting the methane conveniently and safely! 3 CH3CH2 CH2CH2 CH3 Pentane CH3 Hydrocarbons 19 & Structural Isomerism CH3CHCH2CH3 Isomers of C 5H12? 2-Methylbutane CH3 H3CCCH3 CH3 2,2-Dimethylpropane Note names of isomers C5H12 has 3 structural isomers.

H All compounds are flexible. Cyclohexane , C6H12, has interconverting has interconverting “chair” and “boat” forms. Alkanes are colorless gases, liquids, Alkanes are and solids Generally unreactive (but undergo Generally (but combustion) Not polar (or low polarity) and so are not soluble in water. 22 Alkenes: Compounds with C=C Double Bonds 21 Hydrocarbons: Cycloalkanes Hydrocarbons: Cycloalkanes Alkenes— Many Occur Naturally Br Br HC CH HH 1,2-dibromoethane 4 An Addition Reaction 25 Fat placed in Br2 vapor An Addition Reaction 26 • Fats can be “hydrogenated” with H2. Fat placed in Br2 vapor • The fat in bacon is partially unsaturated. The fat adds Br 2 to the C=C bonds. • Fats can be “hydrogenated” with H2. Alkynes • Alkynes have carbon-carbon triple bonds.
