Organic Chemistry Alkenes H. D. Roth 1 Chemistry 307 Chapter 7 Structure and Synthesis of Alkenes Alkenes are hydrocarbons with (C=C) double bonds. Many alkenes occur in interesting natural products and others are of great industrial importance: ethylene is the largest volume industrial organic compound. 1. IUPAC nomenclature Rule 1: Find the longest chain containing the alkene function Rule 2: Number the ene function low Rule 3: Substituents are named as "prefixes" in alphabetical order 4-ethyl-1-methylcyclohexene Rule 4: Geometric isomers with like substituents are differentiated by the terms cis - trans - (Latin) trans -hex-3-ene cis -hex-3-ene cyclopentene trans -cyclodecene Rule 5: Geometric isomers with different substituents are designated by the terms Z- (zusammen) E- (entgegen) (German) h l h l l h h l Z- E- The pairs of geminal substituents are assigned priorities according to the Sequence Rule. Rule 6: the OH function has priority over the ene function H 2 C 2-propyl-6-hepten-1-ol OH 3-propyl-1-octene

Organic Chemistry Alkenes H. D. Roth 2 Rule 7: small alkene side chains are alkenyl- trans -1-butenylcyclopropane Please, review priorities (atomic number of directly bonded atoms, work to first point of difference, count double bonds twice, triple bonds three times, use mass number for isotopes). Here is your chance to practice ! H H 2 N C CH 3 H HO O D H CH 3 2. Structure and Bonding in Alkenes Alkenes contain two sp2 hybridized carbon atoms connected by one ! bond and one " bond . We can “cons t ruc t” the bonds of ethylene by combining two sp2 hybridized carbon atoms. H H H H ! bond " bond C H C H H H Alkenes are planar with bond angles of ~120°; the " bond prevents free rotation about the C=C bond. This is the reason for cis - trans isomerism (geometric isomerism). The C=C bond is shorter and stronger than the C–C bond. C H C H H H 1.33 Å 1.08 Å 116.6° 121.7° The " bond is weaker (more reac t
