4 Why this Chapter? C-C double bonds are present in most organic and biological molecules To examine consequences of alkene stereoisomerism To focus on general alkene reaction: electrophilic addition

6 6.2 Calculating Degree of Unsaturation Relates molecular formula to possible structures Degree of unsaturation : number of multiple bonds or rings Formula for a saturated acyclic compound is C n H 2n+2 Each ring or multiple bond replaces 2 H's
Background image of page 6
7 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

10 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 Organoxygen compounds (C,H,O) - if connected by single bonds Ignore oxygens. These don't affect the total count of H's

11 Organonitrogen compounds 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

14 Count pairs of H's below C n H 2n+2 CH 2 =CH-CH=CH 2 (C 4 H 6 ) (2 degrees of unsaturation) Add number of halogens to number of H's (X equivalent to H) CH 3 CH 2 CHBrCH 2 CH 2 Br C 5 H 10 Br 2 Same as C 5 H 12 (saturated) Ignore oxygen atoms (oxygen links H) CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 OH C 3 H 8 O Same as C 3 H 8 (saturated) CH3CH2OCH3 C 3 H 8 O Same as C 3 H 8 (saturated) CH 3 COCH 3 C 3 H 6 O Same as C 3 H 6 ( 1 degree of unsaturation) Subtract N's and 1 hydrogen - they have two connections CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 NH 2 C 3 H 9 N Same as C 3 H 8 (saturated) CH 3 CH 2 CN C 3 H 5 N Same as C 3 H 4 (2 degrees of unsaturation) Summary - Degree of Unsaturation Rules
