ChemActivity 18: Elimination Reactions Lecture: Organic Chemist’s Periodic Table, Reactants requiring counter ions, and Rates of reactions. Model 1: General Dehydrohalogenation Reaction Alkyl halides undergo elimination reactions with Bronsted-Lowry bases. C C H Cl CH 3 C H 3 CH 3 CH 3 + B : CH 3 CH 3 C H 3 C H 3 + H B + Cl - + : : : CTQs 1) What two elements are removed from the hydrocarbon starting material in Model 1? Hydrogen and chlorine What new structural feature is formed in the hydrocarbon product? alkene 2) Label the carbon connected to the chlorine atom as α , which means “atom immediately adjacent to” 3) Label the next carbon as β . This is the atom next to the α atom. 4) Dehydrohalogenation reactions are also called β elimination reactions . Suggest an explanation for this terminology. You are pulling off the hydrogen on the beta carbon….
