Draw structure for cis­5­chloro­2­hexene. 4 C H 3 C H 3 Chemistry 52 Chapter 20 DIENES & TRIENES: · Many co mpounds have more than one C=C. Compounds with two C=C are called dienes, and are named by numbering each carbon bearing the double bond. H C CH 2 C H H C 2 1,3­butadiene · Compounds with three double bonds are called trienes and are named similar to other alkenes. Examples: 1. Name the diene shown below, one of the components of natural rubber. 5 Chemistry 52 Chapter 20 PREPARATION OF ALKENES · Alkenes can be prepared by one of two methods: 1. Cracking of alkanes 2. Dehydrat ion of alcoho ls · Cracking, or pyrolysis, is the process in which saturated hydrocarbons are heated to very high temperatures in the presence of a catalyst (usually silica­alumina): Alkane (CnH2n+2) ® Mixture of alkenes + Alkanes + H2 (g) 2 CH3CH2CH3 ® CH3CH=CH2 + CH2=CH2 + CH4 + H2 · Dehydrat ion invo lves the eliminat ion of a mo lecule of water fro m a reactant mo lecule.
