Iverson Slide 2: Haloalkanes Chapter 8 Structure : Structure Haloalkane (alkyl halide): a compound containing a halogen covalently bonded to an sp3 hybridized carbon; given the symbol RX Haloalkene (vinylic halide): a compound containing a halogen bonded to an sp2 hybridized carbon Haloarene (aryl halide): a compound containing a halogen bonded to a benzene ring; given the symbol ArX (we do not study vinylic or aryl halides in this chapter) Nomenclature : Nomenclature number the parent chain to give the substituent encountered first the lowest number, whether it is halogen or an alkyl group indicate halogen substituents by the prefixes fluoro-, chloro-, bromo-, and iodo-, and list them in alphabetical order with other substituents locate each halogen on the parent chain by giving it a number preceding the name of the halogen in haloalkenes, number the parent chain to give carbon atoms of the double bond the lower set of numbers Nomenclature : Nomenclature examples Common names: name the alkyl group followed by the name of the halide Nomenclature : Nomenclature several polyhaloalkanes are common solvents and are generally referred to by their common or trivial names hydrocarbons in which all hydrogens are replaced by halogens are commonly named as perhaloalkanes or perhaloalkenes Dipole Moments : Dipole Moments Dipole moment of RX depends on: the sizes of the partial charges the distance between them the polarizability of the unshared electrons on halogen van der Waals Forces : van der Waals Forces Haloalkanes are associated in the liquid state by van der Waals forces van der Waals forces: a group intermolecular attractive forces including dipole-dipole forces dipole-induced dipole forces induced dipole-induced dipole (dispersion) forces van der Waals forces pull molecules together as molecules are brought closer and closer, van der Waals attractive forces are overcome by repulsive forces between electron clouds of adjacent atoms or molecules van der Waals Forces : van der Waals Forces the energy minimum is where the attractive forces are the strongest nonbonded interatomic and intermolecular distances at these minima can be measured by x-ray crystallography and each atom and group of atoms can be assigned a van der Waals radius nonbonded atoms in a molecule cannot approach each other closer than the sum of their van der Waals radii without causing nonbonded interaction strain Boiling Points : Boiling Points For an alkane and a haloalkane of comparable size and shape, the haloalkane has the higher boiling point the difference is due almost entirely to the greater polarizability of the three unshared pairs of electrons on halogen compared with the low polarizability of shared electron pairs of covalent bonds polarizability: a measure of the ease of distortion of the distribution of electron density about an atom in response to interaction with other molecules and ions; fluorine has a very low polarizability, iodine has a very high polarizability Boiling Points : Boiling Points among constitutional isomers, branched isomers have a more compact shape, decreased area of contact, decreased van der Waals attractive forces between neighbors, and lower boiling points Boiling Points : Boiling Points boiling points of fluoroalkanes are comparable to those of hydrocarbons of similar molecular weight and shape the low boiling points of fluoroalkanes are the result of the small size of fluorine, the tightness with which its electrons are held, and their particularly low polarizability Density : Density The densities of liquid haloalkanes are greater than those of hydrocarbons of comparable molecular weight a halogen has a greater mass per volume than a methyl or methylene group All liquid bromoalkanes and iodoalkanes are more dense than water Di- and polyhalogenated alkanes are more dense than water Bond Lengths, Strengths : Bond Lengths, Strengths C-F bonds are stronger than C-H bonds; C-Cl, C-Br, and C-I bonds are weaker Halogenation of Alkanes : Halogenation of Alkanes If a mixture of methane and chlorine is kept in the dark at room temperature, no change occurs If the mixture is heated or exposed to visible or ultraviolet light, reaction begins at once with the evolution of heat Substitution: a reaction in which an atom or group of atoms is replaced by another atom or group of atoms Halogenation of Alkanes : Halogenation of Alkanes if chloromethane is allowed to react with more chlorine, a mixture of chloromethanes is formed Regioselectivity : Regioselectivity Regioselectivity is high for bromination, but not as high for chlorination Regioselectivity : Regioselectivity Regioselectivity is 3° > 2° > 1° for bromination, approximately 1600:80:1 for chlorination, approximately 5:4:1 Example: draw all monobromination products and predict the percentage of each for this reaction Energetics : Energetics Bond Dissociation Enthalpies (BDE) Energetics : Energetics Using BDE, we can calculate the heat of reaction, H0, for the halogenation of an alkane Mechanism : Mechanism Radical: any chemical species that contains one or more unpaired electrons radicals are formed by homolytic bond cleavage the order of stability of alkyl radicals is 3° > 2° > 1° > methyl Radical Chain Mechanism : Radical Chain Mechanism Chain initiation: a step in a chain reaction characterized by formation of reactive intermediates (radicals, anions, or cations) from nonradical or noncharged molecules Radical Chain Mechanism : Radical Chain Mechanism Chain propagation: a step in a chain reaction characterized by the reaction of a reactive intermediate and a molecule to form a new reactive intermediate and a new molecule Chain length: the number of times the cycle of chain propagation steps repeats in a chain reaction Radical Chain Mechanism : Radical Chain Mechanism Chain termination: a step in a chain reaction that involves destruction of reactive intermediates Chain Propagation Steps : Chain Propagation Steps For any set of chain propagation steps, their equations add to the observed stoichiometry enthalpies add to the observed H0 Regioselectivity? : Regioselectivity? The regioselectivity of chlorination and bromination can be accounted for in terms of the relative stabilities of alkyl radicals (3° > 2° > 1° > methyl) But how do we account for the greater regioselectivity of bromination (1600:80:1) compared with chlorination (5:4:1) Hammond’s Postulate : Hammond’s Postulate Hammond’s Postulate: the structure of the transition state for an exothermic step looks more like the reactants of that step than the products for an endothermic step looks more like the products of that step than the reactants This postulate applies equally well to the transition state for a one-step reaction and to each transition state in a multi-step reaction Slide 28: Hammond’s Postulate Hammond’s Postulate : Hammond’s Postulate in halogenation of an alkane, hydrogen abstraction (the rate-determining step) is exothermic for chlorination but endothermic for bromination Hammond’s Postulate : Hammond’s Postulate Because hydrogen abstraction for chlorination is exothermic: the transition state resembles the alkane and a chlorine atom there is little radical character on carbon in the transition state regioselectivity is only slightly influenced by radical stability Hammond’s Postulate : Hammond’s Postulate Because hydrogen abstraction for bromination is endothermic: the transition state resembles an alkyl radical and HBr there is significant radical character on carbon in the transition state regioselectivity is greatly influenced by radical stability radical stability is 3° > 2° > 1° > methyl, and regioselectivity is in the same order Hammond’s Postulate : Hammond’s Postulate Stereochemistry : Stereochemistry When radical halogenation produces a chiral center or takes place at a hydrogen on a chiral center, the product is a mixture of R and S enantiomers as a racemic mixture for simple alkyl radicals, the carbon bearing the radical is sp2 hybridized and the unpaired electron occupies the unhybridized 2p orbital (see next screen) Stereochemistry : Stereochemistry Allylic Halogenation : Allylic Halogenation Allylic carbon: a C adjacent to a C-C double bond Allylic hydrogen: an H on an allylic carbon an allylic C-H bond is weaker than a vinylic C-H bond Allylic Bromination : Allylic Bromination Allylic bromination using NBS Allylic Bromination : Allylic Bromination A radical chain mechanism Chain initiation Chain propagation Allylic Bromination : Allylic Bromination chain termination Br2 is provided by the reaction of NBS with HBr The Allyl Radical : The Allyl Radical A hybrid of two equivalent contributing structures (Equivalent contributing structures) • • The Allyl Radical : The Allyl Radical Molecular orbital model of the allyl radical The Allyl Radical : The Allyl Radical Unpaired electron spin density map of the allyl radical the unpaired electron density (green lobes) appears only on carbons 1 and 3 Allylic Halogenation : Allylic Halogenation Example 8.5 Account for the fact that allylic bromination of 1-octene by NBS gives these isomeric products Radical Autoxidation : Radical Autoxidation Autoxidation: oxidation requiring oxygen, O2, and no other oxidizing agent occurs by a radical chain mechanism similar to that for allylic halogenation in this section, we concentrate on autoxidation of the hydrocarbon chains of polyunsaturated triglycerides the characteristic feature of the fatty acid chains in polyunsaturated triglycerides is the presence of 1,4-dienes radical abstraction of a doubly allylic hydrogen of a 1,4-diene forms a particularly stable radical Radical Autoxidation : Radical Autoxidation autoxidation begins when a radical initiator, X•, abstracts a doubly allylic hydrogen this radical is stabilized by resonance with both double bonds Radical Autoxidation : Radical Autoxidation the doubly allylic radical reacts with oxygen, itself a diradical, to form a peroxy radical the peroxy radical then reacts with another 1,4-diene to give a new radical, R•, and a hydroperoxide vitamin A, a naturally occurring antioxidant, reacts preferentially with the initial peroxy radical to give a resonance-stabilized phenoxy radical, which is very unreactive, and scavenges another peroxide radical Radical Autoxidation : Radical Autoxidation vitamin E as an antioxidant Radical Addition of HBr to Alkenes : Radical Addition of HBr to Alkenes Addition of HBr to alkenes gives either Markovnikov addition or non-Markovnikov addition depending on reaction conditions Markovnikov addition occurs when radicals are absent non-Markovnikov addition occurs when peroxides or other sources of radicals are present Radical Addition of HBr to Alkenes : Radical Addition of HBr to Alkenes addition of HCl and HI gives only Markovnikov products to account for the the non-Markovnikov addition of HBr in the presence of peroxides, chemists proposed a radical chain mechanism Chain initiation Radical Addition of HBr to Alkenes : Radical Addition of HBr to Alkenes Chain propagation Radical Addition of HBr to Alkenes : Radical Addition of HBr to Alkenes Chain termination This pair of addition reactions illustrates how the products of a reaction can often be changed by a change in experimental conditions polar addition of HBr is regioselective, with Br adding to the more substituted carbon radical addition of HBr is also regioselective, with Br adding to the less substituted carbon Haloalkanes : Haloalkanes End Chapter 8 You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
