16 Some Aromatic Amines
Example Cholesterol is a major component of gallstones, and it is believed that the cholesterol level in the blood is a contributing factor in certain types of heart disease. From the following structure of the compound, predict its reaction with (a) Br 2, (b) H 2 (in the presence of a Pt catalyst), (c) CH 3 COOH.
Example Strategy To predict the type of reactions a molecule may undergo, we must first identify the functional groups present (see Table 24.4). Solution There are two functional groups in cholesterol: the hydroxyl group and the carbon-carbon double bond. (a)The reaction with bromine results in the addition of bromine to the double-bonded carbons, which become single- bonded.
Example Strategy To predict the type of reactions a molecule may undergo, we must first identify the functional groups present (see Table 24.4). Solution There are two functional groups in cholesterol: the hydroxyl group and the carbon-carbon double bond. (b) This is a hydrogenation reaction. Again, the carbon-carbon double bond is converted to a carbon-carbon single bond.
Example (c) The acid reacts with the hydroxyl group to form an ester and water. Figure shows the products of these reactions.
