1 AN INTRODUCTION TO ORGANIC CHEMISTRY A guide for A level students KNOCKHARDY PUBLISHING

2 CONTENTS INTRODUCTION This Powerpoint show is one of several produced to help students understand selected topics at AS and A2 level Chemistry. It is based on the requirements of the AQA and OCR specifications but is suitable for other examination boards. Individual students may use the material at home for revision purposes or it may be used for classroom teaching if an interactive white board is available. Accompanying notes on this, and the full range of AS and A2 topics, are available from the KNOCKHARDY SCIENCE WEBSITE at... Navigation is achieved by... either clicking on the grey arrows at the foot of each page orusing the left and right arrow keys on the keyboard KNOCKHARDY PUBLISHING ORGANIC CHEMISTRY

3 CONTENTS Scope of organic chemistry Special nature of carbon Types of formulae Homologous series Functional groups Nomenclature Investigating molecules Revision check list CONTENTS ORGANIC CHEMISTRY

4 Before you start it would be helpful to… Recall how covalent bonding arises Recall simple electron pair repulsion theory CONTENTS ORGANIC CHEMISTRY

5 CONTENTS ORGANIC CHEMISTRY Organic chemistry is the study of carbon compounds. It is such a complex branch of chemistry because... CARBON ATOMS FORM STRONG COVALENT BONDS TO EACH OTHER THE CARBON-CARBON BONDS CAN BE SINGLE, DOUBLE OR TRIPLE CARBON ATOMS CAN BE ARRANGED IN STRAIGHT CHAINS BRANCHED CHAINS andRINGS OTHER ATOMS/GROUPS OF ATOMS CAN BE PLACED ON THE CARBON ATOMS GROUPS CAN BE PLACED IN DIFFERENT POSITIONS ON A CARBON SKELETON

6 CONTENTS SPECIAL NATURE OF CARBON - CATENATION CATENATION is the ability to form bonds between atoms of the same element. Carbon forms chains and rings, with single, double and triple covalent bonds, because it is able to FORM STRONG COVALENT BONDS WITH OTHER CARBON ATOMS Carbon forms a vast number of carbon compounds because of the strength of the C-C covalent bond. Other Group IV elements can do it but their chemistry is limited due to the weaker bond strength. BOND ATOMIC RADIUS BOND ENTHALPY C-C nm+348 kJmol -1 Si-Si nm+176 kJmol -1 The larger the atoms, the weaker the bond. Shielding due to filled inner orbitals and greater distance from the nucleus means that the shared electron pair is held less strongly.

14 CONTENTS HOMOLOGOUS SERIES A series of compounds of similar structure in which each member differs from the next by a common repeating unit, CH 2. Series members are called homologues and... all share the same general formula. formula of a homologue differs from its neighbour by CH 2. (e.g. CH 4, C 2 H 6,... etc ) contain the same functional group have similar chemical properties. show a gradual change in physical properties as molar mass increases. can usually be prepared by similar methods. ALCOHOLS - FIRST THREE MEMBERS OF THE SERIES CH 3 OH C 2 H 5 OH C 3 H 7 OH METHANOLETHANOL PROPAN-1-OL

15 CONTENTS FUNCTIONAL GROUPS Organic chemistry is a vast subject so it is easier to split it into small sections for study. This is done by studying compounds which behave in a similar way because they have a particular atom, or group of atoms, FUNCTIONAL GROUP, in their structure. Functional groups can consist of one atom, a group of atoms or multiple bonds between carbon atoms. Each functional group has its own distinctive properties which means that the properties of a compound are governed by the functional group(s) in it.

20 CONTENTS NOMENCLATURE Ideally a naming system should tell you everything about a structure without ambiguity. There are two types of naming system commonly found in organic chemistry; Trivial :based on some property or historical aspect; the name tells you little about the structure Systematic :based on an agreed set of rules (I.U.P.A.C); exact structure can be found from the name (and vice-versa). HOMOLOGOUS SERIES trivial namesystematic name example(s) paraffin alkanemethane, butane olefin alkeneethene, butene fatty acid alkanoic (carboxylic) acidethanoic acid INDIVIDUAL COMPOUNDS trivial name derivation systematic name methanemethu = wine (Gk.)methane (CH 4 ) butanebutyrum = butter (Lat.)butane (C 4 H 10 ) acetic acidacetum = vinegar (Lat.)ethanoic acid (CH 3 COOH)

21 CONTENTS I.U.P.A.C. NOMENCLATURE A systematic name has two main parts. STEMnumber of carbon atoms in longest chain bearing the functional group + a prefix showing the position and identity of any side-chain substituents. Apart from the first four, which have trivial names, the number of carbons atoms is indicated by a prefix derived from the Greek numbering system. The list of alkanes demonstrate the use of prefixes. The ending -ane is the same as they are all alkanes. Prefix C atoms Alkane meth-1methane eth-2ethane prop-3propane but-4butane pent-5pentane hex-6hexane hept-7heptane oct-8octane non-9nonane dec- 10decane Working out which is the longest chain can pose a problem with larger molecules.

22 CH 2 CH 3 CH 2 CH 3 CH 2 CH 3 CH 2 CH 3 CH 2 CH 3 I.U.P.A.C. NOMENCLATURE How long is a chain? Because organic molecules are three dimensional and paper is two dimensional it can confusing when comparing molecules. This is because It is too complicated to draw molecules with the correct bond angles 2. Single covalent bonds are free to rotate All the following written structures are of the same molecule - PENTANE C 5 H 12 A simple way to check is to run a finger along the chain and see how many carbon atoms can be covered without reversing direction or taking the finger off the page.

25 I.U.P.A.C. NOMENCLATURE SUBSTITUENTSMany compounds have substituents (additional atoms, or groups) attached to the chain. Their position is numbered. A systematic name has two main parts. SUFFIXAn ending that tells you which functional group is present See if any functional groups are present. Add relevant ending to the basic stem. In many cases the position of the functional group must be given to avoid any ambiguity Functional group Suffix ALKANE- ANE ALKENE- ENE ALKYNE- YNE ALCOHOL- OL ALDEHYDE- AL KETONE- ONE ACID- OIC ACID 1-CHLOROBUTANE 2-CHLOROBUTANE

26 CONTENTS SIDE-CHAIN carbon based substituents are named before the chain name. they have the prefix -yl added to the basic stem (e.g. CH 3 is methyl). Number the principal chain from one end to give the lowest numbers. Side-chain names appear in alphabetical order butyl, ethyl, methyl, propyl Each side-chain is given its own number. If identical side-chains appear more than once, prefix with di, tri, tetra, penta, hexa Numbers are separated from names by a HYPHENe.g. 2-methylheptane Numbers are separated from numbers by a COMMAe.g. 2,3-dimethylbutane Alkyl radicals methylCH 3 - CH 3 ethylCH 3 - CH 2 - C 2 H 5 propylCH 3 - CH 2 - CH 2 - C 3 H 7 I.U.P.A.C.

34 CONTENTS WHICH COMPOUND IS IT? Elucidation of the structures of organic compounds - a brief summary Organic chemistry is so vast that the identification of a compound can be involved. The characterisation takes place in a series of stages (see below). Relatively large amounts of substance were required to elucidate the structure but, with modern technology and the use of electronic instrumentation, very small amounts are now required. Elemental composition One assumes that organic compounds contain carbon and hydrogen but it can be proved by letting the compound undergo combustion. Carbon is converted to carbon dioxide and hydrogen is converted to water. Percentage composition by mass Found by dividing the mass of an element present by the mass of the compound present, then multiplying by 100. Elemental mass of C and H can be found by allowing the substance to undergo complete combustion. From this one can find... mass of carbon=12/44 of the mass of CO 2 produced mass of hydrogen=2/18 of the mass of H 2 O produced

35 CONTENTS INVESTIGATING MOLECULES Empirical formula The simplest ratio of elements present in the substance. It is calculated by dividing the mass or percentage mass of each element by its molar mass and finding the simplest ratio between the answers. Empirical formula is converted to the molecular formula using molecular mass.

Comparing the molecular mass with the empirical mass allows one to find the true formula. e.g. if the empirical formula is CH (relative mass = 13) and the molecular mass is 78 the molecular formula will be 78/13 or 6 times the empirical formula i.e. C 6 H 6.
