6 S N 1 and E1 Short-Lived Ion Pair Gives Cl OHHO 40% retention60% inversion acetone H 2 O Cl - + Cl - temporarily blocks the “retention” face. Net Inversion! H 2 O: 80% racemization (should be 100% if there is a planar intermediate cation) (e.g. J&F sec )

7 EtOH/H 2 O (4:1) 55°C NaOH + tBu-BrHO-t-Bu + NaBr (0.01 M) + CH 2 =C(CH 3 ) 2 E2 or E1? How do you tell? Overall rate (not just % alkene) depends on [OH - ] Kinetic Isotope Effect shows whether H is being transferred in rate-determining step.

8 CH 3 -Br + OH - 5. (5 min) Give a real example of the influence of a change of reactant structure on the ratio of S N 2 to E2 products. Be as specific and quantitative as you can. (You will need to show the ratios for two different reactants.) (CH 3 ) 3 C-Br + OH - Perspectives on Drastic Ratios Synthetic Organic Chemist : Reliable High-Yield Tool Physical-Organic Chemist : Definitive E a Difference Unambiguous interpretation of cause e.g Steric retardation of i-Pr via S N 2 vs acceleration for t-Butyl via S N 1

9 Perspectives on 50:50 Product Ratios Physical-Organic Chemist : Valuable “Borderline” Reference Synthetic Organic Chemist : Deadly Influence on 12-Step Synthesis (1/2) 12 = 0.02% Yield (Might provide optimizable lead) Allows Sensitive Tests of Subtle Influences. e.g. isotope effect by competition

10 A valuable lesson from E2 Elimination

11 If Step 1 (motion) is rate-limiting, H- and D-transfer products should form in equal amounts. (because their motions should be equally fast) If Step 2 (atom shift) is rate-limiting, more H-transfer product should form. k H /k D > 1 (kinetic “isotope effect”) In a Very Viscous Solvent Can Short-Range Motion Constitute a Rate- (and Product-) Determining Step? Generates steric hindrance & requires moving radicals past N 2 N N CH 3 CH 3 H 3 C CD 3 CD 3 CD 3 UV Light CH 3 CH 3 H 3 C CD 3 CD 3 CD 3 Radical-Pair Combination CH 3 CH 3 H 3 C CD 2 CD 3 CD 3 D D (1) Rotate N 2 + C 4 D 9 (2) Shift D atom exothermic/easy/fast N N Radical-Pair “Disproportionation” (1) Rotate N 2 + C 4 H 9 (2) Shift H atom exothermic/easy/faster CD 3 CD 3 CD 3 CH 3 H 3 C CH 3 H CH 2 Jo-David’s Question: N N N N

17 Jo-David is now a respected professor of dermatology at Vanderbilt, and a world expert on Epidermolysis Bullosa. His son graduated from Yale in Happy Ending I: “…that project (and my conversation with that pleasant prof at U Michigan) did teach me more about the rigors and foibles of bench research than anything that I subsequently experienced as a postdoc at NIH. It therefore prepared me for many more happily transient foibles during the 19 years that I ran a bench immunology lab at UAB and UNC. As I found out the hard way, trying to predict ‘good behavior’ with cell lines, antibodies, and semi-purified proteins was even more subject to random whimsy than when I was trying to work with relatively straightforward purified chemicals in a far more structured laboratory setting as an undergrad. Jo-David Fine MD, MPH, FRCP (London) January 30, 2011

18 Crucial Lesson (from S. Nelsen, U. Wisc.) 95% 5% S N 1 When you need a compound, % yield isn’t everything! HCl salt easily purified by crystallization E1 / E2 Major product a gas, just “goes away” CD 3 Cheap!

19 Happy Ending II : Jo-David Fine’s successor found that in fluid solvents, there was more H- than D-transfer (atom transfer is rate-limiting), but that in very viscous solvents at low temperature this “kinetic isotope effect” disappeared (there were equal amounts of H- and D-transfer), because motion had indeed become rate-limiting.

23 Thermodynamic Stability of Butenes







30 Use NIST Webbook to study factors influencing relative stability of butenes For high precision convert to a common product, butane, using catalytic hydrogenation, which is fast and clean, and much less exothermic than combustion.

31 Isomeric Hexenes  H f Problem: Are these data consistent with those for the butenes?
