2 Organic ChemistryOrganic Chemistry is the chemistry of carbon containing moleculesOriginally thought to be produced only by living things… organicChemistry is the study of the composition, structure and reactions of matterThe Structure of molecules is very important in organic and biochemistry
3 IUPAC Names: Organic Molecule Prefixes The names of organic compounds are determined by the IUPAC rules (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry). The stem of the name states the number of carbon atoms in the carbon chain of the compounds. The suffix, in this case –ane, indicates the alkane family.
4 Structural Formulas Revisited Alkanes are written as structural formulas:Revisit Chapter 6 for more detailsExpanded Structure shows each bondCondensed Structures show each carbon atom and the attached hydrogen atomsIn methane, CH4 the four valence electrons of carbon are shared with the single electrons of four hydrogen (H) atoms. Each pair of electrons is a single bond, which can be drawn as a line. When a structure is drawn to show each bond, it is called a complete structural formula.
5 Drawing Structural (Line) Formulas Carbon atoms in a chain:maintain their tetrahedral shapeare connected in a zigzag patternare drawn as two dimensionalcan be written in many wayshave free rotation in straight chain
6 ConformersRemember, organic compounds have free rotation around sp3 carbon atoms, this leads to a variety of spatial orientations for the same structureConformers: different orientations of the same molecule:
7 ConformersLet’s consider different conformers of pentane, C5H12:
8 IsomersIsomers:Compounds with the same molecular formula but different atomic arrangementsFor Example:Butane (C4H10) has a straight chain and a branched chain form
9 IsomersLet’s consider different isomers of pentane, C5H12:
10 Alkanes with Substituents In the IUPAC system:a carbon branch is named an alkyl-grouphalogen atoms are named as halo-group
11 Naming Alkanes Find longest alkane chain Name and number substituents Substituents are numbers to give the lowest number possibleSubstituents are named in alphabetical order, ignore prefixes di-, tri-, etc…

16 Classifying Carbon Atoms Primary (1°): attached to one other carbon Secondary (2°): attached to two other carbons Tertiary (3°): attached to three other carbons Quaternary (4°): attached to four other carbons
17 Cycloalkanes Saturated compounds with a ring structure Have a loss of free rotationFormed by removal of a H atom form each end carbonButane, C4H10Cyclobutane, C4H8
18 CycloalkanesSaturated compounds with a ring structure that have a loss of free rotationPractice drawing cyclohexane, C6H12
19 Unsaturated Hydrocarbons Alkenes contain a carbon-carbon double bond (C = C)Have a fixed structure around the C=CNamed for the longest carbon chain which includes the base alkeneAlkynes contain a carbon-carbon triple bond (C ≡ C)Named for the longest carbon chain which includes the base alkyne
21 cis and trans Isomers of Alkenes Alkenes have two different isomers that are determined by what groups lie on each side of the double bond:cis: substituent groups are on the same side of the double bondtrans: substituent groups are on the opposite side of the double bondMUST have two different groups on C
23 AlkynesNO rotation around the C≡C and have a straight line structure at the triple bond:EXAMPLE:
24 Reactions of Alkenes Addition Reactions (Combination Reactions): Reactants add across the double bondH2 (hydrogenation) and halogens (F2, Br2, Cl2)+ 3 H2
25 Reactions of Alkenes Addition Reactions (combination reactions) HF, HCl, HBr, HIH2O, creates an alcohol+ HCl+ H2O
26 Polymerization of Alkenes Polymerization is an Addition Reaction:Addition reaction where one alkene combines with another alkenePolymer: A molecule with a high molar mass made up of thousands of repeating units.Monomer: individual molecules used to produce the polymer.
28 PolymerizationIn polymerization, small repeating units called monomers join to form a long-chain polymer

32 Reactions of AlkynesAlkynes react very similarly to alkenes but often can add two moles of reactant per mole of alkyne (due to triple bond)

38 Alcohols and EthersAn alcohol contains the hydroxyl (-OH) functional groupIn an ether, an oxygen atom is bonded to two carbon atoms
39 Aldehydes and Ketones Contain a carbonyl group (C=O) In an aldehyde, the carbonyl group is attached to another carbon atom and one hydrogen atomIn a ketone, the carbonyl group attached to two other carbon atoms
40 Oxidation Reactions In organic chemistry (and biochemistry): Oxidation Reactions typically involve the addition of bonds to oxygenReduction Reactions typically involves a gain of hydrogen
41 Classification of Alcohols Alcohols are:classified by the number of carbon groups attached to the carbon atom bound to the -OH group:Primary Alcohol when one carbon group attachedSecondary Alcohols when two carbon groups are attachedTertiary Alcohols when three carbon groups are attached
42 Classification of Alcohols Alcohols are:classified by the number of carbon groups attached to the carbon atom bound to the -OH group:
