Chapter 22 “Hydrocarbon Compounds” Mr. Gower Troy High School (C 4 H 10 )
Organic Chemistry and Hydrocarbons “Organic” originally referred to any chemicals that came from organisms 1828 - German chemist Friedrich Wohler synthesized urea in a lab Today, organic chemistry is the chemistry of virtually all compounds containing the element carbon
Friedrich Wohler 1800 – 1882 Used inorganic substances to synthesize urea, a carbon compound found in urine. This re-defined organic chemistry.
Organic Chemistry and Hydrocarbons Over a million organic compounds, with a dazzling array of properties Why so many? Carbon’s unique bonding ability! Let’s start with the simplest of the organic compounds. These are the Hydrocarbons.
Organic Chemistry and Hydrocarbons Hydrocarbons contain only two elements: 1) hydrogen, and 2) carbon –simplest hydrocarbons called “alkanes”, which contain only carbon to carbon single covalent bonds (C n H 2n+2 ) –methane (CH 4 ) with one carbon is the simplest alkane. It is the major component of natural gas.
Organic Chemistry and Hydrocarbons Review structural formulas - p.694 Carbon has 4 valence electrons, thus forms 4 covalent bonds –not only with other elements, but also forms bonds WITH ITSELF (nonpolar) Ethane (C 2 H 6 ) is the simplest alkane with a carbon to carbon bond
Organic Chemistry and Hydrocarbons One carbon atom can form a single covalent bond with four hydrogen atoms.
Organic Chemistry and Hydrocarbons Ball-and-stick modelSpace-filling model Formulas and Models for Methane and Ethane
Straight-Chain Alkanes Straight-chain alkanes contain any number of carbon atoms, one after the other, in a chain pattern - meaning one linked to the next (not always straight) C-C-C C-C-C-C etc. Names of alkanes always will always end with -ane
Alkanes Straight-Chain Alkanes Ethane is the simplest of the straight-chain alkanes, which contain any number of carbon atoms, one after the other, in a chain.
Straight-Chain Alkanes Combined with the -ane ending is a prefix for the number of carbons -Table 22.1, page 695 Homologous series- a group of compounds that have a constant increment of change In alkanes, it is: -CH 2 - (methylene)
Alkanes A group of compounds forms a homologous series if there is a constant increment of change in molecular structure from one compound in the series to the next.
Straight-Chain Alkanes Many alkanes used for fuels : methane, propane, butane, octane As the number of carbons increases, so does the boiling and melting pt. –The first 4 are gases; #5-15 are liquids; higher alkanes are solids Condensed structural formulas? Note examples on page 696
Naming Straight-Chain Alkanes Names recommended by IUPAC - the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry end with –ane; the root part of the name indicates the # of carbons We sometimes still rely on common names, some of which are well-known
Naming Straight-Chain Alkanes IUPAC names may be long and cumbersome Common names may be easier or more familiar, but usually do not describe the chemical structure! –Methane is natural gas or swamp gas
Branched-Chain Alkanes Branched-chain means that other elements besides hydrogen may be attached to the carbon –halogens, oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, and even other carbons –any atom that takes the place of a hydrogen on a parent hydrocarbon is called a substituent, or the branched part
Alkanes Branched-Chain Alkanes An atom or group of atoms that can take the place of a hydrogen atom on a parent hydrocarbon molecule is called a substituent.
Branched-Chain Alkanes A hydrocarbon substituent is called an alkyl group or sometimes radicals –use the same prefixes to indicate the number of carbons, but -ane ending is now -yl such as: methyl, ethyl, propyl, etc. Gives much more variety to the organic compounds
Branched-Chain Alkanes Rules for naming – (go from right to left) - page 698 1. Longest C-C chain is parent 2. Number so branches have lowest # 3. Give position number to branch 4. Prefix (di, tri) more than one branch 5. Alphabetize branches (not prefix) 6. Use proper punctuation ( - and, )
Branched-Chain Alkanes From the name, draw the structure, in a right-to-left manner: 1. Find the parent, with the -ane 2. Number carbons on parent 3. Identify substituent groups (give lowest number); attach 4. Add remaining hydrogens
Alkanes Draw 3-ethylpentane Draw 2,3,4-trimethylhexane Since the electrons are shared equally, the molecule is nonpolar –thus, not attracted to water –oil (a hydrocarbon) not soluble in H 2 O –“like dissolves like”

22.1 Section Quiz 3. Choose the correct words for the spaces. Hydrocarbons are highly soluble in _______ solvents because they are ________ molecules. a. nonpolar, nonpolar b. nonpolar, polar c. polar, nonpolar d. polar, polar
Alkenes Multiple bonds can also exist between the carbon atoms Hydrocarbons containing carbon to carbon double bonds are called alkenes (C n H 2n ) C=C C-C=C Called “unsaturated” if they contain double or triple bonds
Naming Alkenes Find longest parent that has the double bond in it New ending: -ene Number the chain, so that the double bond gets the lower number Name and number the substituents Samples on page 702
Alkenes Alkenes are hydrocarbons that contain one or more carbon-carbon double covalent bonds.
Alkenes Because rotation is restricted around the double bond, atoms in ethene lie in one plane. Ethene
Alkynes Hydrocarbons containing carbon to carbon triple bonds are called alkynes (C n H 2n-2 ) -C C- Alkynes are not plentiful in nature Simplest is ethyne- common name acetylene (fuel for torches) Table 22.3, p. 703 for boiling pt. ethyne
Alkynes At least one carbon-carbon bond in an alkyne is a triple covalent bond. Other bonds may be single or double carbon-carbon bonds and single carbon-hydrogen bonds.
Alkynes Straight-chain and branched-chain alkanes, alkenes, and alkynes are aliphatic hydrocarbons. Alkenes and alkynes are unsaturated!
Alkynes The triple bond restricts rotation in an ethyne molecule, which has a linear shape.

Structural Isomers Compounds that have the same molecular formula, but different molecular structures, are called structural isomers Butane and 2-methylpropane (made by breaking carbon off the end, and making it a branch in the middle) Also have different properties, such as b.p., m.p., and reactivity
Stereoisomers Don’t forget that these structures are really 3- dimensional stereoisomers- molecules of the same molecular structure that differ only in the arrangement of the atoms in space. Two types are a) geometric and b) optical
Geometric Isomers There is a lack of rotation around a carbon to carbon multiple bond –has an important structural implication –Two possible arrangements: 1. trans configuration - substituted groups on opposite sides of double bond 2. cis configuration - same side
Substituted groups are on opposite sides of the double bond (in this case, one is above, the other is below) Substituted groups are on the same side of the double bond (in this case, both are above) Geometric Isomers Trans-2-butene Cis-2-butene
Geometric Isomers Trans-2-butene and Cis-2-butene shown on page 705 differ in the geometry of the substituted groups (to double bond) like other structural isomers, have different physical and chemical properties ( note page 705-middle)
Geometric Isomers In the trans configuration, the methyl groups are on opposite sides of the double bond. In the cis configuration, the methyl groups are on the same side of the double bond.
Optical Isomers Asymmetric carbon? C with 4 different groups attached. Conceptual Problem 22.4, p.706 Molecules containing asymmetric carbons have “handedness”, and exist as stereoisomers. –Figure 22.9, page 705
Optical Isomers, and these will each show an asymetric carbon (4 different branches attached) The asymetric carbon
1.Structural isomers have different properties because they have a. a different number of bonds. b. different types of bonds. c. different substituents. d. a different order of atoms. 22.3 Section Quiz

4. A carbon atom that has four different substituents always forms a. an optical isomer. b. a saturated hydrocarbon. c. a geometric isomer. d. an unsaturated hydrocarbon. 22.3 Section Quiz
Cyclic Hydrocarbons The two ends of the carbon chain are attached in a ring in a cyclic hydrocarbon –sample drawings on page 709 –named as “cyclo- ____” hydrocarbon compounds that do NOT contain rings are known as aliphatic compounds
Cyclic Hydrocarbons Three Ways to Represent Cyclic Hydrocarbons
Aromatic Hydrocarbons A special group of unsaturated cyclic hydrocarbons is known as arenes –contain single rings, or groups of rings –also called “aromatic hydrocarbons”, because of pleasant odor –simplest aromatic is benzene (C 6 H 6 ) –Term “aromatic” applies to materials with bonding like that of benzene
Aromatic Hydrocarbons Benzene is a six-carbon ring, with alternating double and single bonds –exhibits resonance, due to location of the double and single bonds-p.710 Benzene derivatives possible: –methylbenzene, 3- phenylhexane, ethylbenzene (top page 711)
Aromatic Hydrocarbons The Structure of Benzene Benzene can be shown as switching, or resonating, between two arrangements of alternating double and single bonds.
Aromatic Hydrocarbons The three symbols below can be used to represent the benzene ring. If the bonds are shown as alternating single and double bonds (on right), it is important to remember that bonds don’t actually alternate and that all six bonds are identical.
Aromatic Hydrocarbons Space-filling Model of Benzene
Aromatic Hydrocarbons Substituted Aromatic Compounds Compounds with a substituent on a benzene ring are named as a derivative of benzene. When benzene is a substituent, it is called a phenyl group.
Aromatic Hydrocarbons A benzene ring can have two or more substituents.
Aromatic Hydrocarbons The molecules of many dyes include benzene rings.
Aromatic Hydrocarbons One derivative of Benzene is called phenylethene, or commonly named STYRENE. Foamed styrene is trademarked by Dow Chemical as “styrofoam” Other manufacturers items usually just called “foam cups” CH CH 2
Aromatic Hydrocarbons Benzene derivatives can have two or more substitutents: –1,2-dimethylbenzene –1,3-dimethylbenzene –1,4-dimethylbenzene Can use ortho for 1,2; meta for 1,3; and para for 1,4 (page 711) C C C C

Natural Gas Fossil fuels provide much of the world’s energy Natural gas and petroleum contain mostly the aliphatic (or straight- chain) hydrocarbons – formed from marine life buried in sediment of the oceans Natural gas is an important source of alkanes of low molecular mass
Natural Gas Natural gas is typically: –80% methane, 10% ethane, 4% propane, and 2% butane with the remainder being nitrogen and higher molar mass hydrocarbons –also contains a small amount of He, and is one of it’s major sources
Natural Gas Natural gas is prized for combustion, because with adequate oxygen, it burns with a hot, clean blue flame: –CH 4 + 2O 2 CO 2 + 2H 2 O + heat Incomplete burning has a yellow flame, due to glowing carbon parts, as well as making carbon monoxide
Petroleum The compounds found in petroleum (or crude oil) are more complex than those in natural gas Usually straight-chain and branched-chain alkanes, with some aromatic compounds also Crude oil must be refined (separated) before being used
Petroleum It is separated by distillation into fractions, according to boiling pt. Fractions containing higher molar mass can be “cracked” into more useful shorter chain components, such as gasoline and kerosene –involves catalyst and heat –starts materials for plastics and paints
Natural Gas Wells are drilled to reach natural gas and petroleum. 22.5
Petroleum In fractional distillation, the crude oil is heated so that it vaporizes and rises through the fractionating column. The column is hotter at the bottom and cooler at the top. 22.5
Coal From huge fern trees and mosses decaying millions of years ago under great pressure of rocks / soil. Stages in coal formation: 1. Peat- soft, fibrous material much like decayed garden refuse; high water content. After drying will make a low-cost, smoky fuel
Coal 2. Lignite- peat left in the ground longer, loses it’s fibrous texture, and is also called brown coal –harder than peat; higher C content (50%); still has high water content 3. Bituminous, or soft coal- formed after more time; lower water content, higher C content (70- 80%)
Coal 4. Anthracite, or hard coal –carbon content exceeding 80%, making it an excellent fuel source Coal may be found close to the surface (strip-mined), or deep within the earth Pollutants from coal are common; soot and sulfur problems
Coal Coal Formation Coal formed when tree ferns and mosses died and were subjected to continued pressure and heat underground. 22.5
Coal Coal consists largely of condensed aromatic compounds of extremely high molar mass. These compounds have a high proportion of carbon compared with hydrogen. 22.5
Coal Coal is mined from both surface mines and underground mines. 22.5
BIG BRUTUS Dragline used to remove the overburden of a strip mining coal field near West Mineral, Kansas. Note the size of the man standing next to it.
Coal Coal may be distilled for many products –coal gas, coal tar, coke, and ammonia –further distilled into benzene, toluene, naphthalene, phenol- the aromatics –Coke is almost pure carbon; produces intense heat and little or no smoke, thus used in industrial processes
