INDEX OF HYDROGEN DEFICIENCY THE BASIC THEORY OF THE BASIC THEORY OF INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY and
WHAT CAN YOU LEARN FROM A MOLECULAR FORMULA ? MOLECULAR FORMULA ? YOU CAN DETERMINE THE NUMBER OF RINGS AND / OR DOUBLE BONDS.
Saturated Hydrocarbons CH 4 C 5 H 12 C3H8C3H8 C 4 H 10 C2H6C2H6 C 9 H 20 C n H 2n+2 GENERAL FORMULA branched compounds also follow the formula
-2H -4H -2H FORMATION OF RINGS AND DOUBLE BONDS Formation of each ring or double bond causes the loss of 2H.
Determine the expected formula for a noncyclic, saturated compound ( C n H 2n+2 ) with the same number of carbon atoms as your compound. Correct the formula for heteroatoms Subtract the actual formula of your compound The difference in H’s divided by 2 is the Index of Hydrogen Deficiency CALCULATION METHOD (explained later) Index of Hydrogen-deficiency
C5H8C5H8 C 5 H 12 C5H8C5H8 H4H4 Index = 4/2 = 2 double bond and ring in this example = ( C n H 2n+2 ) Two Unsaturations
O or S -- doesn’t change H in calculated formula N or P -- add one H to the calculated formula F, Cl, Br, I -- subtract one H from calculated formula +0 +1 Index of Hydrogen Deficiency C-HC-X C-HC-O-H C-HC-NH 2 +N,+H -H,+X +O CORRECTIONS FOR ATOMS OTHER THAN HYDROGEN
C4H5NC4H5N C 4 H 10 C 4 H 11 N H6H6 Index = 6/2 = 3 two double bonds and ring in this example = ( C n H 2n+2 ) add one H for N C 4 H 5 N
The index gives the number of one ring and the equivalent of three double bonds gives an index of 4 If index = 4, or more, expect a benzene ring double bonds or triple bonds or rings in a molecule Benzene
PROBLEM A hydrocarbon has a molecular formula of C 6 H 8. It will react with hydrogen and a palladium catalyst to give a compound of formula C 6 H 12. Give a possible structure. INDEX C 6 H 14 -C 6 H 8 H6H6 Index = 6/2 = 3 C6H8C6H8 +2 H 2 C 6 H 12 HYDROGENATION Pd Hydrogenation shows only two double bonds. Therefore, there must also be a ring.
A FEW POSSIBLE ANSWERS..... there is still work required to fully solve the problem

Two major types : STRETCHING BENDING C C C C Molecular vibrations both of these types are “infrared active” ( excited by infrared radiation )

bond dissociation energy r avg distance energyenergy r min r max zero point energy vibrational energy levels (average bond length) BOND VIBRATIONAL ENERGY LEVELS Bonds do not have a fixed distance. They vibrate continually even at 0 o K (absolute). The frequency for a given bond is a constant. Vibrations are quantized as levels. The lowest level is called the zero point energy.

MATHEMATICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE OF THE VIBRATION IN A BOND VIBRATION IN A BOND …. assumes a bond is like a spring HARMONIC OSCILLATOR
HOOKE’S LAW x0x0 x1x1 xx K -F = K( x) m1m1 m2m2 K Molecule as a Hooke’s Law device restoring force = stretch compress force constant
Harmonic Oscillator Morse Curve (anharmonic) THE MORSE CURVE APPROXIMATES AN HARMONIC OSCILLATOR HOOKE’S LAW ACTUAL MOLECULE Using Hooke’s Law and the Simple Harmonic Oscillator approximation, the following equation can be derived to describe the motion of a bond…..

Only bonds which have significant dipole moments will absorb infrared radiation. Bonds which do not absorb infrared include: Symmetrically substituted alkenes and alkynes Many types of C-C Bonds Symmetric diatomic molecules H-H Cl-Cl
The carbonyl group is one of the strongest absorbers Also O-H and C-O bonds ++ -- STRONG ABSORBERS ++ -- ++ -- oscillating dipoles couple and energy is transferred infrared beam
RAMAN SPECTROSCOPY Another kind of vibrational spectroscopy that can detect symmetric bonds. Infrared spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy complement each other.
RAMAN SPECTROSCOPY In this technique the molecule is irradiated with strong ultraviolet light at the same time that the infrared spectrum is determined. Ultraviolet light promotes electrons from bonding orbitals into antibonding orbitals. This causes formation of a dipole in groups that were formerly IR inactive and they will absorb infrared radiation... ++ -- h UV * **.. transition absorbs IR induced dipole no dipole symmetric ….. we will not talk further about this technique
