1 AN INTRODUCTION TO CARBOXYLIC ACIDS AND THEIR DERIVATIVES KNOCKHARDY PUBLISHING

2 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... www.argonet.co.uk/users/hoptonj/sci.htm 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 CARBOXYLIC ACIDS

15 101°C 118°C 141°C 164°C PHYSICAL PROPERTIES BOILING POINT Increases as size increases - due to increased van der Waals forces

16 Greater branching = lower inter-molecular forces = lower boiling point Boiling point is higher for “straight” chain isomers. 101°C 118°C 141°C 164°C 164°C 154°C PHYSICAL PROPERTIES BOILING POINT Increases as size increases - due to increased van der Waals forces

17 PHYSICAL PROPERTIES BOILING POINT Increases as size increases - due to increased van der Waals forces Carboxylic acids have high boiling points for their relative mass The effect of hydrogen bonding on the boiling point of compounds of similar mass CompoundFormulaM r b. pt.

18 PHYSICAL PROPERTIES BOILING POINT Increases as size increases - due to increased van der Waals forces Carboxylic acids have high boiling points for their relative mass arises from inter-molecular hydrogen bonding due to polar O—H bonds AN EXTREME CASE...

H 2 SO 4 is a dehydrating agent - it removes water causing the equilibrium to move to the right and thus increases the yield of the ester For more details see under ‘Reactions of carboxylic acids’

34 PREPARATION OF ESTERS - 2 Reagent(s)alcohol + acyl chloride Conditionsreflux under dry conditons Equation e.g. CH 3 OH (l) + CH 3 COCl (l) ——> CH 3 COOCH 3 (l) + HCl (g) methanol ethanoyl methyl chloride ethanoate NotesAcyl chlorides are very reactive but must be kept dry as they react with water

The reaction is safer - it is less exothermic. Acid anhydrides are less toxic.
