Aromaticity Aromaticity Presentation Transcript

  • AROMATICITY By Cyril Mangan
  • Subject Index Aromatic compounds Hϋckel’s law Delocalization NMR characteristics
  • What are aromatic compounds ?Distinctive odour. Eg. Wintergreen oil Cinnamon Vanilla
  • Benzene and benzenederivatives are known asaromatic compounds.
  • Hϋckel’s Law• If the compound is cyclic,planar, fullyconjugated & posses (4n +2) π electrons,then it is an aromatic compound.• If the compound is cyclic, planar, fullyconjugated & posses 4n π electrons, thenit is an anti-aromatic compound.where n is any integer like 1,2,3,……..
  • Anti-aromaticAromaticAnti-aromatic Non-aromatic
  • Cyclopentadiene Cyclopentadienyl cationNon-aromatic Anti-aromatic Cyclopentadienyl anion Aromatic
  • Cycloheptatriene Cycloheptatrienyl cation Cycloheptatrienyl anionNon-aromatic Aromatic Anti-aromatic
  • Aromaticity The term aromaticity is used to describe aromatic compounds properties:• Highly stable.• Undergoes substitution reaction rather than addition reaction.• The C-C bond length (1.39Å), intermediate between single (1.47Å)& double (1.34Å) bonds.
  • Delocalization: All C atoms are sp2 hybridized
  • Molecular orbital diagram
  • Bonding orbitals
  • Doughnut shaped structure
  • MOD of cyclobutadiene
  • NMR characteristics Aromatic compounds are called diatropic. It can sustain a induced ring current.Protons on the ring are deshielded whileprotons above & below the plain ofmolecule are shielded.Protons of benzene are located at 7-8ʆ.
  • NMR characteristics of anti-aromatic compounds• Anti aromatic compounds show paramagnetic ring current.• Protons on the ring are shielded while protons above & below the plan of molecule are deshielded.
  • Questions ???????
  • Bibliography March’s Advanced organic chemistry. Advanced Organic Chemistry Part A - Structure and Mechanisms, 5th ed (2007) - Carey & Sundberg www.picospin.com www.wikipedia.com www.wikictionary.com
