Organic Chemistry II Ch 21 Klein Presentation Transcript

  • 1. 21.1 Introduction Carboxylic Acids
    Carboxylic acids are abundant in nature and in pharmaceuticals.

    21-1
  • 2. 21.1 Introduction Carboxylic Acids
    The US produces over 2.5 million tons of acetic acid per year, which is primarily used to produce vinyl acetate.
    Vinyl acetate is used in paints and adhesives.
    Carboxylic acid derivatives, such as vinyl acetate, are very common, and they play a central role in organic chemistry.

    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-2
  • 3. 21.2 Nomenclature of Carboxylic Acids
    Monocarboxylic acids are named with the suffix “oic acid.”
    The carbon of the carboxylic acid moiety is assigned the locant position 1.

    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-3
  • 4. 21.2 Nomenclature of Carboxylic Acids
    When the carboxylic acid group is attached to a ring, it is named as an alkane carboxylic acid.
    There are also many common names for carboxylic acids.

    21-4
  • 5. 21.2 Nomenclature of Carboxylic Acids
    Dicarboxylic acids are named with the suffix “dioic acid.”
    There are also many common names for dicarboxylic acids:

    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-5
  • 6. 21.3 Structure and Properties of Carboxylic Acids
    The carbon atom of the carboxylic acid has a trigonal planar geometry. WHY?
    The acid moiety is capable of strong hydrogen (H­) bonding including H-bonding between acid pairs.
    As a result, carboxylic acids generally have high boiling points.
    Consider the BPs of acetic acid (118 °C) and isopropanol (82 °C).

    21-6
  • 7. 21.3 Structure and Properties of Carboxylic Acids
    Carboxylate ions end in the suffix “oate.”
    Compounds that end in the suffix “oate” are often found in food ingredient lists as preservatives.
    NaOH is a strong base, so it is capable of reacting ≈100% with a carboxylic acid.

    21-7
  • 8. 21.3 Structure and Properties of Carboxylic Acids
    In water, the equilibrium generally favors the acid .
    pKa values mostly range between 4 and 5. What is pKa?
    Copyright 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-8
  • 9. 21.3 Structure and Properties of Carboxylic Acids
    How does the pKa value for a carboxylic acid compare to a strong acid like HCl, or a very weak acid like ethanol?
    H–Cl
    pKa= -7
    How can induction and resonance be used to explain the acidity of a carboxylic acid?
    Practice with CONCEPTUAL CHECKPOINTs 21.4 through 21.7.

    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-9
  • 10. 21.3 Structure and Properties of Carboxylic Acids
    Let’s examine the equilibrium between the carboxylic acid and the carboxylate at physiological pH (7.3).
    The acid and the conjugate base make a buffer. HOW?
    Recall that the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation can be used to calculate the pH of a buffer:
    Assuming the pKa is 4.3, calculate the ratio of carboxylate/acid.

    Copyright 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-21
  • 22. 21.6 Introduction to Carboxylic Acid Derivatives
    The reduction of acids with LAH or borane result in a decrease in the oxidation number for carbon. HOW?
    There are also many reactions where carboxylic acids don’t change their oxidation state.
    What criteria must Z fulfill so that there is no change in the oxidation state?
    Copyright 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-22
  • 23. 21.6 Introduction to Carboxylic Acid Derivatives
    When Z is a heteroatom, the compound is called a carboxylic acid derivative.
    Because it has the same oxidation state, a nitrile is also an acid derivative despite not having a carbonyl group.
    Copyright 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-23
  • 24. 21.6 Introduction to Carboxylic Acid Derivatives
    Acid halides and anhydrides are relatively unstable, so they are not common in nature; we will discuss their instability in detail later in this chapter.
    Some naturally occurring esters are known to have pleasant odors:

    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-35
  • 36. 21.7 Reactivity of Carboxylic Acid Derivatives
    Let’s examine the acid chloride:
    The electronegative chlorine enhances the electrophilic character of the carbonyl. HOW?
    There are 3 resonance contributors to the acid chloride:
    The chlorine does not significantly donate electron density to the carbonyl. HOW does that affect its quality as an electrophile.
    Copyright 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-36
  • 37. 21.7 Reactivity of Carboxylic Acid Derivatives
    Let’s examine the acid chloride:
    Describe how the presence of the chloride affects the sterics of the nucleophilic attack on the carbonyl.
    The chloride is a good leaving group, which also enhances its reactivity.
    Considering all of the factors involved, the acid chloride is quite reactive.
    Copyright 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-37

    Copyright 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-39
  • 40. 21.7 Reactivity of Carboxylic Acid Derivatives
    Nucleophilic acyl substitution is a two-step process.
    Because C=O double bonds are quite stable, the “loss of leaving group” step should occur if a leaving group is present.
    – H and –R do not qualify as leaving groups. WHY?
    Copyright 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-40

    21-41
  • 42. 21.7 Reactivity of Carboxylic Acid Derivatives
    Do NOT draw the acyl substitution with an SN2 mechanism.
    Sometimes a proton transfer will be necessary in the mechanism:
    Under acidic conditions, (–) charges rarely form. WHY?
    Under basic conditions, (+) charges rarely form. WHY?
    Copyright 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-42
  • 43. 21.7 Reactivity of Carboxylic Acid Derivatives

    The electrophile and nucleophile are both low in energy.
    Copyright 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-43
  • 44. 21.7 Reactivity of Carboxylic Acid Derivatives
    H3O+ is unstable and drives the equilibrium forward by starting the reaction mechanism.
    Now that the electrophile carries a (+) charge, it is much less stable (higher in energy). Complete the rest of the mechanism.
    Copyright 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-44
  • 45. 21.7 Reactivity of Carboxylic Acid Derivatives

    The OH– is the most unstable species in the reaction and drives the equilibrium forward.
    Continue the rest of the mechanism.
    Copyright 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
    Klein, Organic Chemistry 1e
    21-45
  • 46. 21.7 Reactivity of Carboxylic Acid Derivatives

    Ester hydrolysis can be catalyzed under acidic conditions.
    The carbonyl of the ester is protonated, and then a water acts as a nucleophile attacking the carbonyl carbon.

    Esters can also undergo aminolysis.
    The overall equilibrium favors the amide formation.
    Because of enthalpy or entropy?
    The synthetic utility is limited because the process is slow and because there are more efficient ways to synthesize amides.
