Lecture6: 123.312

  1. 1. FUNCTIONALGROUP 123.312 looked at substrate (R-LG)... INTERCONVERSIONS functional group CHAPTER9 interconversions Nuc R LG R Nuc CHAPTER nine c–c bond formation: previously we looked at enolates the substrate & which leaving groups were good in substitution reactions E 1 2 now look at c-based nucleophiles 3 we’ll concentrate on... enolates formation O O O :base H O pKa = 19 easily prepared by deprotonation of the !- ©alfred sim@flickr hydrogen 4 5 6 enolates stable as electrons spread out... it is easier to deprotonate a 1,3- diketone O O O O O pKa = 9 O O :base H H H two resonance forms. The anion residing on the oxygen contributes the most to the resonance hybrid (or is the more p pKa of acetone is 19 so this is much easier ‘realistic’ if you like) (remember it is a log scale) 7 8 9
  2. 2. resonance stablisation (delocalisation) the normal representation... O O O O O O H H H O O O another question oxygen is more more resonance spread charge over electronegative so forms more stable H more atoms more charge more associated stable with o ©horia varlan@flickr 10 11 12 ...but the majority of neutral MO theory can give us the answer electrphiles react at carbon... O Elec ©e-magic@flickr 13 14 15 overall, there is more charge / carbon has bigger coefficient in carbon has bigger coefficient in electron density on oxygen but... homo homo oxygen has greater soft hard charge overall, but in nucleophile nucleophile the highest occupied (big charge O molecular orbital (HOMO) the carbon has greatest charge O so electrophiles with small volume) little charge & low lying LUMO react at carbon O neutral/weakly highly charged charged electrophiles electrophiles 16 17 18
  3. 3. carbon has bigger coefficient in if you want a good introduction to SOft electrophiles... homo molecular orbital theory (for hard organic chemists not theoreticians soft then ian Fleming’s book is a must nucleophile nucleophile (big charge small volume) O O H3C I CH3 O soft electrophile reacts with soft nucleophile (the in other words it is carbon) iodomethane is considered pearson’s Hard soft soft as iodine is big & acid base at work... diffuse 19 20 21 hard electrophiles... stable as electrons spread out... stability of other O O enolates... Ph pKa = 12.7 O O Me lets get back to deprotonations & O Ph O H H O OEt :base Ph O H O OEt H3C OMs forming enolates pKa = 13 slightly less acidic O O hard electrophile reacts as ester can donate electrons with hard nucleophile (the from oxygen lone pair but very Ph OEt oxygen) hard as charge/electrons little difference concentrated in a small H volume 22 23 24 stability of other O O stability of other O O good indicator of ease of deprotonation enolates... enolates... pKa Ph Ph pKa = 12.7 pKa = 12.7 O O O O O O N N C C N N Ph Ph Ph O Ph O :base :base H H H H H H pKa = 10.2 pKa = 7.7 O O O N C nitro group is strong N nitrile strong electron Ph EWG. Both an inductive & Ph O withdrawing group (EWG) so resonance effect It is a good guide proton more acidic H H but not perfect... 25 26 27
  4. 4. base must have enolate formation which base do we use? conjugate acid with pKa higher than carbonyl O pKa pKa base O H base O H H base > the general formula in english...the base is easy, but... 28 ©marcarena c.@flickr 29 must be more basic! H 30 base must have is ethoxide sufficiently strong? look at pKa... conjugate acid with pKa higher than carbonyl O O pKa pKa O ? O O H OEt OEt OEt > OEt H H > H H H base pKa = 15-16 pKa = 11 conjugate acid of ethoxide the base must want to (ethanol) has a higher pKa than hold on to the proton more than the acid does H 31 32 carbonyl so it will take the proton 33 it is a good choice... can we use what about...? methoxide (Meo-)? O ? O O O O OEt OEt OEt H OEt OEt H H H H start to try & think about the chemistry & not just learn facts 34 35 36
  5. 5. look at pKa... no enolate formation... what about...? KETONE (CONJUGATE ACID OF ENOLATE) IS MORE BASIC (HIGHER pKa than ethoxide/ethanol) so we do not get O deprotonation O x Li ? H OEt > OEt O H OEt O Bu H H H pKa = 15-16 pKa = 26.5 37 38 39 look at pKa... theoretically possible... Text Li Bu O Li Li Li Bu H Bu > O H Bu O H Bu H pKa = 48-51 pKa = 26.5 base has high enough pKa so can cause deprotonation... ©caramdir@flickr problem! 40 41 42 competing addition Li Li O Bu O Li O Bu H H ? the solution start to try & think about the chemistry & not just learn facts 43 44 45

Li Li Li N O H NiPr2 Li > O NiPr2 H O N H H pKa = 36 pKa = 26.5 size of lda means it does much higher pKa so not attack carbonyl readily deprotonates ketone therefore... 49 50 51 Silyl enol ethers allow the use of weak bases SiR3 O H R3Si Cl O SiR3 a second O these allow the use of H Et3N: solution a weak base to form the enolate equivalent they rely on the SiR3 strength of the si-O bond O to activate the carbonyl this is an enolate equivalent or a compound that reacts like an enolate 52 53 54
