Amines and Amides

  1. 1. 1Chapter 15Amines and Amides
  2. 2. 2IntroductionAmines and amides contain one or more nitrogen atoms.Amines have an amino group.Amides are the product of reaction between an amine and acarboxylic acid derivative.
  3. 3. 31. Amines: structure and propertiesAmines are organic derivatives of ammonia.They are basic, like ammonia.They are ammonia molecules with one or more of the hydrogensreplaced by an organic group.The amine structure is pyramidal, as is ammonia.R may be a hydrogen or an aliphatic or aromatic organic group.
  4. 4. 41. Amines: structure and properties
  5. 5. 51. Amines: structure and propertiesAmines are classified by the number of carbons directlybonded to the nitrogen atom:A primary amine has one: RNH2 = 1oA secondary amine has two: R2NH = 2oA tertiary amine has three: R3N = 3oVideo
  6. 6. 61. Amines: structure and propertiesDetermine the classification of each of the followingamines.pencast
  7. 7. 71. Amines: structure and propertiesAmines are more polar than hydrocarbons and less polarthan alcohols.Because N is less polar than O, solubility and boiling points arelower than corresponding alcoholsH-bonds are formed, but not as strongly as with –OH.

  12. 12. 121. Amines: nomenclaturePrimary aliphatic aminesFind the longest continuous carbon chain containing the aminegroup to get the parent compound.Drop the final –e of the parent name and add the suffix -amine.Number the parent chain to give the amine carbon the lowestpossible number.Name and number all substituents as usual.Secondary and tertiary aliphatic aminesAdd the prefix N-alkyl to the name of the parent for 2o and 3oamines.

  16. 16. 161. Amines: reactionsPreparation of aliphatic amines is by reduction of amides.Recall that reduction involves decreasing the number of bondsto oxygen and increasing the number of bonds to hydrogen.amide amine
  17. 17. 171. Amines: reactionsIf R’ = R’’ = H, a primary amine is produced.If R’ = H and R’’ = organic group, a secondary amine isproduced.If R’ = R’’ = organic group, a tertiary amine is produced.
  18. 18. 181. Amines: reactionsPreparation of primary aromatic amines is by reductionof nitro compounds.nitrobenzene aniline
  19. 19. 191. Amines: reactionsAmines react as weak bases in aqueous solution.“Weak” means only partially dissociated in solution.“Base” means proton (H+) acceptor.Water acts as the proton donor (acid).amine water alkylammoniumionhydroxide ion
  20. 20. 201. Amines: reactionsWhen an amine (a base) is neutralized by an acid, analkylammonium salt is produced.alkylammonium saltamine acid
  21. 21. 211. Amines: reactionsNaming alkylammonium saltsStart with the name of the amine.Replace the suffix –amine with –ammonium.Add the name of the anion.3-hexanamine 3-hexanammonium chloride
  22. 22. 221. Amines: reactionsWhat are the products of the following reactions?CH3CH2NHCH3 + H2O CH3NH2 + HBr pencast
  23. 23. 231. Amines: reactionsAn alkylammonium salt is the conjugate acid of thecorresponding amine. Therefore, alkylammonium saltswill react with hydroxide ions to produce the amine andwater.The salt is quite soluble in water because of the charged ions.The amine is only somewhat soluble in water.Video

  25. 25. 251. Amines: quaternary ammonium saltsAlkylammonium salts can be prepared from 1o, 2o, or 3oamines.The nitrogen atom is bonded to three, two, or one hydrogen(s),respectively.In quaternary ammonium salts, the nitrogen is bonded tofour organic groups.
  26. 26. 262. Heterocyclic aminesA cyclic compound with at least one nitrogen within aring structure is called a heterocyclic amine.Many heterocyclic amines are biologically important, orbiologically active.DNA, RNA, myoglobin, chlorophyllLSD, cocaine, nicotine, strychnine
