Slide 1 - Chapter 17: Alcohols and Phenols Based on McMurry’s Organic Chemistry, 7th edition
Slide 2 - 2 Alcohols and Phenols Alcohols contain an OH group connected to a a saturated C (sp3) They are important solvents and synthesis intermediates Phenols contain an OH group connected to a carbon in a benzene ring Methanol, CH3OH, called methyl alcohol, is a common solvent, a fuel additive, produced in large quantities Ethanol, CH3CH2OH, called ethyl alcohol, is a solvent, fuel, beverage Phenol, C6H5OH (“phenyl alcohol”) has diverse uses - it gives its name to the general class of compounds OH groups bonded to vinylic, sp2-hybridized carbons are called enols
Slide 3 - 3 Why this Chapter? To begin to study oxygen-containing functional groups These groups lie at the heart of biological chemistry
Slide 4 - 4 17.1 Naming Alcohols and Phenols General classifications of alcohols based on substitution on C to which OH is attached Methyl (C has 3 H’s), Primary (1°) (C has two H’s, one R), secondary (2°) (C has one H, two R’s), tertiary (3°) (C has no H, 3 R’s),
Slide 5 - 5 IUPAC Rules for Naming Alcohols Select the longest carbon chain containing the hydroxyl group, and derive the parent name by replacing the -e ending of the corresponding alkane with -ol Number the chain from the end nearer the hydroxyl group Number substituents according to position on chain, listing the substituents in alphabetical order
Slide 6 - 6 Naming Phenols Use “phenol” (the French name for benzene) as the parent hydrocarbon name, not benzene Name substituents on aromatic ring by their position from OH
Slide 7 - 7 17.2 Properties of Alcohols and Phenols The structure around O of the alcohol or phenol is similar to that in water, sp3 hybridized Alcohols and phenols have much higher boiling points than similar alkanes and alkyl halides A positively polarized OH hydrogen atom from one molecule is attracted to a lone pair of electrons on a negatively polarized oxygen atom of another molecule This produces a force that holds the two molecules together These intermolecular attractions are present in solution but not in the gas phase, thus elevating the boiling point of the solution
Slide 8 - 8 Properties of Alcohols and Phenols: Acidity and Basicity Weakly basic and weakly acidic Alcohols are weak Brønsted bases Protonated by strong acids to yield oxonium ions, ROH2+
Slide 9 - 9 Alcohols and Phenols are Weak Brønsted Acids Can transfer a proton to water to a very small extent Produces H3O+ and an alkoxide ion, RO, or a phenoxide ion, ArO
Slide 10 - 10 Acidity Measurements The acidity constant, Ka, measures the extent to which a Brønsted acid transfers a proton to water [A] [H3O+] Ka = ————— and pKa = log Ka [HA] Relative acidities are more conveniently presented on a logarithmic scale, pKa, which is directly proportional to the free energy of the equilibrium Differences in pKa correspond to differences in free energy Table 17.1 presents a range of acids and their pKa values
Slide 11 - 11 pKa Values for Typical OH Compounds
Slide 12 - 12 Relative Acidities of Alcohols Simple alcohols are about as acidic as water Alkyl groups make an alcohol a weaker acid The more easily the alkoxide ion is solvated by water the more its formation is energetically favored Steric effects are important
Slide 13 - 13 Inductive Effects Electron-withdrawing groups make an alcohol a stronger acid by stabilizing the conjugate base (alkoxide)
Slide 14 - 14 Generating Alkoxides from Alcohols Alcohols are weak acids – requires a strong base to form an alkoxide such as NaH, sodium amide NaNH2, and Grignard reagents (RMgX) Alkoxides are bases used as reagents in organic chemistry
Slide 15 - 15 Phenol Acidity Phenols (pKa ~10) are much more acidic than alcohols (pKa ~ 16) due to resonance stabilization of the phenoxide ion Phenols react with NaOH solutions (but alcohols do not), forming salts that are soluble in dilute aqueous solution A phenolic component can be separated from an organic solution by extraction into basic aqueous solution and is isolated after acid is added to the solution
Slide 16 - 16 Nitro-Phenols Phenols with nitro groups at the ortho and para positions are much stronger acids
Slide 17 - 17 17.3 Preparation of Alcohols: A Review Alcohols are derived from many types of compounds The alcohol hydroxyl can be converted to many other functional groups This makes alcohols useful in synthesis
Slide 18 - 18 Review: Preparation of Alcohols by Regiospecific Hydration of Alkenes Hydroboration/oxidation: syn, non-Markovnikov hydration Oxymercuration/reduction: Markovnikov hydration
Slide 19 - 19 1,2-Diols Review: Cis-1,2-diols from hydroxylation of an alkene with OsO4 followed by reduction with NaHSO3 Trans-1,2-diols from acid-catalyzed hydrolysis of epoxides
Slide 20 - 20 17.4 Alcohols from Reduction of Carbonyl Compounds Reduction of a carbonyl compound in general gives an alcohol Note that organic reduction reactions add the equivalent of H2 to a molecule
Slide 21 - 21 Reduction of Aldehydes and Ketones Aldehydes gives primary alcohols Ketones gives secondary alcohols
Slide 22 - 22 Reduction Reagent: Sodium Borohydride NaBH4 is not sensitive to moisture and it does not reduce other common functional groups Lithium aluminum hydride (LiAlH4) is more powerful, less specific, and very reactive with water Both add the equivalent of “H-”
Slide 23 - 23 Mechanism of Reduction The reagent adds the equivalent of hydride to the carbon of C=O and polarizes the group as well
Slide 24 - 24 Reduction of Carboxylic Acids and Esters Carboxylic acids and esters are reduced to give primary alcohols LiAlH4 is used because NaBH4 is not effective
Slide 25 - 25 17.5 Alcohols from Reaction of Carbonyl Compounds with Grignard Reagents Alkyl, aryl, and vinylic halides react with magnesium in ether or tetrahydrofuran to generate Grignard reagents, RMgX Grignard reagents react with carbonyl compounds to yield alcohols
Slide 26 - 26 Reactions of Grignard Reagents with Carbonyl Compounds
Slide 27 - 27 Reactions of Esters and Grignard Reagents Yields tertiary alcohols in which two of the substituents carbon come from the Grignard reagent Grignard reagents do not add to carboxylic acids – they undergo an acid-base reaction, generating the hydrocarbon of the Grignard reagent
Slide 28 - 28 Grignard Reagents and Other Functional Groups in the Same Molecule Can't be prepared if there are reactive functional groups in the same molecule, including proton donors
Slide 29 - 29 Mechanism of the Addition of a Grignard Reagent Grignard reagents act as nucleophilic carbon anions (carbanions, : R) in adding to a carbonyl group The intermediate alkoxide is then protonated to produce the alcohol
Slide 30 - 30 17.6 Reactions of Alcohols Conversion of alcohols into alkyl halides: 3˚ alcohols react with HCl or HBr by SN1 through carbocation intermediate 1˚ and 2˚ alcohols converted into halides by treatment with SOCl2 or PBr3 via SN2 mechanism
Slide 31 - 31
Slide 32 - 32 Conversion of Alcohols into Tosylates Reaction with p-toluenesulfonyl chloride (tosyl chloride, p-TosCl) in pyridine yields alkyl tosylates, ROTos Formation of the tosylate does not involve the C–O bond so configuration at a chirality center is maintained Alkyl tosylates react like alkyl halides
Slide 33 - 33 Stereochemical Uses of Tosylates The SN2 reaction of an alcohol via a tosylate, produces inversion at the chirality center The SN2 reaction of an alcohol via an alkyl halide proceeds with two inversions, giving product with same arrangement as starting alcohol
Slide 34 - 34 Dehydration of Alcohols to Yield Alkenes The general reaction: forming an alkene from an alcohol through loss of O-H and H (hence dehydration) of the neighboring C–H to give  bond Specific reagents are needed
Slide 35 - 35 Acid- Catalyzed Dehydration Tertiary alcohols are readily dehydrated with acid Secondary alcohols require severe conditions (75% H2SO4, 100°C) - sensitive molecules don't survive Primary alcohols require very harsh conditions – impractical Reactivity is the result of the nature of the carbocation intermediate
Slide 36 - 36 Dehydration with POCl3 Phosphorus oxychloride in the amine solvent pyridine can lead to dehydration of secondary and tertiary alcohols at low temperatures An E2 via an intermediate ester of POCl2 (see Figure 17.7)
Slide 37 - 37 Conversion of Alcohols into Esters
Slide 38 - 38 17.7 Oxidation of Alcohols Can be accomplished by inorganic reagents, such as KMnO4, CrO3, and Na2Cr2O7 or by more selective, expensive reagents
Slide 39 - 39 Oxidation of Primary Alcohols To aldehyde: pyridinium chlorochromate (PCC, C5H6NCrO3Cl) in dichloromethane Other reagents produce carboxylic acids
Slide 40 - 40 Oxidation of Secondary Alcohols Effective with inexpensive reagents such as Na2Cr2O7 in acetic acid PCC is used for sensitive alcohols at lower temperatures
Slide 41 - 41 Mechanism of Chromic Acid Oxidation Alcohol forms a chromate ester followed by elimination with electron transfer to give ketone The mechanism was determined by observing the effects of isotopes on rates
Slide 42 - 42 17.8 Protection of Alcohols Hydroxyl groups can easily transfer their proton to a basic reagent This can prevent desired reactions Converting the hydroxyl to a (removable) functional group without an acidic proton protects the alcohol
Slide 43 - 43 Methods to Protect Alcohols Reaction with chlorotrimethylsilane in the presence of base yields an unreactive trimethylsilyl (TMS) ether The ether can be cleaved with acid or with fluoride ion to regenerate the alcohol
Slide 44 - 44 Protection-Deprotection An example of TMS-alcohol protection in a synthesis
Slide 45 - 45 17.9 Phenols and Their Uses Industrial process from readily available cumene Forms cumene hydroperoxide with oxygen at high temperature Converted into phenol and acetone by acid
Slide 46 - 46 17.10 Reactions of Phenols The hydroxyl group is a strongly activating, making phenols substrates for electrophilic halogenation, nitration, sulfonation, and Friedel–Crafts reactions Reaction of a phenol with strong oxidizing agents yields a quinone Fremy's salt [(KSO3)2NO] works under mild conditions through a radical mechanism
Slide 47 - 47 Quinones in Nature Ubiquinones mediate electron-transfer processes involved in energy production through their redox reactions
Slide 48 - 48 17.11 Spectroscopy of Alcohols and Phenols Characteristic O–H stretching absorption at 3300 to 3600 cm1 in the infrared Sharp absorption near 3600 cm-1 except if H-bonded: then broad absorption 3300 to 3400 cm1 range Strong C–O stretching absorption near 1050 cm1 (See Figure 17.11) Phenol OH absorbs near 3500 cm-1
Slide 49 - 49 Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy 13C NMR: C bonded to OH absorbs at a lower field,  50 to 80 1H NMR: electron-withdrawing effect of the nearby oxygen, absorbs at  3.5 to 4 (See Figure 17-13) Usually no spin-spin coupling between O–H proton and neighboring protons on C due to exchange reactions with moisture or acids Spin–spin splitting is observed between protons on the oxygen-bearing carbon and other neighbors Phenol O–H protons absorb at  3 to 8
Slide 50 - 50 Mass Spectrometry Alcohols undergo alpha cleavage, a C–C bond nearest the hydroxyl group is broken, yielding a neutral radical plus a charged oxygen-containing fragment Alcohols undergo dehydration to yield an alkene radical anion
