- Slide 6
- What is the ketone functional group?
- Slide 7
- Name the following molecules: PropanalMethylpropanal Methanal Propanone Pentan-3-one Methylbutanon e
- Slide 8
- Slide 9
- Describe and explain the boiling point of carbonyl compounds, referring to the type of bonding. Methanal is a gas and the other carbonyl compounds are liquid at room temperature. The molecule are polar, so dipole-dipole forces as well as van der Waals forces exist between them. Intermolecular hydrogen bonding is not possible because neither aldehydes nor ketones have a hydrogen atom that is sufficiently +. This causes them to: Have higher boiling points than alkanes and alkenes Have lower boiling points than alcohols
- Slide 10
- Describe and explain the solubility of carbonyl compounds in water. The lower members of both aldehydes and ketones are soluble in water. This solubility is due to the hydrogen bonding between the lone pair of electron in the - oxygen in the carbonyl compound and the + hydrogen in a water molecule. Solubility decreases as the number of carbons increases because the hydrocarbon tail is hydrophobic. ++-- O H H OH H ++ ++
- Slide 11
- Describe the smell of carbonyl compounds. The lower members of the homologous series of aldehydes have pungent odours. Ketones have much sweeter smells than aldehydes.
- Slide 12
- Slide 13
- Describe the preparation of aldehydes and give the equation for the preparation of ethanal. Reagents:Primary alcohol Potassium dichromate (VI) in dilute sulfuric acid Conditions:Temperature of about 60C Distil of product as it forms Observation:Colour change from orange to green as dichromate (VI)is reduced to chromium (III) Aldehydes are prepared by the partial oxidation of a primary alcohol
- Slide 14
- Describe the preparation of ketones and give the equation for the preparation of propanone. Reagents:Secondary alcohol Potassium dichromate (VI) in dilute sulfuric acid Conditions:Heat under reflux When reaction has finished, distil off product Observation:Colour change from orange to green as dichromate (VI)is reduced to chromium (III) Aldehydes are prepared by the oxidation of a secondary alcohol
- Slide 15
- Slide 16
- Describe and explain the differences between aldehydes and ketones with respect to oxidation. Aldehydes are readily oxidised whereas ketones are not. This is due to the presence of the hydrogen atom on the C=O in aldehydes which is very easily oxidised When an aldehyde is oxidised:
- Slide 17
- Describe the reaction of aldehydes with Fehlings/Benedicts solution and give an equation involving ethanal. When an aldehyde is warmed with Fehlings/Benedicts solution it is oxidised. The solution is alkaline so the salt of the carboxylic acid is produced. The blue solution is reduced to a red precipitate of copper oxide. Both Fehlings and Benedicts contain copper (II) complexes. N.B. With ketones there is no reaction and the solution stays blue.
- Slide 18
- Describe the reaction of aldehydes with Tollens reagent and give an equation involving ethanal. Tollens reagent is made by adding a few drops of sodium hydroxide to silver nitrate solution and then dissolving the precipitate in dilute ammonia. When a few drops of Tollens are added to the aldehyde and the mixture is warmed gently, the aldehyde is oxidised. Because the solution is alkaline the salt of the carboxylic acid is formed. The colourless Tollens reagent is reduced to give a silver mirror. N.B. With ketones there is no reaction and the solution stays colourless.
- Slide 19
- Describe the reaction of aldehydes with acidified potassium dichromate (VI) and give an equation involving ethanal. When heated with the acidified potassium dichromate the aldehyde is oxidised to a carboxylic acid. The orange potassium dichromate (VI) is reduced to green Cr (III) N.B. With ketones there is no reaction and the solution stays orange.
- Slide 20
- Slide 21
- Describe the reduction of an aldehyde, including the equation for the reduction of ethanal. Reducing agent: Lithium tetrahydridoaluminate (III), LiAlH 4 The LiAlH 4 acts as a source of H - ions which add on to the + carbon atom at this point the reactants must be kept dry so it is carried out in ether solution. Next, a solution of aqueous acid is added which protonates the O - formed in the first step. A primary alcohol is formed.
- Slide 22
- Describe the reduction of an aldehyde, including the equation for the reduction of propanone. Reducing agent: Lithium tetrahydridoaluminate (III), LiAlH 4 The LiAlH 4 acts as a source of H - ions which add on to the + carbon atom at this point the reactants must be kept dry so it is carried out in ether solution. Next, a solution of aqueous acid is added which protonates the O - formed in the first step. A secondary alcohol is formed.
- Slide 23
- Why does LiAlH 4 reduce carbonyl compounds but not alkenes? LiAlH 4 is a reducing agent that reacts specifically with polar - bonds.
- Slide 24
- Slide 25
- State and explain the conditions needed for the reaction between hydrogen cyanide and a carbonyl compound. pH 8 this provides the CN - ion catalyst
- Slide 26
- Draw the mechanism for the reaction of hydrogen cyanide and ethanal. 2-hydroxy-propanenitrile
- Slide 27
- Draw the mechanism for the reaction of hydrogen cyanide and propanone. 2-hydroxy-2- methylpropanenitrile
- Slide 28
- What is the difference between the two reactions? The ketone reaction happens at a slower rate.
- Slide 29
- Describe the mechanism for the reaction of hydrogen cyanide and a carbonyl compound. The lone pair of electrons on the carbon atom of the CN - ion form a bond with the + carbon atom in the carbonyl compound. At the same time, the -electrons in the C=O group move to the oxygen atom. The anion formed in the first step removes a proton from an HCN molecule to form the organic product and regenerate the CN - catalyst.
- Slide 30
- Why is it important that the pH is neither too high or too low? If it is too high there are not enough HCN molecules for the second step. If it is too low, there are not enough CN- ions for the first step.
- Slide 31
- Describe and explain the optical activity of the product when hydrogen cyanide adds on to a carbonyl compound. The product is a racemic mixture of both enatiomers so it does not rotate the plane of plane-polarised light. This is because the carbonyl compound is planar around the C=O group so the cyanide ion can attack from above or below the plane.
- Slide 32
- Slide 33
- Describe how carbonyl compounds react with compounds containing an H 2 N- group. The lone pair of electrons on the nitrogen atom acts a nucleophile and forms a bond with the + carbon atom in the C=O group. A water molecule is then lost and a C=N bond is formed.
- Slide 34
- Describe how 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine can be used to test for a carbonyl group. Add a few drops of 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine to a solution of the compound. Simple aldehydes and ketones give a yellow precipitate. Aromatic aldehydes and ketones give an orange precipitate.
- Slide 35
- Give the overall equation for the reaction between a carbonyl compound and 2,4- dinitrophenylhydrazine.
- Slide 36
- What type of reaction occurs and what type of mechanism is it? Condensation reaction with the loss of a water molecule Addition- elimination
- Slide 37
- Describe how you can make and purify a derivative of a carbonyl compound using 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine.
- Slide 38
- Explain how this removes impurities. In step 2 the derivative will recrystallise but the impurities will remain in solution. The third step, washing with cold solvent, will then rinse of any impurities that did crystallise.
- Slide 39
- How can the purified product be used to identify the original carbonyl compound? Find the melting temperature and compare to known data.
- Slide 40
- Slide 41
- What is the reaction of carbonyl compounds with iodine in alkali called? The iodoform reaction
- Slide 42
- What type of carbonyl compounds undergo the iodoform reaction? Ethanal and methyl ketones
- Slide 43
- Describe how to carry out the iodoform reaction, including observations. Warm the organic substance with either: A mixture of iodine and NaOH solution A solution of potassium iodide in sodium chlorate (I) A pale yellow precipitate forms Medical smell
- Slide 44
- Describe how the iodoform reaction occurs, including equations. Sodium hydroxide solution is added to iodine solution to form iodate (I) ions: These substitute into the CH 3 group next to the C=O group, forming a CI 3 C=O group. The three halogen atoms and the oxygen atom have an electron-withdrawing effect which weakens and breaks the -bond between the two carbon atoms, forming iodoform:
- Slide 45
- Write the overall equation for the iodoform reaction.
