Quiz 3 Winter 2017

Postby Chem_Mod » Thu Mar 02, 2017 10:04 pm

Quiz 3 covers material since Quiz 2:

Kinetics (Ch 15.11 onwards, Reaction profiles, Arrhenius equation and calculating activation energies)

Thermodynamics and Kinetics of Organic Reactions (Ch 4.1 to 4.4 from Introduction to Organic Chemistry, Problems: 1-10, 23-40)

Hydrocarbons (Ch 1 from Introduction to Organic Chemistry: But read and do only the homework problems for the two sections titled: ALKANES and CYCLOALKANES)

Quiz 3 covers pages 74 to 96 in the course reader.
For the last part (Hydrocarbons) it is only the sections titled ALKANES and CYCLOALKANES in Chapter 1.

For kinetics, what part of the book is on the quiz? Does "Reaction profiles, Arrhenius equation and calculating activation energies" mean that it is only 15.11 and 15.13, or will the rest of chapter 15 be on the quiz?

Also, just to be clear, is Catalysis on there?

Will we need to know about Alkenes for quiz 3? we didn't talk about naming them or really anything about them in class but they are in section 1.3. Also section 1.4 about Geometric isomers and section 1.5 about alkynes were not covered in the course reader. Will we need to know about all of these things? The reading above says we should read chapter 1 section 1-6 and 11, but 3-5 were not covered. Will we also need to know section 1.11, Cycloalkenes? We only discussed cycloalkanes

These pages cover alkanes and cycloalkanes.

Therefore, in Chapter 1 read and do only the homework problems for the two sections titled:
ALKANES
CYCLOALKANES

Are you referring to #6? Nucleophiles are species rich in electrons. For the benzene ring, this electron richness comes from its double bonds. For the oxygen in the center of the compound can only be attached to each carbon by single bonds (since each carbon is already bonded to three hydrogens); thus, the oxygen must have two lone pairs of electrons in order to satisfy the octet rule.

4-butyl should be the correct answer because you’re supposed to number the carbons in the chain from the end that gives the substituents the lowest numbers. In this case, you start from the top left carbon of the cyclohexane structure and number the rest of the carbons in a counterclockwise manner. Butyl will be located on the fourth carbon.

Br2 acts as an electrophile because it is the one being attacked by the ethene, which has a double bond, making it the nucleophile.

The line diagram has multiple double bonds which are made up of a pi bond. These pi bonds serve as areas of high electronegativity due to their being so many localized electrons at each pi bond. This make it attracted to positively charged things so it is a nucleophile.

For CH3OCH3, Oxygen is more electronegative than carbon so it is going to pull the electrons in the bond closer to itself giving the oxygen a partial negative charge and since it partially negative it will attract positively charged things so it is a nucleophile.

If you start counting at the top H3C then go around counterclockwise, you should get 4-butyl.

It is an electrophilic addition reaction because you are adding the HBr to the cholesterol. HBr when broken up has H+ as an electrophile and Br- as a nucleophile.

There are two steps because first you add the H+ to the cholesterol then in the second step you add the Br- to the cholesterol.

There are two transition states because there are two steps.

The rate limiting step, as we know is the slow step or the one requiring the a higher activation energy. Since the first step requires the breaking of the H-Br bond and the breaking of the double bond in cholesterol, it requires more energy than the second step which is forming a bond between Br- and the C+ in cholesterol.

There are two intermediates because if you were to write out the two steps, you would have two intermediates that were formed in the first step and then used up as reactants in the second step.


Hope this all made sense!!

Sue_Park_2D wrote:For number 1, I wrote down 4-isopropyldecane as my answer, but I don't understand why it can also be 4-(1-methleythyl) decane


the second answer would be if you're writing it by IUPAC rules.
you can see the isopropyl as a long ethane (that's your longest chain) with a methane coming out of the first carbon on the ethane chain. So it would be, 1-methyl-ethyl and then that whole substituent is on the fourth carbon in the longer chain, so it's 4 - (1-methyl-ethyl) decane

see the isopropyl as

C ........ C
....C......

(ignore the periods, i just wanted the spacing)
whats bolded is your longest chain in the substituent and you can see that the carbon in the first line on the left would be bonded to the carbon on the second line in the middle.
does that make sense?

we went through numbers 5-8 in class.. the only thing we havent is number seven when it says 2-butene. that just means you have a butene and then your double bond starts on your second carbon to your third carbon, but that reaction is an electrophilic addition reaction, which we went through in class. electrophilic addition is on pages 83--85 in the course reader, number 7's reaction has a similar one on page 82, and you can find more about electrophiles/nucleophiles in the textbook

The reason Br2 can act as an electrophile is due to electron-electron repulsion. Typically, Br2 is a non-polar species. However, when it encounters the pi electrons of an alkene at a high enough energy collision, the delocalized electrons repel the valence shell of the impacting Br, generating an instantaneous dipole moment that makes the attacking Br + and therefore an electrophile.

Can someone explain to me why CH3OCH3 is a nucleophile? My TA said that we should look at the center atom when determining whether a molecule is a nucleophike or electrophile. Assuming that oxygen is the central atom (?). Carbon is more electronegative than oxygen so the electrons are attracted more to the carbons. So oxygen should have a partial positive charge, right? Therefore, the molecule should an electrophile?

Nevermind, I was wrong. Oxygen is more electronegative than Carbon. Therefore, oxygen has a partial negative charge, thus making it a nucleophile.

The line diagram has multiple double bonds which are made up of a pi bond. These pi bonds serve as areas of high electronegativity due to their being so many localized electrons at each pi bond. This make it attracted to positively charged things so it is a nucleophile.

For CH3OCH3, Oxygen is more electronegative than carbon so it is going to pull the electrons in the bond closer to itself giving the oxygen a partial negative charge and since it partially negative it will attract positively charged things so it is a nucleophile.


Isn't the formal charge on each carbon for the first compound +1, making it an electrophile?

I guess I should really try to be prepared for anything, but how much of the quiz 2 kinetics material will be necessary to work with the kinetics material on quiz 3? I know we won't be tested on quiz 2 material unless it is used to answer a quiz 3 question, but how much of quiz 2 do we need to know for this?

If we are asked to write out the name of a structure, do we have to do the italicizing thing and would we lose points if we forget the dash or we accidentally add a space in between the words (ethyl butane vs ethylbutane etc.)? I know these are minor questions but still I'm curious.

I covered them in class and you will see them in Chem 14C, Chem 14CL, and Chem 14D. Faculty teaching these organic classes tell me my students are the best prepared! Same for the MCAT, etc.

As I announced in class Quiz 3 does not cover functional groups.

Are you referring to #6? Nucleophiles are species rich in electrons. For the benzene ring, this electron richness comes from its double bonds. For the oxygen in the center of the compound can only be attached to each carbon by single bonds (since each carbon is already bonded to three hydrogens); thus, the oxygen must have two lone pairs of electrons in order to satisfy the octet rule.


If the Oxygen is in the center though can't it polarize the bonds to make the Carbons delta positive, thereby making it an electrophile?

We did not cover Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution.

We did cover Bimolecular Nucleophilic Substitution (SN2). See lecture notes.

Bimolecular Nucleophilic Substitution is one type of Nucleophilic Substitution.
The only nucleophilic substitution we have done is Bimolecular Nucleophilic Substitution (SN2). See lecture notes.

In the organic chemistry text book, there are several assigned homework problems that have to do with identifying and naming alkenes and cycloalkenes. 1.25-1.29 ask to name this alkene or draw a structure of (Z)-3-methyl-3-heptene. I thought the quiz was only over alkanes and cycloalkanes but is there a chance that these kinds of questions will be on the quiz because they were assigned?

If by section mechanisms you mean where we split up for example an electrophilic addition reaction into two steps and draw arrows representing where the electrons are going, then yes you must know them.

In response to, "Why is the answer for #4, 4-butyl-1,2-dimethylcyclohexane and not 1,2-dimethyl,4-butylcyclohexane? When naming a compound, do the lower numbers go first?"

You list different substituents alphabetically, not based on the numbers. In this example, butyl comes before methyl because b comes before m.

It is: CH3 CH2 CH2 CH2 CH2 CH2 CH (off of this C there is CH(CH3)2) CH2 CH2 CH3
So there are 10 carbons on the main chain and CH(CH3)2 is the substituent off the 7th C

Correct, electrophiles are electrostatically attracted to electron rich species and regions. See pages 81 and 82 in the course reader and more examples in the organic textbook.

The reason that benzene is a nucleophile is because nucleophiles are identified by having an excess, or large amount, of electrons. Double bonds on the benzene ring attract compounds with a positive charge, so it is considered a nucleophile, since the "loosely bound pi electrons in double and triple bonds are more likely to be involved in a reaction as a nucleophile" (page 145, o-chem textbook). However, nucleophiles can sometimes be neutral, but mostly they will have lone pairs.

The reason we can't just say it's a propyl is because, if you draw out the substituent CH(CH3)2 you'll see that it has to be structured like an iso group -- that branching type. A propyl substituent would have only one CH3 -- at the end of the branch. This, however, has two CH3's, which means it's iso. That specific structure is why we need to specify "isopropyl" and not just "propyl"

For cycloalkanes with more than two substituents, you must compare each individual number for each substituent:

1-butyl-3,4-dimethylcyclohexane (incorrect)
4-butyl-1,2-dimethylcyclohexane (correct)

Since your proposed answer has 1,3,4 while the correct answer has 1,2,4, the second answer is correct because 2 is less than 3. The lowest number in each case is one, but the second answer has a lower second number (2) than the first answer (3), so the second answer is correct.
