Create sulfide 2. Create benzene 3. Create iodobenzene 4. Create phenol 5. Create nitrile 6. Create bromobenzene ­uses SRN1 (substitution reaction nucleophilic 1 species generated) for creation of  bromobenzene, iodobenzene, and sulfide Nucleophilic Aromatic Substitution ­ Aromatic ring is electrophile ­ Need a good EWG to occur (cyano or MeF3) ­ Good bases are OH­, OMe­, OEt­, On­Pr­ ­ Attatck of 1,3 disubsitutued benzene leads to one product (meta) if R is EWG or  three products (para, meta, and ortho with a 1:2:1 ration) if R is neutral like Me ­ Attack of 1,4 disubstituted benzene leads to 50/50 mix of para and meta because R group is too far from LG to affect it  Different Reactions Discussed in class 1. Addition of Br2 to a double bond creates trans dibromo alkane  ­with a linear system it can be cis or trans ­with an aromatic system its just trans because of structure  2. if there is a solvent with addition of Br2, expect different products with  combinations of Br and solvent because solvent occurs in great quantities 3. addition of Br2 to alkyne creates a trans dibromo alkene 4. if there is a solvent with the addition of Br2 (such as AcOH) then expect different  products incorporating Br and OAc 5. addition of Br2 to diene will create a thermo product and a kinetic product 6. addition of Br2 with a radical  can create three different structures depending on  the conditions, 1­bromocyclohexane, 3,bromo­1­cyclohexene, 1,2­ dibromocyclohexane  7. reagent NBS = Br2 in small quantities so Br will be added on to part of the double  bond usually with part of the solvent  8. AlBN over heat will attach whatever reagent there is to the reactant using a radical mechanism 9. R3SnH means a radical dehalogenation  10. Barton­Mcombie Deoxygenation  ­ replaces OH with H ­uses PhOSCl or NaH, CS2, MeI and Bu3SnH, AlBN, heat 11. H+/H20 usually means hydration of a double bond 12. Hg(OAc)2 over NaBH4 will act the same as H+/H2O 13. BH3 and NaOH/H202 will also hydrate double bond 14. RCO3H means epoxidation of double bond 15. 1)TsCL/base 2)nucleophile means inversion of stereochemistry: converts bad  LG to good LG and inverts the stereochemistry 16. Mitsonobu Reaction uses DEAD  Ochem Exam 1 Study Guide  Rho value tells how big the charge in the transition sate is  If you chart rho, electron donating groups will have a negative value, and electron withdrawing groups will have a positive rho value  Rate of the reaction = rho times sigma  If there is a negative transition state, there will be a positive rho value which  means the electron withdrawing group stabilizes because there is an increased  negative charge for the reaction   Localized charge increases reactivity which means less stable and less acidic  group (localized is there is an electron donating group)  Delocalized charge decreases reactivity which means a more stable and more  acidic group (delocalized is there is an electron withdrawing group)  Sterics can mess up rho value  Kinetic Isotope Effect  Primary KIE is the reaction breaks the C­H bond  Value will be 6­7  Example is E2, ElCB irreversible, ElCB allylic   Normal secondary KIE is when the carbon goes from sp3 to sp2 conformation  Value is 1.1­1.4  Example is Sn2, Sn1, E1  Inverse secondary KIE is when the carbon goes from sp2 to 2p3 conformation  Value is .8­.9  Example is Sn2, Sn1, E1 Sn2 Sn1 Negative transition state Positive transition state Positive rho value Negative rho value Electron withdrawing groups are better Electron donating groups are better Increase in negative charge Stabilized   Positive charge with an electron withdrawing group increases size  Positive charge with an electron donating group decreases size  Negative charge with an electron withdrawing group decreases size  Negative charge with an electron donating group increases size   Electron donating group will increase pKa  Electron withdrawing group will decrease pKa  A bigger atom will be more basic  R effect is weaker than I effect because of pi bonds   +R effect, less acidic  ­R effect, more acidic  +I effect, less acidic  ­I effect, more acidic  Type Characteristics  Example  Soft acids low electronegativity, large Cu+, Ag+, I, Ch2 size, low charge Soft bases low electronegativity, large Alkenes, R2S, H­, RS­I­ size, high charge Hard acids High electronegativity, Co2, Fe3+, small size, high charge Hard bases High electronegativity, OH­, F­, Nr3­ small size, high charge Examples of Good answers   Water solvates charge better than EtOH hence charge is down and smaller  charge will have a smaller rho value  Sterics interfere so they rotate the bond and affect it  Stronger +R so electrons are less available and less basic  Better stabilized conjugate base so more acidic  Delocalize charged so the rate is lower
