Chapter 17 Carboxylic Acids and Their Derivatives Nucleophilic Addition Elimination at the Acyl Carbon Created by Professor William Tam amp Dr Philis Chang Ch 17 1 Abogt The Authors These PowerPoint Lecture Slides were created and prepared by Professor William Tam and his wife Dr Phillis Chang Professor William Tam received his BSc at the University of Hong Kong in 1990 and his PhD at the

first step is the ratedetermining step rds As soon as the tetrahedral intermediate is formed elimination usually occurs spontaneously to regenerate the carbonyl group a Thus both steric and electronic

Theory Revisited 5A Rules for Writing Resonance Structures 9 O O O Resonance structures exist only on paper Although they have no real existence of their own resonance structures are useful because they allow us to describe molecules radicals and ions for which a single Lewis structure is inadequate We connect these structures by double headed arrows lt gt and we say that the hybrid of all of them represents the real molecule radical or ion Ch 13 17 a In writing resonance structures we are only allowed to move electrons M N6 J V resonance structures H J V not resonance structures Ch 13 18 a All of the structures must be proper Lewis structures Jng Jaci 10 electrons W not a proper Lewis structure Ch 13 19 a All resonance structures must have the same number of unpaired electrons Ch 13 20 a All atoms that are part of the delocalized nelectron system must lie in a plane or be nearly planar delocalization of nelectrons delocalization of nelectrons Ch 13 21 a The energy of the actual molecule is lower than the energy that might be estimated for any contributing structure 3 Equivalent resonance structures make equal contributions to the hybrid and a system described by them has a large resonance stabilization Ch 13 22 a The more stable a structure is when taken by itself the greater is its contribution to the hybrid ema 3O ayic cation 20 ayic cation greater contribution Ch 13 23 SB Estimating the Relative Stability of Resonance Structures o The more covalent bonds a structure has the more stable it is 7H gt9 more stable less stable 9 W3 gt O more stable less stable Ch13 24 3 Structures in which all of the atoms have a complete valence shell of electrons ie the noble gas structure are especially stable and make large contributions to the hybrid 1 3 this carbon has this

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Janice Dongeun University of Washington

"I used the money I made selling my notes & study guides to pay for spring break in Olympia, Washington...which was Sweet!"

Bentley McCaw University of Florida

"I was shooting for a perfect 4.0 GPA this semester. Having StudySoup as a study aid was critical to helping me achieve my goal...and I nailed it!"
