Summary of Chapter 18: Reactions at the A- Carbon of Carbonyl Compounds

Many carbonyl compounds have a second site of reactivity—namely, a hydrogen bonded to a carbon that is adjacent to the carbonyl carbon. This hydrogen is sufficiently acidic to be removed by a strong base. The carbon adjacent to a carbonyl carbon is called an A -carbon so a hydrogen bonded to an a -carbon is called an A -hydrogen.

Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • absolute temperature scale.

    A temperature scale that uses the absolute zero of temperature as the lowest temperature. (5.3)

  • activated complex (transition state)

    The particular arrangement of atoms found at the top of the potential-energy barrier as a reaction proceeds from reactants to products. (Section 14.5)

  • alkene

    A compound that possesses a carbon-carbon double bond.

  • auxochrome

    When applying Woodward-Fieser rules, the groups attached to the chromophore.

  • Avogadro’s number (NA)

    The number of 12C atoms in exactly 12 g of 12C; it equals 6.022 * 1023 mol-1. (Section 3.4)

  • Chiral center

    A tetrahedral atom, most commonly carbon, that is bonded to four different groups; also called a chirality center

  • chromatogram

    In gas chromatography, a plot that identifies the retention time of each compound in the mixture.

  • dihydroxylation

    A reaction characterized by the addition of two hydroxyl groups (OH) across an alkene.

  • endothermic process

    A process in which a system absorbs heat from its surroundings. (Section 5.2)

  • Ground-state electron confi guration

    The lowest-energy electron confi guration for an atom or molecule.

  • heterogeneous catalyst

    A catalyst that does not dissolve in the reaction medium.

  • Imine

    A compound containing a carbon-nitrogen double bond, R2C"NR’; also called a Schiff base

  • matter waves

    The term used to describe the wave characteristics of a moving particle. (Section 6.4)

  • N terminus

    For a peptide chain,the end that contains the amino group.

  • organic chemistry

    The study of carbon-containing compounds, typically containing carbon–carbon bonds. (Section 2.9; Chapter 24:Introduction)

  • reductive amination

    The conversion of a ketone or aldehyde into an imine under conditions in which the imine is reduced as soon as it is formed, giving an amine.

  • spontaneous

    A reaction with a negative DG, which means that products are favored at equilibrium.

  • steric number

    The total of (single bonds + lone pairs) for an atom in a compound.

  • Wittig reaction

    A reaction that converts an aldehyde or ketone into an alkene, with the introduction of one or more carbon atoms.

  • Wolff-Kishner reduction

    Reduction of the C"O group of an aldehyde or ketone to a CH2 group using hydrazine and a base. Ylide (Section 16.6)
