Organic Chemistry

Define Hydrogenation addition of H2 to a multiple bond
Hydrogenation alkene to alkane
Notes on Hydrogenation syn addition
H2/Pd, Pt, or Ni Hydrogenation
How does heat affect stability? less heat = more stable more heat = less stable
Syn Addition two atoms or groups add to the same face of a double bond
Anti Addition atoms or groups add to opposite faces of the double bond
Stereoselectivity a reaction in which a single starting material can give two or more stereoisomeric products but yields one of them in greater amounts than the other
slowest to fastest rate of addition HF<<HCL<HBR<HI
weakest acid to strongest acid HI, HF, HCL, HBR HF<<HCL<HBR<HI
Markovnikov's Rule when an unsymmetrically substituted alkene reacts with a hydrogen halide, the hydrogen adds to the carbon that has the greater number o fhydrogesn, and the halogen adds to the carbon having fewer hydrogens
Name the mechanism and any rule that applies: CH3CH2CH=CH2 + HBR <acetic acid> CH3CH2CH(BR)CH3 Hydrohalogenation and markovnikov's rule
Define Hydrohalogenation is the electrophilic addition of hydrohalic acids like hydrogen chloride or hydrogen bromide to alkenes to yield the corresponding haloalkanes
