Dat organic

Alcohols and ether

naming alcohol C attached to OH should have lowest number, suffix "ol"
bp and mp are ______ than norm hydrocarbons Higher
strong acid _____ ka but ______pkas high, small
_______ substitutes increase acidity on phenol electron withdrawing
Water + alkene H add to least sub C and OH to more sub C
CH3MgBr + aldehyde =O turns to OH and CH3 added to the C which had the carbonyl
oxidize prim alcol is ______ aldehyde
oxidize sec alco is ketone
LAH ( LiAlH) + carboxylic acid R-C=O \OH removes the carbonyl to form alcohol
NaBH4 + aldehydes adds H to C=O to form C-OH
alcohol + H2SO4 + heat minor(= less sub C) and major alkene ( = more sub C)--> E1
when can alcohol undergo substitution 1.Protonated 2.converted to Tosylate 3.Form ester
Bulky alchol + HBr SN1- substitutes OH with Br
Alcohol + SOCl2 forms alkyl chloride
primary alcohol + PCC c-OH to C=O
sec alcohol + Na2Cr2O7 C-OH to C=O
primary alcohol + CrO3 C-OH to C=O \OH
phenols + Na2Cr2O7 OH to =O and the double bonds rearranged in the ring
gen formula for ether ROR
naming ethers prefix- smaller chain, suffix- larger chain "alkoxy " "alkane"
Williamso ether synthesis metal alkoxides + primary alkyl halides/ tosylates
alkoxides attack only _____ halides non hindered
____ + mcpba = oxirane alkene
Ether + O2 ROOR (peroxides)
non hindered ether + Hbr alkyly halide + alcohol (Sn2)
bulky ether + Hbr alkyl halide, (Sn1)
epoxide + HBr most subst C gets Br/ halide
epoxide + Base (Br-) least subst C gets halide
grignard (chrMgBr) reacts with alcohols only in acidid conditions
HBr + _______ alcohols form low yield substitution but high yield alkene secondary and tertiary alcohols
KMno4 will not react with ___ alcohol tertiary

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then tap the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, tap the green Know box. Otherwise, tap the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, tap "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just tap on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
