Organic Chemistry The unique chemistry of carbon Learning objectives Describe two reasons for abundance of carbon compounds Distinguish between inorganic and organic carbon and other compounds Distinguish between isomers and non-isomers Describe differences between optical and geometric isomerism Distinguish between aromatic and nonaromatic Identify common functional groups One element – one branch of chemistry Organic compounds based on carbon: 13 million and rising (fast)  100,000 new compounds synthesized annually All 91 other elements combined: only 300,000 compounds Factoids about carbon Fairly abundant in earth’s crust – but not enough to explain domination Highly significant to life Key element in the human organism – and all others “God’s goof”: The absence of stable mass C and O are abundant because the atom with mass is unstable Otherwise atom building after the Big Bang would have resulted in much heavier elements The thoughts of a cosmological atheist Fred Hoyle: “Some supercalculating intellect must have designed the properties of the carbon atom, otherwise the chance of my finding such an atom through the blind forces of nature would be utterly minuscule….The numbers one calculates from the facts seem to me so overwhelming as to put this conclusion almost beyond question” Organic and inorganic carbon Inorganic carbon: ionic compounds where carbon is incorporated as carbonate – CO32Organic carbon: compounds of carbon with itself, hydrogen and other elements – by far the most important Organic carbon forms a thin canopy Unique (?) conditions on earth that support life Earth’s surface organic Earth’s crust inorganic Vitalism and organic chemistry Inorganic compounds were salts of the earth  Stable and easily synthesized Organic compounds were of living organisms  Fragile and not easily synthesized Belief in Vitalism posited that only living organisms possessed a vital force necessary to create organic compounds In 1828 urea was synthesized and vitalism was on the way out Seven ages of man - many ages of a carbon atom  Combustion: C + O2  CO2  Neutralization by seawater: CO2 + Ca(OH)2  CaCO3 + H2O  Reaction with acid rain: CaCO3 + H2SO4  CO2  Photosynthesis: CO2  Organic compounds (OC)  Vegetation decomposes: OC  fossil fuels (FF)  Vegetation consumed by animal: OC  new compounds (proteins, DNA etc.)  Respiration: sugars  CO2 + energy  Industrialization: FF  C, CO2 + energy  Manufacturing: FF  Plastics, polymers, drugs etc  Waste disposal Fossil fuels, CO2 Optical isomers are important in nature Amino acids are building blocks of proteins Amino acids are chiral Proteins contain hundreds – thousands of amino acids Getting the correct isomer is a big deal Geometric isomers: Isomerism and a healthy diet What’s with all this trans fats anyway? Ask a Chicago Alderman Different geometry - same attachments Cis isomers: Don’t pack together  Cis isomers have low viscosity - good  Trans isomers: Pack together tightly  Trans isomers are solids - bad  Aromatic: the stuff of dreams Benzene ring contains C atoms Bonding is resonant – more stable than expected All aromatic compounds contain at least one benzene ring Benzene, C6H6, is one of the most important industrial chemicals Toxicity of benzene Benzene is regarded as a highly carcinogenic substance Use and disposal of benzene are regulated Compounds containing benzene rings are not necessarily toxic Functional groups Chemistry of organic compounds is determined by functional groups Functional group is an atom or group of atoms that are different from C Heteroatoms confer very different properties on the substance Heteroatoms affect physical and chemical properties C2H6 (ethane) is a gas at RT C2H6 is insoluble in water C2H6O (ethanol) is a liquid at RT C2H6O is soluble in water  Differences in cohesive forces: O-H bonds are polar, C-H bonds are not Functionalized hydrocarbons Chlorocarbons and the environment Important uses – important problems  Solvents CH2Cl2  Insecticides DDT  Refrigerants CFCs Alcohols: hic Functional group –OH Polar molecules dissolve in H2O Ethanol: good for your health/bad for your health? Smoke gets in my eyes: olefactory pleasures of aldehydes C=O is carbonyl group Aldehyde contains RCHO Formaldehyde is a preservative and a product of burning wood Acrolein is a product of barbequing Common smells and flavours Ketones Ketone is R1R2CO Acetone is a common solvent Smell found in cinnamon Raspberries Carboxylic acids Commonly found in citrus fruits and any sour foods Formic acid present in ant and bee stings Esters: sweet aromas and flavours Ester group is R1COOR2 Sweet aroma in pineapples, jasmine Synthetic versions are very common Ethers Ethers contain R1-O-R2 No -OH bonds Not soluble in water Anesthetics Amines: the stench of death Amines contain NR1R2R3 Rotting fish Decaying flesh Illicit drugs [...]...Two reasons why carbon is unique Carbon can form four bonds – four valence electrons Carbon forms very strong bonds with itself – chains, rings etc Classifying organic compounds Hydrocarbons are the simplest organic compounds Contain only C and H Simplest is CH4 (natural gas) Intermediate C8H18 (petroleum) Synthetic polymers contain thousands of atoms Alkanes All bonds are single... Toxicity of benzene Benzene is regarded as a highly carcinogenic substance Use and disposal of benzene are regulated Compounds containing benzene rings are not necessarily toxic Functional groups Chemistry of organic compounds is determined by functional groups Functional group is an atom or group of atoms that are different from C Heteroatoms confer very different properties on the substance Heteroatoms... Representing molecules Molecular formula  Shows atoms in the molecule Structural formula  Shows how they are all connected Condensed structural formula  Simplified representation of connections Naming organic compounds Meth - ane Number of carbon atoms Type of compound Numbers game: count the carbon atoms in the chain Saturation bonding: Multiple bonds and unsaturation Saturated: no more bonds can
