Rings, acids and amines

HideShow resource information
Define arene
aromatic hydrocarbons containing one or more benzene rings
1 of 33
Define aromatic
the cyclic structure of a hydrocarbon, the presence of a benze ring
2 of 33
Define electrophile
an atom or group of atoms that is attracted to an electron-rich centre where it accepts a pair of electrons to form a new covalent bond (electron grabbers)
3 of 33
Define redox reaction
one in which both reduction and oxidation take place
4 of 33
Define reflux
the continual boiling and condensing of a reaction mixture to ensure the reaction takes place without the contents of the flask boiling dry
5 of 33
Define esterification
the reaction of an alcohol with a carboxylic acid to produce an ester and water
6 of 33
What is an amine?
derivatives of ammonia- a primary amine is one in which the nitrogen atom is attached to one carbon chain
7 of 33
What are the conditions and reagents required for nitraton of benzene
conc nitiric acid and conc sulfuric acid at a temperature of 50C - conc sulfuric acid acts as a catalyst
8 of 33
What is required for the halogenation of benzene?
a halogen carrier - FeCl3, AlCl3, Fe, FeBr3, AlBr3
9 of 33
What is the result of phenol + bromine
undergoes electrophilic substitution taking place at room temp, without a halogen carrier catalyst -organe bromine colour disappears and a white precipitate of 2,4,6-tribromophenol is formed
10 of 33
What is a suitable oxidising agent for alcohols and aldehydes and would would we observe?
acidified potassium dichromate- would change from orange to green
11 of 33
What is a suitabe reducing agent for aldehydes and ketones?
aldehydes and ketones react with NaBH4 in a nuclophilic addition reaction
12 of 33
What test could be used to detect a carbonyl group?
add brady's reagent to an aldehye or ketone and a yellow/orange precipitate forms (no precipitation with an ester or carboxylic acid)
13 of 33
How can we test whether or not a mixture is a ketone or aldehyde?
add tollen's reagent (a weak oxidising agent)- a silver/grey solid is formed if it is an aldehyde but not if its a ketone
14 of 33
How can Tollen's reagent be made in the lab?
aq sodium hydroxide is added to aq silver nitrate until a brown precipitate of silver oxide is formed, dilute aq ammonia is then added til precipitate dissolves, colourless solution is Tollen's reagent
15 of 33
What is the reaction between carboxylic acids and metals?
a salt is formed and hydrogen gas- there will be effervescence
16 of 33
What is the reaction between carboxylic acids and bases?
a salt is formed and water
17 of 33
What is the reaction between carboxylic acids and carbonates?
a salt is formed, carbon dioxide and water
18 of 33
How can esters be made from carboxylic acids?
Reacting a carboxylic acid with an alcohol in the presence of an acid catalyst (usually H2SO4) - this is esterification
19 of 33
How can esters be made from acid anhydrides?
gently heating acid ahydrides with an alcohol - produces a much better yield than carboxylic acids
20 of 33
Describe acid hydrolysis of esters
the ester is heated under reflux with dilute H2SO4 or dilute HCl acting as a catalyst. Ester is broken down by water. This reaction is reversible
21 of 33
Describe alkaline hydrolysis of esters
Aq NaOH or KOH is refluxed with ester and forms a sodium or potassium salt of the carboxylic acid. This reaction is non-reversible
22 of 33
What is formed when amines react with acids?
a salt
23 of 33
How can aliphatic amines be prepared?
warming halogenoalkanes gently with an excess of ammonia, using ethanol as the solvent
24 of 33
How can aromatic amines be prepared?
nitroarenes such as nitrobenzene can be reduced using a mixture of tin and conc HCl, heated under reflux, followed by neutralisation of the excess HCl
25 of 33
What is diazotisation?
First step in making azo dyes. When a mixture of phenylamine and nitrous acid is kept below 10C, a diazonium salt is formed.
26 of 33
What is coupling?
Second step in making azo dyes. Diazonium salt is reacted with a phenol or other aromatic compound under alkaline conditions. Two benzene rings are linked through an azo functional group.
27 of 33
What is formed when a primary alcohol is oxidised?
An aldehyde then a carboxylic acid under reflux
28 of 33
What is formed when a secondary alcohol is oxidised?
A ketone
29 of 33
What is formed when an aldehyde is oxidised?
Carboxylic acids (carried out under reflux)
30 of 33
Name some uses of phenols
Theyre found in: Surfactants, detergents, antiseptics, disinfectants. Used in the preparation of: apirin and they produce epoxy resins for paints
31 of 33
What is the reaction between phenol and NaOH?
When dissolved in H2O phenol forms a weak acidic solution by losing the H+ from the -OH group. Phenol is neutralised by aq NaOH to form a salt, sodium phenoxide and water (H+ lost from phenol bonds to -OH in NaOH to give H2O)
32 of 33
What is the reaction between phenol and sodium?
the metal effervesces producing hydrogen gas. The organic product is sodium phenoxide, a salt.
