Chapter 16 Aromatic Compounds Organic Chemistry, 7th Edition L. G. Wade, Jr. Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Chapter 16 2 Discovery of Benzene ? Isolated in 1825 by Michael Faraday who determined C:H ratio to be 1:1. ? Synthesized in 1834 by Eilhard Mitscherlich who determined molecular formula to be C6H6. He named it benzin. ? Other related compounds with low C:H ratios had a pleasant smell, so they were classified as aromatic. Chapter 16 3 Kekulé Structure ? Proposed in 1866 by Friedrich Kekulé, shortly after multiple bonds were suggested. ? Failed to explain existence of only one isomer of 1,2-dichlorobenzene. C C C C C C H H H H H H Chapter 16 4 Resonance Structures of Benzene ? Benzene is actually a resonance hybrid between the two Kekulé structures. ? The C?C bond lengths in benzene are shorter than typical single-bond lengths, yet longer than typical double-bond lengths (bond order 1.5). ? Benzene's resonance can be represented by drawing a circle inside the six-membered ring as a combined representation. Chapter 16 5 Structure of Benzene ? Each sp2 hybridized C in the ring has an unhybridized p orbital perpendicular to the ring which overlaps around the ring. ? The six pi electrons are delocalized over the six carbons. Chapter 16 6 Unusual Addition of Bromine to Benzene ? When bromine adds to benzene, a catalyst such as FeBr3 is needed. ? The reaction that occurs is the substitution of a hydrogen by bromine. ? Addition of Br2 to the double bond is not observed. Chapter 16 7 Resonance Energy ? Benzene does not have the predicted heat of hydrogenation of -359 kJ/mol. ? The observed heat of hydrogenation is -208 kJ/mol, a difference of 151 kJ. ? This difference between the predicted and the observed value is called the resonance energy. Chapter 16 8 Molar Heats of Hydrogenation Chapter 16 9 Annulenes ? Annulenes are hydrocarbons with alternating single and double bonds. ? Benzene is a six-membered annulene, so it can be named -annulene. Cylobutadiene is -annulene, cyclooctatetraene is -annulene. Chapter 16 10 Annulenes ? All cyclic conjugated hydrocarbons were proposed to be aromatic. ? However, cyclobutadiene is so reactive that it dimerizes before it can be isolated. ? Cyclooctatetraene adds Br2 readily to the double bonds. ? Molecular orbitals can explain aromaticity. Chapter 16 11 MO Rules for Benzene ? Six overlapping p orbitals must form six molecular orbitals. ? Three will be bonding, three antibonding. ? Lowest energy MO will have all bonding interactions, no nodes. ? As energy of MO increases, the number of nodes increases. Chapter 16 12 MO?s for Benzene Lowest molecular orbital Highest molecular orbital Chapter 16 13 First MO of Benzene ? The first MO of benzene is entirely bonding with no nodes. ? It has very low energy because it has six bonding interactions and the electrons are delocalized over all six carbon atoms. Chapter 16 14 Intermediate MO of Benzene ? The intermediate levels are degenerate (equal in energy) with two orbitals at each energy level. ? Both ?2 and ?3 have one nodal plane. Chapter 16 15 All Antibonding MO of Benzene ? The all-antibonding ?6* has three nodal planes. ? Each pair of adjacent p orbitals is out of phase and interacts destructively. Chapter 16 16 Energy Diagram for Benzene ? The six electrons fill three bonding pi orbitals. ? All bonding orbitals are filled (?closed shell?), an extremely stable arrangement. Chapter 16 17 MO?s for Cyclobutadiene Chapter 16 18 Electronic Energy Diagram for Cyclobutadiene ? Following Hund?s rule, two electrons are in separate nonbonding molecular orbitals. ? This diradical would be very reactive. Chapter 16 19 Polygon Rule ? The energy diagram for an annulene has the same shape as the cyclic compound with one vertex at the bottom. Chapter 16 20 Aromatic Requirements ? Structure must be cyclic with conjugated pi bonds. ? Each atom in the ring must have an unhybridized p orbital (sp2 or sp). ? The p orbitals must overlap continuously around the ring. Structure must be planar (or close to planar for effective overlap to occur) ? Delocalization of the pi electrons over the ring must lower the electronic energy. Chapter 16 21 Anti- and Nonaromatic ? Antiaromatic compounds are cyclic, conjugated, with overlapping p orbitals around the ring, but electron delocalization increases its electronic energy. ? Nonaromatic compounds do not have a continuous ring of overlapping p orbitals and may be nonplanar. Chapter 16 22 Hückel?s Rule ? Once the aromatic criteria is met, Huckel?s rule applies. ? If the number of pi electrons is (4N + 2) the compound is aromatic (where N is an integer) ? If the number of pi electrons is (4N) the compound is antiaromatic. Chapter 16 23 Orbital Overlap of Cyclooctatetraene ? Cyclooctatetraene assumes a nonplanar tub conformation that avoids most of the overlap between the adjacent pi bonds. Huckel's rule simply does not apply. Chapter 16 24 Annulenes ? Annulene is antiaromatic. ? Annulene would be antiaromatic, but it?s not planar, so it?s nonaromatic. ? Annulene is aromatic except for the isomers that are nonplanar. ? Larger 4N annulenes are not antiaromatic because they are flexible enough to become nonplanar. Chapter 16 25 MO Derivation of Hückel?s Rule ? Aromatic compounds have (4N + 2) electrons and the orbitals are filled. ? Antiaromatic compounds have only 4N electrons and has unpaired electrons in two degenerate orbitals. Chapter 16 26 Cyclopentadienyl Ions ? The cation has an empty p orbital, 4 electrons, so it is antiaromatic. ? The anion has a nonbonding pair of electrons in a p orbital, 6 electrons, it is aromatic. Chapter 16 27 Deprotonation of Cyclopentadiene ? By deprotonating the sp3 carbon of cyclopentadiene, the electrons in the p orbitals can be delocalized over all five carbon atoms and the compound would be aromatic. ? Cyclopentadiene is acidic because deprotonation will convert it to an aromatic ion. Chapter 16 28 Orbital View of the Deprotonation of Cyclopentadiene ? Deprotonation will allow the overlap of all the p orbitals in the molecule. ? Cyclopentadiene is not necessarily as stable as benzene and it reacts readily with electrophiles. Chapter 16 29 Cyclopentadienyl Cation ? Huckel?s rule predicts that the cyclopentadienyl cation, with four pi electrons, is antiaromatic. ? In agreement with this prediction, the cyclopentadienyl cation is not easily formed. Chapter 16 30 Resonance Forms of Cyclopentadienyl Ions Chapter 16 31 Tropylium Ion ? The cycloheptatrienyl cation has 6 pi electrons and an empty p orbital. ? The cycloheptatrienyl cation is easily formed by treating the corresponding alcohol with dilute (0.01N) aqueous sulfuric acid. ? The cycloheptatrienyl cation is commonly known as the tropylium ion. aromatic Chapter 16 32 Cyclooctatetraene Dianion ? Cyclooctatetraene reacts with potassium metal to form an aromatic dianion. ? The dianion has 10 pi electrons and is aromatic. Chapter 16 33 Which of the following is an aromatic compound? Non-aromatic Aromatic There is an sp3 carbon in the ring, delocalization will not be complete. All carbons are sp3 hybridized and it obeys Huckel?s rule. Chapter 16 34 Pyridine Pi System ? Pyridine has six delocalized electrons in its pi system. ? The two non-bonding electrons on nitrogen are in an sp2 orbital, and they do not interact with the pi electrons of the ring. Chapter 16 35 Pyridine ? Pyridine is basic, with a pair non-bonding electrons available to abstract a proton. ? The protonated pyridine (the pyridinium ion) is still aromatic. Chapter 16 36 Pyrrole Pi System ? The pyrrole nitrogen atom is sp2 hybridized with a lone pair of electrons in the p orbital. This p orbital overlaps with the p orbitals of the carbon atoms to form a continuous ring. ? Pyrrole is aromatic because it has 6 pi electrons (N = 1). Chapter 16 37 Pyrrole ? Also aromatic, but lone pair of electrons is delocalized, so much weaker base. Chapter 16 38 Basic or Nonbasic? Pyrimidine has two basic nitrogens. Imidazole has one basic nitrogen and one nonbasic. Only one of purine?s nitrogens is not basic.N N N N H N N H NN Not basic Not basic Chapter 16 39 Other Heterocyclics Chapter 16 40 Is the molecule below aromatic, anti-aromatic or non-aromatic? N N N H Aromatic Chapter 16 41 Naphthalene ? Fused rings share 2 atoms and the bond between them. ? Naphthalene is the simplest fused aromatic hydrocarbon. Chapter 16 42 Fused Ring Hydrocarbons Chapter 16 43 Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons ? As the number of aromatic rings increases, the resonance energy per ring decreases, so larger polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons will add Br2. H Br Br H H Br H Br Chapter 16 44 Larger Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons ? Formed in combustion (tobacco smoke). ? Many are carcinogenic. ? Epoxides form, combine with DNA base. pyrene Chapter 16 45 Allotropes of Carbon ? Amorphous: small particles of graphite; charcoal, soot, coal, carbon black. ?

Chapter 16 49 Fused Heterocyclic Compounds Common in nature, synthesized for drugs. Chapter 16 50 Common Names of Benzene Derivatives Chapter 16 51 Disubstituted Benzenes ? Numbers can also be used to identify the relationship between the groups; ortho- is 1,2-disubstituted, meta- is 1,3, and para- is 1,4. Chapter 16 52 Three or More Substituents Use the smallest possible numbers, but the carbon with a functional group is #1. Chapter 16 53 Common Names for Disubstituted Benzenes CH3 CH3 CH3 CH3H3C CH3 C O OH OH H3Cm-xylene mesitylene o-toluic acid p-cresol Chapter 16 54 Phenyl and Benzyl Phenyl indicates the benzene ring attachment. The benzyl group has an additional carbon. CH2Br benzyl bromide Br phenyl bromide Chapter 16 55 Physical Properties of Aromatic Compounds ? Melting points: More symmetrical than corresponding alkane, pack better into crystals, so higher melting points. ? Boiling points: Dependent on dipole moment, so ortho > meta > para, for disubstituted benzenes. ? Density: More dense than nonaromatics, less dense than water. ? Solubility: Generally insoluble in water. Chapter 16 56 IR and NMR Spectroscopy ?
