3 Introduction to Redox Chemistry Redox chemistry is concerned with net electron flow to and from a defined centre during a chemical reaction. A defined centre can be: 3

4 Introduction Cont d A defined centre is said to be oxidized if the electron density decreases, and reduced if electron density increases, during a reaction. The rule is: Loss of electrons equates with xidation Gain of electrons equates with Reduction 4

5 Introduction Cont d The oxidation of a defined centre can be changed in two ways. Firstly by Single Electron Transfer (SET) to the defined centre (reduction) or from the defined centre (oxidation). For example, the iron(iii) ion, Fe 3+, can be reduced to iron(ii), Fe 2+. The reaction can also occur in the oxidation direction. 5

6 Introduction Cont d 6

7 Introduction Cont d The reduction electron can either be provided by a chemical reducing agent (often a metal) or electrochemically. Electron flow by way of single electron transfer oxidation and reduction can be predicted using standard reduction potential data 7

8 Introduction Cont d The second method of changing the oxidation number is by reversal of bond polarization at the defined centre. ydrogen is electropositive and it renders the carbon of methane, C 4, electron rich and it is defined as having an oxidation number of -4. owever, the carbon of carbon dioxide has an oxidation number of +4 because oxygen is more electronegative than carbon. (Each bond contributes once.) 8

9 9

10 Introduction Cont d The combustion of methane to carbon dioxide is an oxidation of carbon because the oxidation number of carbon increases from -4 to +4 10

11 Introduction Cont d It follows that Redox Chemistry can proceed by three types of redox reaction: 11

12 Introduction Cont d 12

13 In general, an organic compound will be reduced if the no. of C- bonds increases. A compound will be oxidised if the no. of C- bonds decreases or if the no. of C- bonds increases. RC CR 2 Pt RC 2 C 2 R reduction RC 2 Cr 4 RC oxidation 13

15 nly the alkene is reduced in this reaction. The very stable benzene ring can be reduced only under special conditions. C C 2 2, Pd/C C 2 C 3 Catalytic hydrogenations can also be used to reduce C=N bonds and carbon nitrogen triple bonds. These reactions produce amines. C 3 C 2 C NC Pd/C C 3 C 2 C 2 C N + 2 Pd/C C 3 C 2 C 2 NC 3 methylpropylamine C 3 C 2 C 2 C 2 N 2 butylamine 15

17 An acyl chloride is reduced by catalytic hydrogenation to an aldehyde which is further reduced to a primary alcohol. C 3 C 2 CCl an acyl chloride 2 Pd/C C 3 C 2 C an aldehyde C 3 C 2 C 2 a primary alcohol The reaction can be stopped at the aldehyde using a partially deactivated palladium catalyst. C 3 C 2 CCl an acyl chloride 2 partially deactivated Pd C 3 C 2 C an aldehyde 17

18 The carbon-oxygen double bonds of carboxylic acids, esters, and amides are less reactive, so they are harder to reduce than the carbon-oxygen double bonds of aldehydes and ketones. They cannot be reduced by catalytic hydrogenation (except under extreme conditions). C 3 C 2 C 2 Raney Ni N REACTIN C 3 C 2 CC 3 C 3 C 2 CNC 3 2 Raney Ni 2 Raney Ni N REACTIN N REACTIN 18

19 Dissolving metal reduction C 3 C CC 3 2-butyne Na or Li N 3 (liq) 3 C C C C 3 trans-2-butene Na or Li donates an electron and N 3 donates a proton. Na/Li and N 3 cannot reduce a C=C, which makes it a useful reagent for reducing a triple bond in a compound that also has a double bond. C 3 C 3 C CC 2 C CC 3 Na or Li N 3 (liq) C 3 C 3 C C C 3 C CC 2 19

20 Reduction by addition of - and + The reducing agents are NaB 4 or LiAl 4. ydride ion adds to the carbonyl carbon and the alkoxide ion that is formed is protonated by water. - C - C 2 C + - Aldehydes and ketones are reduced by NaB 4 C 3 C 2 C 2 C an aldehyde C 3 C 2 C 2 CC 3 a ketone 1.

21 The metal-hydrogen bonds in LiAl 4 are more polar than those in NaB 4 and as a result, LiAl 4 is a stronger reducing agent. Both will reduce aldehydes and ketones, but only LiAl 4 will reduce carboxylic acids, esters and amides. C 3 C 2 C 2 C C 3 C 2 CC 3 1. LiAl , 2 1.

LiAl 4 C 3 C 2 C 2 C NC 3 C 3 C 2 C 2 C 2 NC a tertiary amine In order to obtain a neutral (non-protonated) amine, acid is not used in the second step of the reaction. 22

23 Because NaB 4 cannot reduce an ester, an amide, or a carboxylic acid, it can be used to selectively reduce an aldehyde or a ketone group. C 3 CC 2 C 2 CC 3 1. NaB C 3 CC 2 C 2 CC 3 Sterically bulky donors can be used to deliver only one equivalent of hydride ion. E.g esters and and acyl chlorides are reduced to aldehydes.

24 Multiply bonded carbon atoms of alkenes and alkynes do not react with NaB 4 and LiAl 4. It can therefore be used to selectively reduce a carbonyl group in a compound that has multiply bonded carbon atoms. C 3 C 2 C C 2 NaB 4 No reaction C 3 C 2 C 3 2 C C 3 C CC 2 CC 3 NaB 4 1.

33 Alkyl substituents increase the electron density of the double bond and therefore it will react in preference to another double bond with fewer alkyl substituents RC + + RC The addition of oxygen to an alkene is a stereospecific reaction RC C C 3 C C 3 C C 3 C C 3 cis-2-butene cis-2,3-dimethyloxime 3 C C C C 3 RC 3 C C C C 3 trans-2-butene trans-2,3-dimethyloxime 33
