Stereochemistry of Bromine Addition to an Alkene Written by Aarti Prabhu Objective: To be able to conduct a reflux reaction, and practice improving recrystallization and mp determination, by the bromination of trans-cinnamic acid to form 2,3-dibromophenylpropanoic acid, and connect syn and anti addition concepts and stereochemical. These formulae are used if the molecule has a possible plane of symmetry. One such example would be: Here the carbons marked with an asterisk are stereogenic centres (the asterisk is not used to mark isotopes). We can clearly see that if carbon number 2 (in the entire longest chain) and the carbon number 4 have opposite stereogenic configuration, then the molecule will be . Geometric Isomers in Cyclic Systems Substituents attached to a ring system will either be on the same side of the ring or on the opposite side of the ring. Thus, cyclic alkanes show cis and trans geometrical isomers. The letters E and Z are not used in cyclic alkanes. The cis and trans isomers of 1,3-dimethylcyclobutane are shown Size: 67KB.   The bromine molecule adds across the olefin, and potentially generates 2 chiral centres, but there is a catch.. "1,2-addition" of bromine across the cyclohexene yields the given structure: This has 2 potential chiral centres, which are plain to see. Moreover, as written, the circumstances, the mechanism, of olefin bromination, dictate that the bromines add from .

Lester Johnson Organic Chemistry lab Lab Partner: Tanner Schmitz Stereochemistry of Bromine Addition to trans- Cinnamic Acid Introduction The purpose of this lab was to perform a Bromine addition to trans-Cinnnamic acid and decide whether the erythro or threo isomer was formed from the reaction. Erthryo and threo describe the configuration of the compounds . Stereochemistry of Bromine Addition to Trans-Cinnamic Acid Jeff Krstulich Introduction: The Lab Stereochemistry of Bromine Addition to Trans-Cinnamic Acid was completed on September 27 th, The purpose of this lab was to 2,3-dibromophenylpropanoic acid from trans-cinnamic acid and test whether it was erythro or threo by measuring the melting point. Addition of a halogen atom to an alkene proceeds via a trans addition. This occurs due to steric hindrance created by the formation of the halonium ion. Catalytic hydrogenation of alkenes and alkynes takes place via cis addition because absorption of the hydrogen on the surface of the rigid catalyst allows the hydrogen atoms to approach the double bond from only one side of the .

Title: Microsoft Word - Practice Problems on Stereochemistry with Addition Reactions to Alkenes - Author: Jose Laboy Created Date.

Syn addition occurs when H 2 reacts with a double bond. In this type of a reaction, both hydrogen atoms are added to the same side. The product that puts the hydrogen atoms on . The following alkene will react with bromine and water to give the mixture of isomers shown below. Use this to solve the three questions below. Draw the key intermediate of the reaction. Be sure to show stereochemistry. Why is this intermediate responsible for the regiochemistry observed above? Question: In STEREOCHEMISTRY OF BROMINE ADDITION Experiment, We Got The Product 1) Only The Syn Enantiomers, 2) Only The Anti Enantiomers, Or 3) A Mixture Of Diastereomers By And Then We Do NMR We Don’t Crystallize The Final Product. This Means That Your Final Product Might Be Slightly Impure.   Stereochemistry of addition of halogen to alkenes (syn & anti-addition): Addition of bromine to 2-butene gives 2,3-dibromobutane. 2-butene exists as cis- and trans-geometrical isomers while 2,3-dibromobutane exists in three stereoisomeric forms. Cisbutene selectively forms recemic 2,3-dibromobutane (I) & (II).
