CH3CH2CH2C 5 4 3 2 CH2 1 CH3 Next, identify the C atom within the double bond that has more H atoms attached. Since carbon 1 has two H atoms attached, and carbon 2 has no H atoms attached, the H atom in the HOH adds to carbon 1, and the OH group adds to carbon 2. We can now predict the product of the reaction. OH CH3CH2CH2C 5 4 3 2 CH3 CH2 + HOH 1 CH3CH2CH2C 5 4 3 2 H CH2 1 CH3 The compound produced is 2-hydroxy-2-methylpentane. 3 Example Draw structural diagrams to represent an addition reaction of an alkene to produce 2-chlorobutane.

A molecule of water is eliminated and the remaining portions of the two alcohol molecules combine to form an ether. This type of reaction, in which two molecules interact to form a larger molecule with a loss of a small molecule such as water, is called a condensation reaction. As illustrated in the equation below, two molecules of methanol interact to produce methoxymethane and water; as with many dehydration reactions, concentrated sulfuric acid is needed as a catalyst. condensation reaction a reaction in which two molecules combine to form a larger product, with the elimination of a small molecule such as water or an alcohol H2SO4 CH3OH(l) ϩ CH3OH(l) → CH3OCH3(l) ϩ HOH(l) methanol (condensation reaction) methanol methoxymethane water SUMMARY Condensation Reactions of Alcohols to Ethers alcohol alcohol R–O–H H – O – R′ dehydration (H2SO4) ether R – O – R′ + H2O Reactions Involving Ethers SAMPLE problem Write a balanced equation to show the formation of an ether from 1-propanol.

NEL Figure 1 Figure 2 Many ketones are volatile compounds that can travel long distances, making them good carriers of chemical signals for insects. Ants, bees, and moths like the gypsy moths shown here, produce and detect minute quantities of ketones to communicate the presence of food or water or the availability of a mate. carbonyl group a functional group containing a carbon atom joined with a double covalent bond to an oxygen atom; C෇O Organic Compounds 49 This difference in the position of the carbonyl group affects the chemical reactivity of the molecule, and is used in a test to distinguish aldehydes from ketones (Figure 3).
