Organic redox reactions: the Birch reduction

Organic reductions or organic oxidations or organic redox reactions are redox reactions that take place with organic compounds. In organic chemistry oxidations and reductions are different from ordinary redox reactions, because many reactions carry the name but tự not actually involve electron transfer.[1] Instead the relevant criterion for organic oxidation is gain of oxygen and/or loss of hydrogen.[2]

Simple functional groups can be arranged in order of increasing oxidation state. The oxidation numbers are only an approximation:[1]

oxidation number compounds
−4 methane
−3 alkanes
−2, −1 alkanes, alkenes, alcohols, alkyl halides, amines
0 alkynes, geminal diols
+1 aldehydes
+2 chloroform, hydrogen cyanide, ketones
+3 carboxylic acids, amides, nitriles (alkyl cyanides)
+4 carbon dioxide, tetrachloromethane

When methane is oxidized to tướng carbon dioxide its oxidation number changes from −4 to tướng +4. Classical reductions include alkene reduction to tướng alkanes and classical oxidations include oxidation of alcohols to tướng aldehydes. In oxidations electrons are removed and the electron mật độ trùng lặp từ khóa of a molecule is reduced. In reductions electron mật độ trùng lặp từ khóa increases when electrons are added to tướng the molecule. This terminology is always centered on the organic compound. For example, it is usual to tướng refer to tướng the reduction of a ketone by lithium aluminium hydride, but not to tướng the oxidation of lithium aluminium hydride by a ketone. Many oxidations involve removal of hydrogen atoms from the organic molecule, and reduction adds hydrogens to tướng an organic molecule.

Many reactions classified as reductions also appear in other classes. For instance, conversion of the ketone to tướng an alcohol by lithium aluminium hydride can be considered a reduction but the hydride is also a good nucleophile in nucleophilic substitution. Many redox reactions in organic chemistry have coupling reaction reaction mechanism involving không tính tiền radical intermediates. True organic redox chemistry can be found in electrochemical organic synthesis or electrosynthesis. Examples of organic reactions that can take place in an electrochemical cell are the Kolbe electrolysis.[3]

In disproportionation reactions the reactant is both oxidised and reduced in the same chemical reaction forming two separate compounds.

Asymmetric catalytic reductions and asymmetric catalytic oxidations are important in asymmetric synthesis.

Organic oxidations[edit]

Most oxidations are conducted with air or oxygen, especially in industry. These oxidation include routes to tướng chemical compounds, remediation of pollutants, and combustion.

Myriad reagents have been invented for organic oxidations. Organic oxidations reagents are usually classified according to tướng the functional group attacked by the oxidant:

  • Oxidation of C-H bonds:
R3CH + O → R3COH
R2CH2 + O → R2CH(OH)
R2CH(OH) + O → R2CO + H2O
RCH3 + O → RCH2(OH)
RCH2(OH) + O → RCHO + H2O
  • Oxidation of C-C, C=C, and C≡C bonds
  • Oxidation of alcohols and various carbonyls

Often the substrate to tướng be oxidized features more kêu ca one functional group. In such cases, selective oxidations become important.

Organic reductions[edit]

In organic chemistry, reduction is equivalent to tướng the addition of hydrogen atoms, usually in pairs. The reaction of unsaturated organic compounds with hydrogen gas is called hydrogenation. The reaction of saturated organic compounds with hydrogen gas is called hydrogenolysis. Hydrogenolyses necessarily cleaves C-X bonds (X = C, O, N, etc.). Reductions can also be effected by adding hydride and proton sources, the so-called heterolytic pathway. Such reactions are often effected using stoichiometric hydride reagents such as sodium borohydride or lithium aluminium hydride.
