Organic Chemistry III

Exercise I

Due Date: Oct. 4, 2008





  1. Calculate the difference in enthalpy between cis and trans decalins by counting the number of gauche-butane interactions. Use Ho = 0.8 kcal/mol for each gauche interaction.




  1. a. Write out all possible conformational forms of 1-methylquinolizidine. Ignore enantiomers.



b. Which forms interconvert with which (without bond breaking)? Note that both ring reversaland nitrogen inversion can take place (in contrast to 1-methyldecalin).

c. Count the number of gauche-butane interactions for each structure in (a). In each set of interconverting forms, which one(s) is(are) the major conformational isomer(s)?




  1. Characterize the indicated protons as being stereohomotopic, enantiotopic, or diastereotopic.





  1. Explain why cyclohexane derivative shown prefers the conformation with the methyl group axial (B) rather than equatorial (A).





  1. Predict which isomer is preferred, and briefly explain why.





  1. Series E and F can be viewed as two different ways to annulate an ethano bridge onto four-, five-, and six-membered rings. Using the Hfo values given (in kcal/mol), calculate the strain energy for each compound. Briefly discuss whether the trend seen in each series is consistent with expectations based on additivity of ring strain.





  1. What are the major contributions of the Nobel laureates listed in the handout?
