ProcessReagentExtra Info
Radical Halogenation
Attaching an R group to a Ketone/Aldehyde
Alkene Halohydrin Formationanti-addition
Elimination into AlkyneExample: X-C-C-X
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeReduces carboxylic acid and esters. Does not leave other pi bonds alone.
Alkene Ozonolysis
Converts OH into a Good Leaving Group
Name of a protected Alcohol
Primary Alcohol into Carboxylic Acid
EliminationZaitsev
EliminationHofmann
Alkyne Ozonolysis
Alkene addition of OH groupMarkovnikov, allows carbocation rearrangement
Alkene Dihydroxylationanti-addition
AlkylationAttachment of an R group to a terminal alkyne
Protected Alcohol back to Alcohol
Halogenationanti-addition, use one equivalent per pi bond that you want broken
Secondary Alcohol into a Ketone
Hydrohalogenationanti-Markovnikov
ProcessReagentExtra Info
Alkyne into Ketone
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeReduces carboxylic acid and esters. Multiple Oxygen atoms involved. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
Alkyne into Aldehyde
Replace a OH with a BrPrimary and Secondary
Alkyne into trans-Alkene
Alkene Dihydroxylationsyn addition
Primary Alcohol into a Aldehyde
Attaching an R group to an Ester
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeReduces carboxylic acid and esters. Only one Oxygen atom involved. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
Hydrogenation
Alkyne into cis-Alkene
Alkene addition of OH groupMarkovnikov, no carbocation rearrangement
HydrohalogenationMarkovnikov, use one equivalent per pi bond that you want broken
Replace a OH with a ClPrimary and Secondary
Alcohol into Grignard
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeDoes not reduce carboxylic acid or esters. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
Replace a OH with a ClPrimary Only
Alkene addition of OH groupanti-Markovnikov, syn-addition
