For example, the following substitution reaction has a major problem as drawn. AND Hide the incompatible group 2. Protecting group (PG) is a small molecule, to mask temporarily the a specific functional group of a molecule from undergoing reaction, allowing the rest of the functional groups present in the molecule to react without affecting the original reactivity and leave from the host molecule without affecting the rest of the functional groups. Unless otherwise noted, LibreTexts content is licensed by CC BY-NC-SA 3.0. Is there anything – oh, that's supposed to be erasing. If you only have one functional group, we don't care, you don't need to protect anything. See our Privacy Policy and User Agreement for details.

You're only going to use a protecting group if you have more than one functional group on a molecule. Can alcohols react with alkynides? Remove the protecting group and return to the original group.

Removing the protecting group and reforming the original functional group. Protecting Groups for Alcohols- Ether protection (Alcohol to ether) • 2-Methoxyethoxymethyl ether (MEM) • Selective protection is possible • Can be incorporated at relatively weak basic conditions (3° amine) but needs • relatively strong acid (TFA) to remove • Stable in basic conditions • The reagent, MEMCl, is considered carcinogenic Well, scientists determined, you know what, alcohols are messing up a lot of different reactions, so if we can figure out a way to get rid of the alcohol for a few minutes, then run the rest of the reaction and then regenerate the alcohol, that would be really helpful. 15 - Analytical Techniques: IR, NMR, Mass Spect, Ch. Previous Section Ether Cleavage. Legal. 20 - Carboxylic Acid Derivatives: NAS, Ch.

How can we guarantee that a reaction won’t take place at the alcohol? All of these reactions, except one, will require some sort of protecting group. Silyl ethers are a group of chemical compounds which contain a silicon atom covalently bonded to an alkoxy group.

In this case, this would be an SN2 reaction. Hey guys, so now let's talk about protecting groups. Clutch Prep is not sponsored or endorsed by any college or university. We've got an alcohol and an alkyl halide on the same molecule. Ch. So if you're not able to regenerate that vulnerable functional group at the end, that's not really a great protecting group. 21 - Enolate Chemistry: Reactions at the Alpha-Carbon, Ch. 1) Protect the Alcohol. Chlorotrimethylsilane is often used in conjuction with a base, such as triethylamine, The base helps to form the alkoxide anion and remove the HCl produced by the reaction. As you guys might remember, alkynides are good nucleophiles, but they're also strong bases. Submitted by Assume and acid quench if needed. : 1. By definition, this has to be a completely reversible, easily reversible reaction. Slideshare uses cookies to improve functionality and performance, and to provide you with relevant advertising. But notice that there's that other functional group of the molecule, the alcohol. 19 - Aldehydes and Ketones: Nucleophilic Addition, Ch. But if you have more than one, then there may be some instances where you want to react with one and not the other and that's when you use a protecting group. Have questions or comments?

The reason for that is that you're supposed to be able to take the molecule off after the reaction is complete. 1.

A Quick Recap on Protecting Groups. An excellent example is the fact that a Grignard reagent can't be prepared from halo alcohol because the C-Mg bond is not compatible with the acidic -OH group. Protecting groups are reactions that are used to shield certain types of functional groups. That's exactly what we're going to do with our protecting group. If you continue browsing the site, you agree to the use of cookies on this website. Roshen Reji Idiculla The addition of protecting groups to functional groups is termed ‘protection’ and removal of protecting group is ‘deprotection’. They react through an acid-base mechanism because we know that alcohols have an acidic proton and alkynides are very strong bases. PROTECTING GROUPS Actually, yes and they react through a different mechanism. Blocking the interfering functionality by introducing a protecting group. ID MS14/11 Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later. Functional group protection involves three steps: There are several methods for protecting an alcohol, however, the most common is the reaction with a chlorotrialkylsilane, Cl-SiR3 This reactions forms a trialkylsilyl ether, R'-O-SiR3. GROUP Enter your friends' email addresses to invite them: If you forgot your password, you can reset it. After completing this section, you should be able to. You can change your ad preferences anytime. Next Section t-Butyl Ether Protecting Groups. describe one common method for protecting the hydroxy group of an alcohol, and give an example of its use (e.g., in the preparation of a Grignard reagent). 26 - Amino Acids, Peptides, and Proteins, Leaving Group Conversions - SOCl2 and PBr3, Leaving Group Conversions - Sulfonyl Chlorides, Making Ethers - Acid-Catalyzed Alkoxylation.

So if I do want this reaction to happen, is there any way to make it only react with the alkyl halide and not the alcohol? Let's look at this reagent. Well, in this case, what I'm trying to do is as you can see, my end product, I'm trying to make this alkynide perform a substitution reaction on the alkyl halide. When situations like this occurs chemists circumvent the problem by protecting the interfering functional group. Let's go ahead and look at this reaction. Protecting Groups in Organic Synthesis-1 Ready Protecting groups are a sad fact of synthetic chemistry They are usually needed, but rarely desired Many syntheses have stalled because of trouble putting on or removing protecting groups 4 basic questions to address when choosing a P.G. (Note that you may not actually know a good protecting group for each reaction.) Looks like you’ve clipped this slide to already. Additional Problems. THEIR DEPROTECTION I know that sounds complicated, but basically what we're going to try to do is we're going to try to shield vulnerable functional groups from certain types of strong reagents.

Protecting groups are reversible reactions that temporarily block groups from reacting, so that we can transform other parts of the molecule. Do what needs to be done elsewhere in the molecule 3. Despite an intervening century of fabulous progress in the synthetic methodology 3,4, the proliferation of protecting groups is a tacit acknowledgement that selectivity in functional group transformations remain a central and unsolved problem in organic synthesis 5. SHIELDED BY The general structure is R 1 R 2 R 3 Si−O−R 4 where R 4 is an alkyl group or an aryl group. 2) Form the Grignard Reagent. PROTECTING If you continue browsing the site, you agree to the use of cookies on this website.

It turns out that this reaction will not proceed to completion. Learn more. Let me give you an example of why I might need something like this. Watch the recordings here on Youtube! REAGENTS. REACTIVE This can be a problem if we want to react on some other part of the molecule. The LibreTexts libraries are Powered by MindTouch® and are supported by the Department of Education Open Textbook Pilot Project, the UC Davis Office of the Provost, the UC Davis Library, the California State University Affordable Learning Solutions Program, and Merlot. Alcohols are highly reactive. explain what is meant by “protecting” a functional group during an organic synthesis. By utilizing a protecting group a Grignad reagent can be formed and reacted on a halo alcohol. Dr. Dietmar Kennepohl FCIC (Professor of Chemistry, Athabasca University), Prof. Steven Farmer (Sonoma State University). Slideshare uses cookies to improve functionality and performance, and to provide you with relevant advertising. FUNCTIONAL First of all, that brings up our first point. Which reaction  does not require a protecting group to work (which would work exactly as shown)? Three Steps Required: 1.
