Secretary of Commerce on behalf of the United States of America. However, some alkyl halides are also a danger to the community. The decanted 2-chloro-2-methylbutane weighed 22. Secretary of Commerce on behalf of the U. Swirl the flask, intermittently for 15 minutes.

Equation 1: Side Products of 1-bromobutane Alkyl hydrogen sulfate production: Alkene production: Ether production: With these side products consuming alcohol, it will then give a low yield of the bromoalkane, 1-bromobutane. With that the percent yield was calculated and was 83%. Cookies disclaimer Our site saves small pieces of text information cookies on your device in order to deliver better content and for statistical purposes. Because this boiling point reached a temperature that is a couple of degrees lower than its actual boiling point, we can assume that the synthesized substance contained impurities. The obtained percent yield of the product 1-bromobutane was 61% with a measured boiling point of 96°C; a boiling point lower than the its actual one of 99°C indicating that the 1-bromobutane obtained might not be completely pure.
Swirl the contents of the separatory funnel gently, without the stopper in the funnel. Haloalkanes can be found in households in cleaning solutions and spot removers. In 2-chloro-2-methylbutane the total product acquired was 19. Some alkyl halides such as chloroform and halothane are types of anesthetics that are used for minor procedures in surgeries. The S N1 mechanism will allow for the synthesis of 2-chloro-2-methylbutane from 2-methyl-2-propanol. When an E1 reaction occurs the carbocation intermediate will react in different ways, which will give a mixture of products.
Distillation collected was in a beaker that was immersed into an ice bath.

Separate the layers and pour the aqueous layer into a 500-mL Erlenmeyer flask. . © 2018 by the U. With the interaction between aluminum and 2-chloro-2-methylbutane it will lead to the formation of different ions such as AlCl 4. Once solutions have been mixed, add stopper and shake, invert and release any excess pressure by opening the stopcock.
Shake, and vent the funnel intermittently for about 5 minutes. Preparation of 2-chloro-2-methylbutane The reaction is S N1. With the product recovered, a boiling point of 96°C was observed. Some common uses of haloalkanes are found in solvents, reagents, anesthetics, freons and pesticides. These haloalkanes can be produced through nucleophilic substitution reactions also known as S N2 and S N1 reactions and it was through this that the haloalkanes 1-bromobutane and 2-chloro-2methylbutane were produced. The S N2 reaction allowed 1-butanol to be synthesized to 1-bromobutane.
Swirl the contents of the separatory funnel gently, without the stopper in the funnel. Shaking and mixing until funnel has been vented should be done. Figure 5: Mechanism for reaction of 2-methyl-2-propanol to 2-chloro-2methylbutane Step 1: Pronation Step 2: Carbocation formation Step 3: Nucleophile attack Step 4: Formation of 2-chloro-2-methylbutane The other product produced during an S N1 reaction is 2-chloro-2-methylbutane from 2-methly-2-propanol. In this reaction the leaving group will be water from 2-methyl-2-propanol and the nucleophile is chloride. Allow the contents of the funnel to stand until the mixture has separated into two distinct layers.
If two layers do not separate, consult your instructor. After decanting the product 1-bromobutane, it is then weighed 8. Once layers are separated, mixture is extracted with 2M aqueous sodium hydroxide 10mL and washed with water 20mL. This mechanism will have three steps in which the first step will be the pronation of the alcohol by hydrochloric acid to create a better leaving group. The purpose of the fee is to recover costs associated with the development of data collections included in such sites. Boiling chips were added to the flask in order to prepare it for heating under reflux.
In addition to the last product formed, 2-chloro-2-methybutane also had impurities present because the boiling point was lower than what it should have been. Wash the organic layer with 10mL of H 2O. Transfer your product to a tared sample bottle, appropriately labeled. In this reaction, the water will become the leaving group and the bromide ion will become the nucleophile. By browsing our website without changing the browser settings you grant us permission to store that information on your device.
Once removed extraction technique is done again separately with sodium chloride 25mL , saturated sodium bicarbonate 25mL , water 20mL and lastly with saturated sodium chloride 20mL. Secretary of Commerce on behalf of the U. The amount of side products like our aqueous solution being taken out may be very high. In order to successfully produce the products 1-bromobutane and 2-chloro-2methylbutane the mechanisms of S N2 and S N1 were used. A nucleophile, which is represented by Nuc, attacks the central carbon, which is also attached to the leaving group represented by an X, which will also leave to form its new bond with its lone pairs.
The E1 elimination results from the loss of a proton from the carbocation and a side product of 2-methylpropene may have formed. Discussion Alkyl halides also known as haloalkanes play an important role in industrial uses. Experimental 1-Bromobutane Formed by S N2 Reaction To a round bottom flask 100mL 0. The purpose of this experiment is to produce 1-bromobutane through a S N2 reaction and 2-chloro-2-methylbutane through a S N1 reaction. Thyroxine is an aryl halide that is also known as the thyroid hormone.
