Determining Absolute Configuration of a Secondary Alcohol Using TLC
Absolute Configuration Lab
WEDNESDAY - 05.21.14
The catalyst is reacting with a chiral, secondary, aromatic alcohol to produce an ester.
In this competing method, one enantiomer will react with the alcohol faster than the other.
According to mnemonic…
Reaction Conversion A:
6322.711/(6322.711+3928.116) =.6168 x 100 =
Reaction Conversion for B: 11599.731/(11599.731+610.962) = .9947 X 100 =
Alcohol + anhydride = ester
[+catalyst to speed up rxn]
The CEC method involves reacting an unknown alcohol with each enantiomer of the catalyst: R-HBTM and S-HBTM.
Enzymes (catalysts) are sterospecific 3D molecules; chirality is key for a rxn b/c specific fit induces binding to substrate.
Enantiomers are mirror images of chiral centers. They are identical except in optical activity and interactions with other chiral centers.
Basis for Mnemonic
Specific pairing is due to sterics and proximity of functional groups.
Theory - TLC Analysis
Density and Integration
Reaction Conversion = integration of ester / (integration of ester + integration of alcohol) x 100
How does density correlate with reaction rate??
M. Kubota - 40804 - 51LC
Unknown: 4-bromo-a-benzylmethyl alcohol
Faster Reaction: B
Catalyst of faster reaction: R-HBTM
Absolute configuration of unknown: S
Configuration of the HBTM catalyst and the unknown alcohol was determined by reacting them together and analyzing them with TLC.
- S-4-Bromo-α-methylbenzyl alcohol and R-HBTM
- Properly add in the reagents in a timely manner
- Allow for complete reaction (full hour)
- Gas chromatography
- NMR Spectroscopy
