Physical properties of alcohols

Physical properties of alcohols

i) Lower members of alcohol are colourless liquid & have distinctive smell but higher members are colourless solid.
ii) Alcohols have more boiling point than alkane, alkyl halide, aldehydes, ketones & ether due to polar bond it forms inter molecular hydrogen bonding, which requires more energy to break hydrogen bonding.
iii) The boiling point of alcohol increases as carbon atom increases due to increase in Van der Waals forces. But as branching in alcohol increases the boiling point decreases.
iv) Lower member are more soluble in water due to hydrogen bonding between alcohol & water. But as the size of alkyl group increases in alcohol the solubility decreases. Boiling point increases as number of –OH group in alcohol molecules increases.

Structure of alcohol

Structure of alcohol

        In alcohols, the oxygen of the –OH group is attached to carbon by a sigma (σ) bond formed by the overlapping of a sp³ hybridised orbital of carbon with a sp³ hybridised orbital of oxygen. The bond angle in alcohols (108.9) is slightly less than the tetrahedral angle (109).  It is due to the repulsion between the unshared electron pairs of oxygen. 
        Figure  depicts structural aspects of methanol. The bond length between C–O is 142 pm & O–H is 96 pm.

Alcohol preparation by Grignard reagents

Alcohol preparation methods by Grignard reagents

         Alcohols are produced by the reaction of Grignard reagents with aldehydes and ketones.
     The first step of the reaction is the nucleophilic addition of Grignard reagent to the carbonyl group to form an adduct. Then hydrolysis of the adduct yields an alcohol.

Alcohol preparation methods by grignard reagent

i) When methanal reacts with methyl magnesium iodide in presence of dry ether to give complex which on acid hydrolysis gives ethanol.

ii) When ethanal reacts with methyl magnesium iodide in presence of dry ether to give complex which on acid hydrolysis gives propan–2–ol.

iii) When propanone reacts with methyl magnesium iodide in presence of dry ether to give complex which on acid hydrolysis gives 2–methylpropan–2–ol.

Alcohol preparation

 Alcohol preparation

From carbonyl compounds (by reduction): 

       Aldehydes can be reduced into primary alcohols & ketones can be reduced into secondary alcohols in presence of catalyst. If ethanal is reacted with H in presence of catalyst Ranyl Ni then ethyl alcohol is formed.

      Aldehydes or ketones also reacted with nascent hydrogen in presence of sodium amalgam (Na – Hg) in water gives alcohol.

         It is also prepared by treating aldehydes & ketones with sodium borohydride (NaBH) or lithium aluminium hydride (LiAlH). Aldehydes yield primary alcohols whereas ketones give secondary alcohols. LiAlH is more reactive than NaBH. LiAlH reacts with water violently hence solvent dry ether or tetrahedral furan required. NaBH & LiAlH donate hydrides hence separate hydrolysis required after reduction. LiAlH reduced only carbonyl group & not unsaturated carbon double bond, hence used to prepare unsaturated alcohols, as follow,

       Carboxylic acids & esters are reduced to primary alcohols by lithium aluminium hydride, a strong reducing agent.

      Esters are more easily reduced than carboxylic acid & form two molecules of alcohols.

      When carboxylic acids & alcohols react in presence of acid forms ester then further catalytic hydrogenation forms alcohols.

33) Match the Xenon compounds in Column-I with its structure in Column-II and 
     assign the correct code: 

         Since XeF is square planar (hence a-ii) & XeF is octahedral here is distorted octahedral (hence b-iii). These two options are matched in (2). 

 34) The manganate and permanganate ions are tetrahedral, due to:
  (1) The π-bonding involves overlap of p-orbitals of oxygen with d-orbitals of manganese
  (2) There is no
  (3) The
