Grignard Reactions
with Acid Chlorides
and Esters
• Use two moles of Grignard reagent.
• The product is a tertiary alcohol with
two identical alkyl groups.
• Reaction with one mole of Grignard
reagent produces a ketone
intermediate, which reacts with the
second mole of Grignard reagent.
=>
Grignard + Acid
Chloride (1)
• Grignard attacks the carbonyl.
• Chloride ion leaves.

Second step of reaction
• Second mole of Grignard reacts with the
ketone intermediate to form an alkoxide ion.
• Alkoxide ion is protonated with dilute acid.

Limitations of Grignard
• No water or other acidic protons like
O-H, N-H, S-H, or -C—C-H. Grignard
reagent is destroyed, becomes an alkane.
• No other electrophilic multiple bonds, like
C=N, C—N, S=O, or N=O.
=>
Reduction of Carbonyl
• Reduction of aldehyde yields 1º alcohol.
• Reduction of ketone yields 2º alcohol.
• Reagents:
– Sodium borohydride, NaBH4
– Lithium aluminum hydride, LiAlH4
– Raney nickel
=>
Sodium Borohydride
• Hydride ion, H , attacks the carbonyl
carbon, forming an alkoxide ion.
• Then the alkoxide ion is protonated by
dilute acid.
• Only reacts with carbonyl of aldehyde or
ketone, not with carbonyls of esters or
carboxylic acids.

Lithium Aluminum Hydride
• Stronger reducing agent than sodium
borohydride, but dangerous to work with.
• Converts esters and acids to 1º alcohols.

Comparison of
Reducing Agents
• LiAlH4 is stronger.
• LiAlH4 reduces more
stable compounds
which are resistant
to reduction.
=>
Catalytic Hydrogenation
• Add H2 with Raney nickel catalyst.
• Also reduces any C=C bonds.

•
Sulfur analogues of alcohols, -SH.
Named by adding -thiol to alkane name.
The -SH group is called mercapto.
Complex with heavy metals: Hg, As, Au.
More acidic than alcohols, react with
NaOH to form thiolate ion.

Thiol Synthesis
Use a large excess of sodium hydrosulfide
with unhindered alkyl halide to prevent
dialkylation to R-S-R.
