This study also shows omission behavior of some heterocyclic compounds with respect to their aromatic/anti aromatic/non aromatic nature due. Table 1: Aromatic, anti-aromatic and non-aromatic behavior of organic compounds. You can determine whether a ring system is aromatic, anti-aromatic, or non- aromatic by determining whether it meets certain conditions. To be aromatic, a.

Aromatic Behavior of some heterocyclic compounds containing different DLP based hetero atoms one contains vacant d orbitals:. Reaction B does not happen at all.

If a compound has: Remark on Nature of compound. We will first take a look at the rules a compound must follow to be aromatic, and then, we will get to the questions that we must ask — to decide aromaticity. In the second aomatic, the compound must be cyclic, planar i.

Can you guess what? Examples have been illustrated in Table 1. Reaction, Mechanisms and Structure, 4th ed.

Cyclobutadiene or [4] annulene Cyclic, Planar. Predicting Aromatic behavior In the first case, the compound must be cyclic, planar i. Planarity of heterocyclic compounds depends on the nature of the hybridization state of carbon and hetero atoms present in it. Epoxidation of acetylene to form oxirene is unknown. N3 Formal Charge Exercise: Non Aromatic Behavior of some heterocyclic compounds containing same DLP based heteroatom having no d orbitals:.


Cyclooctatrienyl cation Cyclic, non-planar due to one sp 3 hybridized carbon atom adjacent to positive charge. Practice Problems No technique does you any good unless you try it. Some are anti-aromatic and some are non-aromatic.

The nitrogen on the left has a lone pair next to the double bond. Conventional method for identification of Non Aromatic Nature of organic Compound: Due to the interaction of the hydrogen of 1 and 6 compound become non planar.

How to Easily predict Aromatic & Anti-aromatic compounds?

Not aromatic Due to the interaction of the hydrogen of 1 and 6 compound become non planar. Rings whose Lewis diagram implies a loop of pi electrons can be classified into three classes: What Makes A Good Nucleophile?

Jerry March, Advanced Organic Chemistry: It represents aromtic series of numbers. The ring is planar.

All aromatic rings share two structural features:. See if you can spot a ring in any of these compounds. Test out what you learnt on these sample problems. Why is it unstable? This example suggests that the number of pi electrons in anti-aromatic molecules follows the sequence 4, 8, 12….


NH4 Formal Charge Exercise: Any compound that lacks one or more of the above features i. All antiaromatic rings share two features: What this tells us is that even when a molecule fulfills all the conditions cyclic, conjugated, flat, 4 pi electronsthe symmetric geometry is particularly unstable.

Identifing Aromatic and Anti-Aromatic Compounds – Chemistry LibreTexts

If not, check out this link where I talk about resonance. And so they are non-aromatic.

These compounds have been represented in the Table 2. When lone pair antairomatic electron of hetero atom undergo delocalization through conjugation then it is to be treated as delocalized lone pair of electron DLP.
