Aromatic Heterocyclic Compounds: Reactivity and Orientation

Organic Chemistry

There are many types of compounds that have aromatic properties. When a molecule contains a benzene ring, all compounds exhibit aromatic characters. However, there are aromatic compounds that are different from benzene rings. These are heterocyclic compounds. Aromatic heterocyclic compounds are compounds that show aromaticity but have different properties than benzene rings. What should we […]

Carbonyl Reduction: Hydride Reduction of NaBH4 and LiAlH4

Organic Chemistry

Changing the form of the functional group to the substituent you want is important in organic chemistry. When you perform a synthetic reaction, you have to synthesize a compound that has the functional group you want. One of those synthetic reactions is carbonyl reduction. Among the reduction reactions, the reduction of carbonyl compounds is an […]

HSAB Theory: Meaning the Hard/Soft of Acids and Bases

Organic Chemistry

In organic chemistry, synthetic reactions are often carried out by acids and bases. The reaction of a Lewis acid and a Lewis base creates new bonds. So when a compound reacts chemically, which types of atoms bond with each other? In this regard, the HSAB theory (or HSAB principle) helps us to predict where compounds […]
