Electrophilic addition reactions – the general picture In electrophilic reactions, pi-bonded electrons act as bases and nucleophiles.

To continue the chain elongation process, another IPP molecule can then condense, aeicion a very similar reaction, with C 1 of geranyl diphosphate to form a carbon product called farnesyl diphosphate FPP. The addition is completed by attack of a water nucleophile step 2which then collapses into a carbonyl step 3driving off the phosphate.

This rule of thumb is known as Markovnikov’s ruleafter the Russian chemist Vladimir Markovnikov who proposed it in Two different products are possible, and in general the product which predominates will electrofi,ica the one that is derived from the lower-energy carbocation intermediate.

A very important point to notice in the electrophilic addition reaction above is that, if the starting alkene is asymmetrical, there are two possible courses that could be followed, depending on which of the two alkene carbons forms the new sigma bond in the first step. ExampleEnd The following has electrofiluca to do with electrophilic addition, but while we are on the subject of protecting groups for alcohols it is worthwhile to mention tert -butyldimethylsilyl TBDMS ethers.

A thiolate is a very powerful nucleophile, and thus is able to push the pyrophosphate leaving group off, implying some degree of S N 2 character. Notice that the enzyme specifically takes the pro-R proton in this step. So it makes perfect sense that the chain elongation reaction should more S N 1-like than S N 2-like.

The electrophilic double bond isomerization catalyzed by IPP isomerase is a highly reversible reaction, with an equilibrium IPP: In this reaction, the methyl group of SAM is the electrophile which attracts electrofilkca pi electrons of a double bond in an unsaturated fatty acid. This can result either in a change in location of the double bond an isomerization – pathway A belowor substitution of an electrophile for a proton pathway B below. The electrons in a pi bond, in contrast, are only weakly nucleophilic, aidcion thus need to be pulled in by a powerful electrophile – ie.

In aqueous acid, water adds to alkenes with a similar mechanism this is also referred to as hydration of an alkene.

Glyphosate is a potent inhibitor of EPSP synthase, and thus plants exposed to it die because they are not able to synthesize aromatic amino acids. In most cases, biochemical pathways have electrfoilica in such a way that electrophilic addition reactions to asymmetrical alkenes proceed through the more stable of the two possible carbocation intermediates, which of course makes the enzyme’s job easier it doesn’t have to ‘force’ the formation of the inherently less stable intermediate.

The two electrons shared in this pi bond are, on average, further electrofilifa from the carbon nuclei than the sigma-bonded electrons, and thus are held less tightly. In the process of isoprenoid chain construction, isopentenyl diphosphate IPPwhich is the essential ‘building block’ for all isoprenoid moleculesis first isomerized to dimethylallyl diphosphate DMAPP by an enzyme called ‘IPP isomerase’. If the mechanism is S N 2-like, the fluorine substitutions should not have a noticeable effect, because a carbocation intermediate would not be formed.

The initial protonation step could follow two different pathways, resulting in two different carbocation intermediates: In each of the enzymatic examples described in the following section, we will consider the inherent stability of the cationic intermediate. An alternate regiochemical course could addicion in a seven-membered ring and a secondary carbocation, a much less energetically favorable intermediate in terms of both carbocation stability and ring size recall that six-membered rings are lower in energy then seven-membered rings.

We know how to answer this question experimentally – just run the reaction with fluorinated DMAPP or GPP substrates and observe how much the fluorines slow things down see section 9.

In an electrophilic addition reaction, a nearby nucleophile often water will quickly donate a pair of electrons to form a new sbond, and with four sigma bonds the carbon will change to sp 3 hybridization.

According to the Hammond postulate section 6. It is more accurate to use the more general principle that has already been stated above: This process has intrigued and perplexed enzymologists for decades, and is thought to proceed via a short-lived tetrahedral intermediate that is the result of an electrophilic addition of S3P to PEP.

In the example above, the difference in carbocation stability can be accounted for by the electron-donating effects of the extra methyl group on one side of the double bond. When this experiment was performed with FPP synthase, the results were dramatic: In this case, the pyrophosphate group on DMAPP is the leaving group, and the electrophilic species is the resulting allylic carbocation.


The carbocation that does form is clearly the more stable of the two, due mainly the electron-donating resonance effect of the adjacent phosphate oxygen. The unhybridized p orbitals on the two alkene carbons overlap, in a side-by-side fashion, to form the pi bond, which protrudes above and below the plane formed by the sigma bonds.

Instead, a glutamate residue acts as a base, abstracting a proton from C 2 of the intermediate to initiate an elimination. As a result, the predominant product is the secondary rather than the tertiary bromoalkane.

Now when HBr is added, it is the less substituted carbocation that forms faster in the rate-determining protonation step, because in this intermediate the carbon bearing the positive charge is located further away from the electron-withdrawing, cation-destabilizing fluorines. Notice that the mechanism at the methyl carbon is simply an S N 2-like displacement of the sulfide leaving group, presumably with inversion of stereochemistry.

Because the tuberculosis-causing bacterium in particular is becoming increasingly resistant to existing drugs, this enzyme is of interest to scientists working to develop new antibiotic treatments.

It is relatively simple to understand how the lone pair of electrons on a thiol group could be nucleophilic – they are free and unbonded, a clear case of electron richness. Because the protonation step is the rate determining step for the reaction, the tertiary alkyl bromide A will form much faster than the secondary alkyl halide B, and thus A will be the predominant product observed in this reaction.

This makes sense, because the first step involves breaking an existing bond and forming a high energy carbocation intermediate this process has a high energy barrierwhereas the second step involves quenching that intermediate and forming a new bond this process has a very low energy barrier. If you look carefully at this product of this reaction, you should recognize that it is a cyclic acetal section For example, recall that a Grignard reagent section We have already discussed the mechanisms of steps 2 and 3, which are E1 eliminations section If protonation and subsequent deprotonation occur on the same side of a molecule, it is referred to as a suprafacial transposition.

This in turn means that less energy is required to pull the pi-bonded electrons out of their orbital – they are, in other words, more reactive.
