Topic: Deprotonation

In the News (Sun 26 May 19)

  Deprotonation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Deprotonation is a chemistry term that refers to the removal of a proton (hydrogen ion H
Where the proton is not particularly acidic, and as such, the molecule does not give up its proton easily, a base stronger than the commonly known hydroxides are required.
Hydrides are one of the many types of powerful deprotonating agents.

Deprotonation of α-carbonyl carbon gives a delocalized "carbanion" where the negative charge lies mainly at the enolate oxygen that is derived from the neutral carbonyl oxygen at the substrate.
The deprotonation of the α-CH and α-CH OD groups of hydroxyacetone and the α-CH groups of acetone in the presence of acetate buffer and zinc chloride in D
provides 6.3 and 4.4 kcal/mol stabilizations, respectively, of the transition states for deprotonation of the α-CH OD and α-CH groups of hydroxyacetone by acetate anion (Scheme 2), and a smaller 3.3 kcal/mol stabilization of the transition state for deprotonation of the α-CH group of acetone.

The downfield shift of deprotonated nitrogens results from the dominance of the decrease in shielding in the molecular plane over the concurrent increase (or near constancy) of the out-of-plane shielding.
The charge density rearrangements occurring upon deprotonation are rationalized in terms of the relevant RHF/6-31G+ charge density topologies, within the framework of the quantum theory of atoms in molecules.
The a density made available upon deprotonation at nitrogen is to a great extent transferred to the whole molecular a framework.

Carbon deprotonation is the first step in chemical and biochemical syntheses of new carbon-carbon bonds, so that an understanding of the mechanism for this simple process has broad general relevance to Chemistry and Biology.
There is a good correlation between the rate constant for deprotonation of neutral a-carbonyl carbon by hydroxide ion and the pKa of the carbon acid.
The systematic deviations observed for the rate constants for deprotonation of nitriles, N-protonated derivatives of a-amino acids, and acetate anion from this linear relationship provide interesting insight onto the factors which control the kinetic barrier for proton transfer at carbon.

 JCE 1996 (73) 254 [Mar] The Effect of Solvent and Micelles on the Rate of Excited-State Deprotonation
In aqueous solution, the rate of excited-state deprotonation of the acid form of the ion is much faster than fluorescence and nonradiative decay.
In solvents with high ethanol content, the rate of excited-state deprotonation is much slower than that in aqueous solution and emission occurs mainly from the acid form of the ion.
In such solvents, HPTS exhibits a violet emission with a lambda max at 455 nm which is characteristic of the acid form of the ion.

 Forming Enolates Under Non-Basic Conditions
The standard method of enolate generation is deprotonation of a carbon alpha to an electron-withdrawing group, where the electron-withdrawing group is anything from a carbonyl to a nitrile.
Deprotonation to form an enolate ion is done with a variety of bases, from hydroxide ion to hydride to lithium diisopropyl amide (LDA).
The acidity of the hydrogen in the alpha position is low (pKa range from 18-24, depending upon what is attached to the R position, as shown in Figure 1), so the hydrogen is moderately labile.

Organic chemists are interested in generating nucleophilic carbon because the formation of carbon-carbon bonds lies at the heart of organic synthesis, and the vast majority of carbon-carbon bond forming reactions involve the coupling of a nucleophilic carbon with an electrophilic carbon.
Hence it is possible to deprotonate the methyl group using bases such as sodium amide or n-butyllithium.
Since alkanes are the weakest acids, it is not possible to generate their conjugate bases by deprotonation.

The success of the aldol condensation and the Claisen condensation depends upon the fact that the value of the equilibrium constant for deprotonation of a carbon atom adjacent to a carbonyl group is such that significant concentrations of nucleophilic and electrophilic carbons are present in the reaction mixture simultaneously:
While this reaction might look feasible on paper, the desired outcome is precluded by competition from both the aldol condensation and the Sn2 reaction shown in Equation 2.
In other words, nucleophilic aliphatic substitution competes with deprotonation; direct attack of the hydroxide ion on the methyl carbon of methyl bromide is preferred to attack at one of the methyl hydrogens of acetone.

The Hofmann Rearrangement of amides to give amines follows a complex mechanism including an alkyl group migration and the decarboxylation of a carbamic acid.
The sequence begins with deprotonation of the amide nitrogen by base to give an anion, which reacts with bromine to give an N-bromo amide.
Deprotonation of this intermediate forms an anion which can expel bromide anion with the concurrent migration of the alkyl group from the carbonyl carbon to the nitrogen, yielding an alkyl isocyanate.

X-ray crystallographic structural data indicated the 4-hydroxyl group common to all the inhibitors (found to have a pKa of 4-5) is within hydrogen bonding distance of the two catalytic Asps of the protease.
Thus, it is possible that the loss of inhibitory activity at higher pH is due to deprotonation of the 4-hydroxyl group and loss of an important enzyme-inhibitor interaction.
The dihydropyranone was found to have a pKa=5.6, higher than that of the structurally similar pyranone.
