Topic: Hemiacetal

  Hemiacetal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A hemiacetal is a functional group or compound containing the function group in the form of:
A hemiacetal can react with an alcohol under very acidic conditions to form an acetal, and can dissociate to form an aldehyde and an alcohol.
Conversion of hemiacetal to acetal is an SN1 reaction.

 Di- and Polysaccharides
There is another important difference between the hemiacetal and acetal linkages in sugars and saccharides, and that is their reaction with mild oxidizing agents.
The outcome is that in a reducing sugar the anomeric carbon is in an aldehyde or hemiacetal.
For this purpose, the hemiacetal includes the anomeric carbon of a monosaccharide and the alcohol role is played by a specific OH group of a second monosaccharide.

One of the OH group is suitably positioned near the aldehyde group to form a hemiacetal.
A hemiacetal or a hemiketal can be further reacted with alcohols to convert them to acetals and ketals.
The net structural change that occurs during this reaction is theat the OH group in a hemiacetal or a hemiketal is now replaced with a OR group.

Since hemiacetals form and come apart readily even in neutral solution, there will be an equilibration leading to a mixture of the a and b isomers.
Note that lactose has a free hemiacetal at one end of the b (1® 4) disaccharide and is thus a reducing sugar.
If the hemiacetal is first oxidized to an acid, these problems will disappear, because acids or esters are less prone to base catalyzed reactions at the a-carbon than aldehydes.

 Process for the preparation of glyceraldehyde and derivatives thereof - Patent 20010025124
The process of claim 3 wherein the hemiacetal of glyceraldehyde is subjected to a reductive treatment in the presence of ammonia or a primary or secondary amine in order to obtain a 3-aminopropane-1,2-diol derivative.
The process is characterized in that 3-butene-1,2-diol is dissolved in a lower alkanol and subjected to ozonolysis to obtain a 3-hydroperoxy-3-alkoxy-propane-1,2-diol, which is subjected to a reductive treatment to obtain a hemiacetal of glyceraldehyde, which optionally may be converted into glyceraldehyde, or an acetal or a hemiacetal thereof.
The reduction of the formed hydroperoxide and the reductive alkylation of the methoxy hemiacetal of glyceraldehyde were performed at ambient temperature without further cooling until 300 ml of the solution had been converted.

 Carbonyl Reactivity
Most hydrates and hemiacetals (Y = OH & OR), for example, are known to decompose spontaneously to the corresponding carbonyl compounds.
Following acid-catalyzed hydrolysis of the acetal, the resulting 4-hydroxyaldehyde is in equilibrium with its cyclic hemiacetal.
The ylides are another class of nucleophilic organic reagents that add rapidly to the carbonyl function of aldehydes and ketones.

We show that this enzyme is necessary for the conversion of the aflatoxin precursors versiconal hemiacetal acetate to versiconal and versiconal acetate to versiconol, respectively.

 Carbohydrate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The straight-chain structure described here is only one of the forms a monosaccharide may take.
The aldehyde or ketone group may react with a hydroxyl group on a different carbon atom to form a hemiacetal or hemiketal, in which case there is an oxygen bridge between the two carbon atoms, forming a heterocyclic ring.
Rings with five and six atoms are called furanose and pyranose forms and exist in equilibrium with the straight-chain form.

 Hemiacetals, Acetals and the Aldol Reaction
Alcohols react with the carbonyl groups of aldehydes and ketones to produce compounds called hemiacetals.
Let's look first at the first part of the overall reaction, the formation of the hemiacetal.
"How do we get from the hemiacetal to the acetal?" We have to lose an OH Since we know how to put an alcohol on a carbocation (making the hemiacetal), perhaps the way to lose a water is to just reverse the reaction that puts an ROH on a carbocation.

 Acetal Mechanism
The one we predicted is called a hemiacetal.) Since the hemiacetal seems to be about halfway to the acetal, we'll explore converting the hemiacetal into the acetal.
There are a couple of general ideas we can extract from what we did in working out this mechanism.

 Preamble, 2-Carb-0 & 2-Carb-1
Cyclic hemiacetals or hemiketals of sugars with a five-membered (tetrahydrofuran) ring are called furanoses, those with a six-membered (tetrahydropyran) ring pyranoses.
The polyhydric alcohols arising formally from the replacement of a carbonyl group in a monosaccharide with a CHOH group are termed alditols (see 2-Carb-19).
Glycosides are mixed acetals formally arising by elimination of water between the hemiacetal or hemiketal hydroxy group of a sugar and a hydroxy group of a second compound.

O label (*) from 6, it was shown that heavy isotope was retained in 7 without loss in the critical cyclization to versicolorin B (8) (27, 28).
The cyclization of versiconal hemiacetal (7) can be carried out nonenzymatically in the presence of acid to yield versicolorin B (8) as its racemate, which is designated historically as versicolorin C (32, 33).
In this connection it is noteworthy that homogeneous VBS does not contain a bound flavin chromophore and preliminary kinetic evidence suggests that FAD, FMN, and glucose have little or no inhibitory effect on the cyclization of versiconal (7) to versicolorin B (8) (35, 80).
