The Wittig reaction or Wittig olefination is a chemical reaction of an aldehyde or ketone with a triphenyl phosphonium ylide (often called a Wittig reagent) to give an alkene and triphenylphosphine oxide. The Wittig reaction was discovered in by Georg Wittig, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in Exploring the Wittig Reaction: A Collaborative Guided-Inquiry Experiment for the Organic Chemistry Laboratory.

Wittig Reaction: Alkenes from Carbonyl Compounds Study Questions 1) Why is it important that the aldehydes added to the ylide be free of carboxylic acids? (Hint: consider what a proton will do if added to the ylide.) Answer: Because the acidic proton on the carboxylic acid will protonate the negatively charged carbon, destroying the Size: 48KB.

The reaction of an aldehyde or ketone with a phosphonium ylide to an alkene and a phosphine oxide is known as Wittig reaction or Wittig Olefination reaction.. This reaction was discovered in by Georg Wittig, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in * The yields of di- and tri-substituted alkenes from aldehydes and ketones are very high but yields of tetra-substituted.

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded jointly to Herbert C. Brown and Georg Wittig "for their development of the use of boron- and phosphorus-containing compounds, respectively, into important reagents in organic synthesis". Early work on the 1,2-Wittig rearrangement was mechanistically inspired. As indicated in Table 2, yields of products tended to be moderate and harsh conditions were often effects of structural variation on reaction rates and product composition can be accommodated by a pathway involving homolysis of an α-anion intermediate and recombination of the radical and radical anion. The Wittig reaction produces Z alkenes. A variation of the Wittig reaction, called the Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons (HWE) reaction gives E alkenes. The mechanism of the HWE reaction resembles that of the Wittig reaction. We will discuss the mechanism in greater detail in Chap when we discuss the chemistry of hydrogens that are α to carbonyl. Review from previous edition: "If you want a really good book about organic chemistry get Organic Chemistry by Clayden, Greeves, Warren and Wothers." Nick is a Cambridge graduate, obtaining his PhD there in for work on the stereoselective Horner-Wittig reaction with Stuart Warren. He then held a Harkness Fellowship at the University of /5(43).
