is that at 0 degrees celsius for 12 hours ?
At first I wasn't so sure about this ring structure here, since the nitrogen appears to be missing a hydrogen so I didn't know if it was intended to be a base or what, but in looking at the structures of the propanal and acetonitrile I was guessing some kind of aldol condensation sorta reaction! I looked it up, apparently that molecule is proline (an amino acid actually I have seen this before but didn't recognize it haha) and when I looked here to see what was goin on with its structure, it looks like it forms a zwitterion, so I am still not sure if it is functioning as an acid or a base haha. I looked here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proline#Uses and apparently it is used for several things. Apparently it looks like it acts as a catalyst for aldol condensation so that was a good sign haha! Also if it's a catalyst that means it's probably acting as an acid in the reaction since the aldol reaction is either acid catalyzed or base promoted. WOW I RAMBLE A LOT. Here is my guess at what happens |dw:1449289846446:dw|
klein's orgo textbook talked a lot about proline
I used Solomons and I read some of March's for fun, but past that not much else, I tried looking online for some stuff, this might also be fun to look at: http://www.mhhe.com/physsci/chemistry/carey/student/olc/ch20reactionsnitriles.html Beats me though.
It is mostly about certain characteristic of proline that makes it not part of an alpha-helix due to the lack of N-H proton and how it does not participate in H-Bonding
@nincompoop yep it is
yeah that nitrogen structure is missing a hydrogen, it take so damned long to draw it out i missed that.
