Alkyne synthesis and reactions (2)

Organic chemistry: Electronegativity of alkyne carbons; acidity of alkynes; use of alkynyl anions as nucleophiles for SN2 reactions and for attack on oxacyclopropanes (epoxides). Alkyne synthesis from dihaloalkanes by double elimination; alkyne synthesis from alkenes by halogenation-double dehydrohalogenation. Hydrogenation of alkynes; hydrogenation of alkynes with Lindlar catalyst to form cis alkenes; sequential one-electron reduction of alkynes with sodium metal to form trans alkenes. Electrophilic addition of HX to alkynes; electrophilic addition of X2 to alkynes (halogenation). Enols; tautomerization; mercuric ion-catalyzed hydration of alkynes to form ketones This is a recording of a tutoring session, posted with the students' permission.
