X2 + OH, O3,  Peroxyacid, SeO2, DCC, DDQ

SeO2 [Selenium Dioxide] It is a very important oxidizing reagent which is used for the oxidation of  allyl or allylic hydrogen into alcohol.  There are some important points which must be followd during the oxidation process be SeO2.
Rule 1: Oxidation always occurs at more substituted site of double bond.
Rule 2: If there is possibility of two different types of allylic position out of which one present in the ring & other present outside the ring then SeO2 perform oxidation at the allylic position present in the ring.

Mechanism of oxidation by SeO2 

During the process of oxidation with SeO2 first of all ene reaction will occur which will followed by [2, 3] sigmatropic rearrangement and after the hydrolysis process allylic alcohol is formed.

If the alkene possesses a methyl substituent, oxidative cleavage of C (elimination of a selenium atom and water) furnishes the corresponding , β-unsaturated aldehyde. Lower yields of products were obtained when using stoichiometric amounts of SeO2. t-Butyl hydroperoxide is used to reoxidize selenium. Besides giving the desired carbony1 compounds, the reaction may also produce allylic alcohols as side products.

In some cases SeO2 can also behave as dehydrogenating reagent.

In the case of alkynes & alkenes it can also give hydroxylation & mechanism of hydroxylation is anti-hydroxylation or trans-hydroxylation.

DCC
It will behave as a coupling reagent by condensastion.  It acts as a dehydrating reagent; hence it is stored under the anhydrous condition.

Dichloro dicyano Quinone [DDQ]

Non Metal Based - Reagents Chemistry Notes | EduRev

It is the special reagent which helps in the removal of hydrogen from the substrate means it will behave as dehydrogenating agent.
In many cases if cyclic ring is present then it will aromatize that ring and gain aromaticity.

Mechanism of DDQ: In the mechanism of DDQ, first of all it will abstract the hydride from the substrate and form the cation and then followed by the removal of proton produce the double bond.

Oxidation Peroxy Acid [RCO3H] 

Acids The reaction of alkenes with peroxy acids provides for convenient and selective oxidation of double bonds.
The peroxy acids most commonly used in the laboratory are m-chloroperoxybenzoic acid (mCPBA), monoperoxyphthalic acid magnesium salt (MMPP), peroxybenzoic acid, peroxyformic acid, peroxyacetic acid, trifluoroperoxyacetic acid, and t-butyl hydroperoxide [(CH3)3COOH]. The order of reactivity for epoxidation of alkenes follows the trend CF3CO3H > mCPBA ~ HCO3H > CH3CO3H >> H2O2 >

Stereoselectivity: Epoxidation involves an electrophilic syn-addition of the oxygen moiety of the peroxy acid to the double bond. The concerted formation of two new C—O bonds ensures that the reaction is stereospecific: cisalkenes furnish the corresponding cis-epoxides and trans-alkenes the corresponding trans-isomers (racemic).

With conformationally rigid cyclic alkenes, the reagent preferentially approaches the double bond from the less hindered side.

Non Metal Based - Reagents Chemistry Notes | EduRev

Chemoselectivity: The rate of epoxidation increases with the number of electron-donating substituents on the double bond. The order of alkene reactivity with peroxy acids is as follows

Non Metal Based - Reagents Chemistry Notes | EduRev  Non Metal Based - Reagents Chemistry Notes | EduRev

Hence, the more nucleophilic (more substituted) double bonds of the diene and triene depicted below undergo preferential epoxidation when treated with an equimolar amount of the peroxy acid.

Non Metal Based - Reagents Chemistry Notes | EduRev

Conjugation of the alkene double bond with an electron-withdrawing group reduces the rate of epoxidation. Thus, α, β-unsaturated carboxylic acids and esters require a stronger oxidant, such as trifluoroperoxyacetic acid, for oxidation.

Hydroxyl-Directed Epoxidation with Peroxy Acids 

Although epoxidation of cyclic alkenes occurs preferentially from the less hindered side, the presence of a polar substituent near the double bond may reverse the facial direction of attack by the peroxide. For example, introduction of an allylic OH group onto the substrate provides a means for interaction with the peroxy acid by hydrogen bonding and thereby promotes stereoselective epoxidation. Cycloalkenes with an OH group at the allylic position are attacked by peroxy acids syn to the double bond to give the corresponding cis-epoxy alcohol diastereomers, even if that face is sterically more hindered. It is assumed that the directive effect of the hydroxyl group is due to hydrogen bonding between the hydroxyl group and the peroxy acid, stabilizing the transition state for epoxidation. If the OH group is replaced by an acetate group, a nearly equimolar mixture of diastereomeric epoxides is observed.

The hydroxyl-directed epoxidation of alkenes using peroxy acids is sensitive to the nature of the solvent. In the example below,  alkene epoxidation occurs on the more accessible a-face when Et2O is used as solvent, whereas the use of CH2C12 promotes hydroxyl-directed epoxidation on the b-face of the alkene.

Ozone [O3]

Non Metal Based - Reagents Chemistry Notes | EduRev

Ozonolysis is widely used both in degradation work to locate the position of double bonds and in the preparation of aldehydes, ketones, and carboxylic acids.

 

Chemoselective cleavage: The electrophilic ozone preferentially attacks a more nucleophilic double bond it is possible to achieve chemoselective cleavage in compounds containing two or more double bonds by limiting the amount of ozone. The relative reactivity of double bonds toward ozone decreases in the following order:

The example depicted below indicates preferential cleavage of the electron-rich enol ether double bond over the trisubstituted one by the electrophilic ozone. Thus, Birch reduction of methoxy-substituted benzenes followed by ozonolysis of the resultant enol ethers provides a powerful route to functionally substituted (Z) alkenes.

In competition of a more nucleophilic trisubstituted double bond with a terminal disubstituted one, ozone exhibits a high preference for the former.

Ozone is a l,3-dipolar species and undergoes 1,3-dipolar cycloadditions with alkenes.

There are two modes used to decompose ozonides:

1. Reductive: Me2S, Zn—AcOH, H2/Pd, KI-CH3OH, metal hydrides

2. Oxidative: H2O2

HIO4 [periodic acid]

Cleavage of glycols derived from OsO4 or KMnO4 oxidation of alkenes by periodates or by periodic acid (HIO4·2H2O) results in two carbonyl fragments whose structures depend on the degree of substitution of the double bond. The mechanism for periodate cleavage of glycols involves a cyclic periodate ester, which undergoes decomposition into two carbonyl fragments. Both cis- and trans- l,2-dihydroxycyclo-hexanes are cleaved but the trans-isomer at slower rate.

Below are summarized some cleavage possibilities of 1,2-diols, an a-hydroxyketone, and a 1,2-ketone with sodium periodate in EtOH—H2O.

N-Bromo succinimide [NBS] 

Most important use of N-bromo succinimide is bromination at allylic, benzylic or proparglic position bromination.Mechanism of this bromination is free radical substitution there are two ways for this free radical substitution.

(1) NBS + hn or NBS/CCl4/Δ                             Non Metal Based - Reagents Chemistry Notes | EduRev

The rate of bromination at proparglic position is more than that of allylic position.
The free radical substitution at bridge head position can possible with NBS.  The free radical substitution at chiral carbon proceeds with retention in configuration.
