Textbook Problem

Structurally, production of a thiocarbonyl compound involves replacement of

  1. a. the carbonyl carbon atom with sulfur
  2. b. the carbonyl oxygen atom with sulfur
  3. c. both the carbonyl carbon and oxygen atoms with sulfur
  4. d. no correct response

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The production of thiocarbonyl compound from carbonyl compound structurally involves what has to be chosen from the given options.

Concept Introduction:

Carbonyl groups are the one which contain a double bond between carbon and oxygen atom.  Aldehydes and ketones possess this carbonyl functional group in it.  The structural representation of a carbonyl group can be given as shown below,

Organic And Biological Chemistry, Chapter 4.12, Problem 1QQ , additional homework tip  1

If either of the carbon atom or the oxygen atom present in the carbonyl group is substituted by sulfur atom means it is known as sulfur-containing carbonyl compounds.

Explanation

Reason for correct option:

In a carbonyl compound, the carbon atom or the oxygen atom of the carbonyl group can be replaced by sulfur atom to obtain sulfur containing carbonyl compounds.

If the carbon atom present in the carbonyl group is replaced sulfoxides are obtained.  They are stable compounds.

If the oxygen atom present in the carbonyl group is replaced by sulfur atom, then thiocarbonyl is obtained.  They are thioaldehydes, thioketones.  Thiocarbonyl compounds are less stable and they tend to decompose readily.

Therefore, the correct option is option (b)...
