|WikiProject Chemistry||(Rated C-class, Mid-importance)|
I don't think many people have really looked at either page that much since they've been written, so I'll just do it myself if I don't get any feedback about it in a week or so. Ghiles 08:22, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
- Opposed to merge: an imine is not an reaction and Alkylimino-de-oxo-bisubstitution is not a functional group, that should be obvious. Please recognize that wiki contains about 300 organic reactions and about 200 functional groups and that you can interconvert functional groups with the aid of the reactions. If you start merging things get messy. Please consult the rules on merging: this proposal hardly qualifies and I will remove the notices within 24 hours V8rik 17:57, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Oh, My Ketone!
(to the tune of "Oh, My Darling Clementine")
Oh, my ketone! Oh, my ketone! And my primary amine. You reacted, lost some water and You formed a new imine.
Now the lone pair on the N then Bonds with carbonyl C. Pi electrons go to O, a Proton shifts fast as can be.
Now the O is feeling greedy Grabs an H from OH3. Free electrons from the N then Form a pi bond, water leaves.
Now the N is protonated And a plus charge can be seen. So the water yanks the H off And we've formed a new imine.
I don't know how to change pictures for articles but the picture in this article is most definitely NOT an imine. It's a trisubstituted olefin. It doesn't even contain a nitrogen! Please change. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 20:28, 23 January 2010 (UTC)
- thanks for the notice, someone recently made an incorrect image switch but the image has been switched back V8rik (talk) 20:39, 23 January 2010 (UTC)
"It may be regarded as an ammonia (NH3) molecule in which two hydrogen atoms have been replaced by a group" is not true. In ammonia, nitrogen has a sp3 hibridation. In imines, nitrogen has a sp2 hibridation. The structure of the nitrogen orbitals and, consequently, their space distribution, is not the same in both compounds. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 07:22, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
