Thermal alkyl [1,3] shifts, similar to [1,3] hydride shifts, must proceed antarafacially. Here the geometry of the transition state is prohibitive, but an alkyl group , due to the nature of its orbitals, can invert its geometry, form a new bond with the back lobe of its sp 3 orbital, and therefore proceed via a suprafacial shift.
A 1,2-rearrangement or 1,2-migration or 1,2-shift or Whitmore 1,2-shift is an organic reaction where a substituent moves from one atom to another atom in a chemical compound.In a 1,2 shift the movement involves two adjacent atoms but moves over larger distances are possible. In the example below the substituent R moves from carbon atom C 2 to C 3.
A 1,2-hydride shift is a carbocation rearrangement in which a hydrogen atom in a carbocation migrates to the carbon atom bearing the formal charge of +1 (carbon 2) from an adjacent carbon (carbon 1). eg: see also 1,2-alkyl shift, 1,2-aryl shift. Contributors.

Illustrated Glossary of Organic Chemistry. 1,3-Hydrogen shift or [1,3]-H shift: A sigmatropic rearrangement in which a hydrogen atom migrates to a new spot two atoms away from its starting spot, with simultaneous shift of a pi bond. While a [1,3]-H shift is ...
This video discusses when hydride and methyl shifts occur during a carbocation rearrangement. I hope you find this video to be helpful in your organic chemistry course.
1,3-Hydride and Greater Shifts. Typically, hydride shifts can occur at low temperatures. However, by heating the solutionf of a cation, it can easily and readily speed the process of rearrangement. One way to account for a slight barrier is to propose a 1,3-hydride shift interchanging the functionality of two different kinds of methyls.
In thermal reactions, [1,5]H shifts occur suprafacially but [1,3]H and [1,7]H shifts must be antarafacial. Antarafacial [1,3]H shifts are impossible because a rigid 3-carbon chain is too short to allow the H atom to transfer from the top to the bottom. For [1,7]H shifts the much longer chain is flexible enough to allow the transfer.
Organic chemistry tutorial video on hydride shift and methyl shift in reaction mechanisms. Learn why carbocation rearrangements occur and recognize patterns to indicate a hydride or methyl shift based on the available groups on your organic compound
1,2-hydride shifts or 1,2-alkyl shifts In the past I have found student have a hard time knowing when to do a 1,2 shift, so here is a micro-review on carbocation rearrangements. Carbocation rearrangements occur most frequently on secondary carbocations. Simple alkyl primary carbocations are too high in energy to form so you don’t tend to see a
