What is the reagent and conditions required for the formation of a nitrile from a haloalkane?
Reagent: KCN / Conditions: Alcoholic
1 of 8
Why does the KCN not react with benzene but reacts with haloalkane?
haloalkane attacked by nucleophiles; electron rich delocalised electrons in benzene; repels nucleophiles
2 of 8
What is the reagent, condition and type of mechanism involved in the conversion of benzene into methylbenzene?
Reagent: Chloromethane and ALCL3/ Conditions: anhydrous/ Type: Electrophilic substitution
3 of 8
Explain why butylbenzene is obtained only as a minor by-product in the reaction between but-1-ene and benzene
Primary carbocation is less stable due to inductive effect than the secondary that is also formed.
4 of 8
What type of reaction is this and what reagents are used?
Type: Electrophilic substitution Reagents: ALCL3
5 of 8
What type of reaction is this and what reagents are used?
Type: Reduction Reagents: NaBH4
6 of 8
What type of reaction is this and what reagents are used?
Type: Elimination Reagents: H2SO4
7 of 8
Explain why butylamine is stronger than ammonia?
Lone pair on N; R group increases electron density; Has positive inductive effect
