Question on Addition Reaction
When but-3-en-2-ol reacts with aq. HBr, how many products are formed and what are they?
What is the relative amounts of 1-bromopropane and 2-bromopropane obtained from the photochemical bromination of propane, if the relative reactivity of 1° : 2° : 3° Hydrogens to photochemical bromination is 1 : 82 : 1600?
Iodide ion is a good nucleophile as well as a good leaving group in nucleophilic substitution reactions. Is this statement true or false?
The following two methods can be used to convert benzene into ethylbenzene;
1. Reacting benzene with ethyl benzene and aluminium chloride (Friedel Craft’s Alkylation)
2. Reacting benzene with acetyl chloride and aluminium chloride to produce methyl phenyl ketone (Friedel Craft’s Acylation) followed by Clemmensen’s Reduction
Which out of the above two is the best suited method and why?
