Experiment= synthesis of n-butyl bromide, using n-butyl alcohol, NaBr, H2SO4. A) An ether and an alkene are formed as by-products in this reaction. Draw the structures of these by-products and give mechanisms for their formation.
I believe the two products are dibutyl ether and 1-butene? I know each of their line structures, but I don't know about the mechanisms? Any Help?
