how do you increase the yield of triphenylmethanol in a grignard reaction?

  • organic chemistry -

    Are you making triphenylmethanol using a Grignard reagent or something different.
    I'm not an organic chemist; however, the two ways of increasing yields in the general field of chemistry is to
    a. increase the concn of the reactants.
    b. remove (distill or otherwise) the products of the reaction.
