Aqueous sodium bicabonate used to wash the crude n-butyl bromide.
a) What was the purpose of this wash? Give equation.
b)Why would it be undesirable to waash the crude halide with aqueous sodium hydroxide?

  • organic chemistry -

    alkene will form

  • organic chemistry -

    pito

  • organic chemistry -

    the purpose of using bicarbonate was to nutralize the acid.
    if we used sodium hydroxide we would not form t-pently chloride. we will be competing sn1 and e1 forming an alkene
