Can someone please explain the bonding in a bridged metal carbonyl (like diiron nonacarbonyl)? I cannot understand what kind of bonds (sigma/pi) exist between the bridging carbonyls and the metals. ...
Ketones are relatively much harder to oxidise, but they do undergo oxidation reactions at extreme temperatures. Our teacher also told us about the popoff's rule which says that during oxidation of ...
In the oxidation of cyclododecanol to cyclododecanone. In the work up step, after I added diethyl ether and then separated the two layers, organic and aqueous. Then I added diethyl ether again, ...
Why do Organolithium or Grignard reagents act as nucleophiles and not as bases with aldehydes and ketones
I've read entire Chapter 14: Organometallic Compounds of Francis Carey's "Organic Chemistry" but I still didn't get an answer to my question. Quote from the book: Because of their basicity ...
I was reading MECHANISM OF α-HALOGENATION OF ALDEHYDES AND KETONES: As you can see in the third step. Bromide ion is picking up a base from protonated acetone. Doesn't that step mean that ...
