I am curious to know the mechanism of each reaction. Organic chemistry is satisfying for me because there is a mechanism behind each reaction which make a sense but when I Google for the mechanism of inorganic reaction I do not find any good results. I applied an organic reaction mechanism on an inorganic reaction and it worked as shown in the picture. By summarizing "Can we apply organic reaction mechanisms to inorganic reactions?"enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ It would be nice to see your proposed mechanism (try to reduce image size or try VPN if your ISP is known for blocking stuff), but in general the question boils down to what makes sense and what doesn't. Mechanisms work fine for molecular substances, but are quirky when one tries to use them for network solid, which prevail in inorganic chemistry. BTW there is an entire book devoted to the mechanisms in inorganic chemistry: Ghosh and Berg's Arrow pushing in inorganic chemistry. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ If I were you, I would refrain from assuming your question is stupid. If you did the research and gave it a good thinking, but you still cannot come up with the solution or rationalization, it is stupid not to ask. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Actually I googled a lot and can not found anything related...so I thought maybe my question is soo easy that there is no need to answer it. $\endgroup$ Dec 29 '19 at 9:00
