What does br2 and CCl4 do in a reaction?
Also to know is, what major product is formed when Heptyne is treated with br2 in CCl4?
Answer: Option A is the Answer. produces a trans product that is, a alkenyl bromide. It is a trans intermediate on further halogenations produces a tetrabromopentane.
Also, will br2 dissolve in CCl4? Br2 is much more soluble in tetrachloromethane,CCl4, than it is in water.
Just so, what happens when br2 is added to ethylene?
The electrophilic addition of bromine to ethene The double bond breaks, and a bromine atom becomes attached to each carbon. The bromine loses its original red-brown color to give a colorless liquid. In the case of the reaction with ethene, 1,2-dibromoethane is formed.
Why CCl4 is used in Hunsdiecker reaction?
The Hunsdiecker reaction (also called the Borodin reaction or the Hunsdiecker–Borodin reaction) is a name reaction in organic chemistry whereby silver salts of carboxylic acids react with a halogen to produce an organic halide. CCl4 just acts as a solvent which is actually used for the smooth conduct of the reaction.
