General mechanism[ edit ] The chain mechanism is as follows, using the chlorination of methane as a typical example:
Thank you for all great resources. Reply james Good question. Lewis acidity is essentially electrophilicity. Acidity Bronsted acidity is what we call it when the electrophile is a proton.
What is the link between being too basic and the hydride in NaH not being able to carry out the nucleophilic attack? NaH is generally not observed to add to aldehydes and ketones, although it will add to Lewis acids such as borane BH3.
You can think about the rates of competing reactions — 1 addition of hydride to aldehyde slow versus 2 deprotonation of the alpha-carbon by hydride fast and the latter reaction prevails. Reply Subhasismahapatro NaH acts as a non nucleophilic base so basically involves in deprotonation rather in addition of the hydride to the carbonyl.
In general all non nucleophilic base acts by the same mechanism. Reply James Ashenhurst The best guide to basicity is by looking at a pKa table. The pka of water is James This was not a clear cut example where one could point to periodic trends.
However with nitrogen being coordinated to C in -CN using that principle, they would draw the wrong conclusion. Because multiple variables are in play [we are changing the basic atom as well as the substituents connected to that atom] the only recourse is to check a pKa table because the effect of changing two variables at once is not easily predictable.
This site is not deficient in describing why certain species are stronger acids and bases according to a set of principles.
I have a whole series of articles where I discuss acidity trends and refer to electronegativity, polarizability, resonance, adjacent electron withdrawing groups, and even aromaticity.
The point of the current article is to mention that basicity is measured by pKa — it is an equilibrium — whereas nucleophilicity is measured by rate.
So only a brief treatment of basicity was given here, with reference to the series on acid-base reactions. Reply marcus hiller You are correct in all of your assumptions.
O being more electronegative would make it the weaker base IF the N was holding the negative charge however, the base you listed actually has the negative charge on the carbon molecule, so in this case your comparison is not applicable.(advanced subsidiary chemistry specification syllabus H) Doc Brown's Unofficial Support for OCR GCE AS Chemistry.

October 16, Locker: D Thursday PMPM Lab 5 – Relative Rates of Free Radical Bromination Purpose: In the free-radical chain bromination of hydrocarbons, a process of adding bromine to various hydrocarbons determines the relative reactivities of the hydrogens in C-H bond toward bromine atom.
This process of bromination is useful %(7). two factors are observed in gas phase free-radical chlorination 1 and bromination 2 of alkyl halides. For example, the gas phase chlorinations of butane, 1-chlorobutane, and 2-chlorobutane 1 (Table I) show deactiva tion of the /8-position.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
In organic chemistry, free radical halogenation is a type of halogenation. This chemical reaction is typical of alkanes and alkyl-substituted aromatics under application of heat or UV light. The reaction is used for the industrial synthesis of chloroform (CHCl 3), dichloromethane (CH 2 Cl 2), and.
