This is a Laboratory Journal of Organic Chemistry Note for synthesis reaction data obtained in the Organic Chemistry Laboratory — all information was experimentally conducted. This article should be used as a reference when conducting your own synthesis reactions.
The three synthesis reactions covered in this experiment are all substitution reactions. The first synthesis is a reflex reaction leading to yielding of primary alcohol, and involves 2 reactants – NaBr and H2SO4. Since it is bimolecular in nature, it can be easily classified as a Sn2 reaction.
The second synthesis can be carried out easily in the presence of only one ...
