Nucleophilic Carbon-Formation and Reaction of a Grignard Reaction

Nucleophilic Carbon-Formation and reaction of a Grignard reagent

Abstract: In this experiment, phenyl benzoate was made in order to react it with methyl benzoate in order to produce the compound triphenylmethanol via a grignard reaction. There was a 37.2% yield of triphenylmethanol, and the melting point obtained was 161-163°C.

Introduction: Grignard reagents are usually formed when alkyl halides and magnesium react together. The carbon and magnesium have a very large difference in electronegativity. This allows the carbon to withdraw the electron density from magnesium through the process of induction.1 Grignard reagents are related to organolithium reagents which are useful and contain carbon atoms that are strongly nucleophilic. They react with a range of carbonyl compounds to make new carbon-carbon bonds. In this lab, phenyl magnesium bromide will be reacted with methyl benzoate to obtain triphenylmethanol which is a grignard reaction.



Place 0.5g of crushed magnesium turnings into 50 mL round bottom flask; add the stir bar, and 5mL of anhydrous ether. Construct an apparatus for slow addition of reagents and also so the reaction can go into reflux. Make up a solution of 2.4mL of bromobenzene in 5mL of anhydrous ether in a dry flask then add it to the separatory funnel. Add about 0.5mL of bromobenzene of the bromobenzene solution to the mixture of magnesium and ether, with vigorous stirring. Then add another 5mL of anhydrous ether through the condenser as the reaction heats up. The solution made up for bromobenzene, add it into the separatory funnel so the mixture maintains a reflux, but not let it boil very hard. Once all the bromobenzene is added, rinse the separatory funnel with 2mL of anhydrous ether to wash any remaining bromide into the…...

Reagents: Hydrated sodium carbonate. Theory: Chemical decomposition, analysis or breakdown is the separation of a chemical compound into elements or simple compounds. A more specific type of decomposition is thermal decomposition or thermolysis, which is caused by heat. ABA+B, the reaction is endothermic, since heat is required to break the chemical bonds. Most decomposition reaction require energy either in the form of heat, light or electricity. Absorption of energy causes the breaking of the bonds present in the reacting substance which decomposes to give the product. When a hydrated salt is heated it decomposes into a pure form of the salt and water. MgSO4.xH2O MgSO4 + H2O Procedure: Refer to Handout Results: A. Mass of test tube/g = 21.77 B.

Grignard Lab

...A Grignard-Like Organic Reaction The Synthesis of 1-phenyl-3-buten-1-ol Introduction The Grignard reaction is an important synthetic process by which a new carbon to carbon bond is formed. Magnesium metal is first reacted with an organic halide forming the Grignard reagent. The Grignard reaction is the addition of an organomagnesium halide (Grignard reagent) to a ketone or aldehyde, to form a tertiary or secondary alcohol, respectively. For example, the reaction with formaldehyde leads to a primary alcohol. Grignard Reagents are also used in the following important reactions: The addition of an excess of a Grignard reagent to an ester or lactone gives a tertiary alcohol in which two alkyl groups are the same, and the addition of a Grignard reagent to a nitrile produces an unsymmetrical ketone via a metalloimine intermediate. A sample Grignard reaction mechanism can be seen in Figure 1 of a Grignard reagent being prepared with an alkyl bromide and later reacted with a formaldehyde to produce a primary alcohol. The purpose of this lab was to form 1-phenyl-3-buten-1-ol using a Grignard reaction. The Grignard reactant was produced from Zinc and Allyl Bromide which was then reacted to Benzaldehyde. The formation of the final product will be confirmed using a Thin Layer Chromatography, TLC, of the product and Benzaldehyde and an IR analysis of the product. Abstract In reactions involving Grignard reagents, it is important to exclude water and air, which rapidly......

Grignard Lab Report

...Preparation of Grignard Reagents and the Preparation of 2-methyl-3-heptanol from 2-methylpropanal and Grignard Reagents II. Introduction Organometallic compounds are substances with a carbon-metal bond (structure 1); these metals may be Li, Na, Mg, Cu, Hg, Pd, or any other transition metal (Gilbert, Martin 639). Organometallic compounds with M representing MgBr are organomagnesium compounds, or more commonly Grignard reagents. Grignard reagents are unique due to their polarization. The carbon atom in the Grignard reagent is made electron-rich by the electropositive metal giving the carbon atom a partial negative charge (δ-), and the metal a partial positive charge (δ+). This unique charge distribution allows carbon to act as a nucleophile in chemical reactions. However, when carbon is bonded to a more electronegative atom, such as a halogen (structure 2) or to oxygen (structure 3), it acts as an electrophile in chemical reactions (Gilbert, Martin 639). Figure 1. Structure of an organometallic reagent (structure 1), an alkyl halide (structure 2), and a carbonyl compound (structure 3). * Due to the nucleophilic properties, organometallic compounds are commonly used in reactions to form new carbon-carbon bonds. Equation 1 is a general example of a reaction between an alkyl halide and an organometallic compound. Equation 2 is an example of a reaction of a carbonyl and an organometallic compound. In both reactions the nucleophilic carbon atom of the......

Preparation of the Grignard Reagent and Benzoic Acid

...Pg(303-309/312-314) 3/11/14 Experiment #36 and 36b Preparation of the Grignard Reagent and Benzoic Acid Purpose- In this experiment we learned to prepare a Grignard reagent, phenyl magnesium bromide, which we then converted to a carboxylic acid. Procedure & Observations- First we started by setting up our apparatus for Grignard reactions. We started by making sure all glassware was completely dried as a Grignard reaction would not occur if water is present. We used a 100ml round bottom flask for our solution and placed it on a hot plate to control the heating process. We then weighed out 0.4920g of magnesium turnings and placed it into the round bottom flask. We also measured out 2.1ml of bromobenzene into a 50ml flask and got a weight of 3.0557g. We then added 10ml of ether to the 2.1ml of bromobenzene and pipetted half into the round bottom flask. The other half was then added to the separatory funnel along with an additional 7ml of ether. From here we began heating the mixture until boiling started to occur. Once the reaction started to begin we got an instant brownish color change. We also ended up using a drop from another group’s reaction to help move along the process. Once this happened we began slowly adding the remaining bromobenzene over a five minute period. Once it had all been added we added an additional 1ml of ether to rinse the funnel. We then heated under gentle reflux till all the......

Orgo Lab

...After completing the experiment, it was concluded that the Grignard reaction did not happen, and the diphenylmethanol was not formed. This experiment was not successful mainly because no Grignard reagent or tiny amount of Grignard reagent was produced or active prior to addition of benzaldehyde. By the end of the lab, only berry-redish solution was produced without any solid, this is a physical evidence of not producing any diphenylmethanol, because diphenylmethanol is white crystal. Also, after adding bromobenzene, it was barely seen bubbling in the flask; however, there was supposed to have a lively reflux in the flash as a consequence of the exothermic reaction; hence, no Grignard reagent was expected to be produced. These physical observations are aligned with IR spectroscopy analysis. The presence of a peak at 1706.06 cm-1 indicates the presence of carbonyl group, (in this case, benzaldehyde) Peaks at 3065.46, 2959.13, 2927.61 cm-1 were likely to be aromatic C-H stretches. To the right of the aromatic C-H stretches, it was appeared a shoulder-type peak at 2872.07 and 2732.33 cm-1, which proves the presence of aldehyde group. In the IR graph, a very weak peak at 3396.06 cm-1 can be found. It falls in the alcohol group range, but it is very weak. Considering the actual lab situation, it is more likely to be the water group. The NMR graph doesn’t support this specific lab result since it is from another sample. This specific NMR result indicates a successful experiment, a...

Experiment: Grignard Synthesis of Triphenymethanol

...Experiment: Grignard Synthesis of Triphenymethanol Title References: Rosenberg, Robert. (2010). Experimental Organic Chemistry: Howard University Edition. Virginia Beach, VA: Acedemx Publishing Services, Inc. McMurry, John. (2008). Organic Chemistry, 7th Edition. Mason, Ohio: Cengage Learning. Syntheses of triphenylmethanol using the Grignard reagent Phenylmagnesium bromide Abstract A Grignard reaction was demonstrated in order to produce triphenylmethanol from the use of the reagents bromobenzene and phenylmagnesium bromide. This was accomplished by first creating the Grignard Reagent (phenylmagnesium bromide). To do this refluxing of bromobenzene with magnesium and anhydrous ether was done. The Grignard reagent produced was placed in a round bottom flask. Next, a solution of methyl benzoate and ether was slowly mixed into the flask while refluxing was being performed. Upon completion of the reaction, the crystals were isolated using ligroin and vacuum filtration. Analysis of the IR spectra and melting point supported these results. The significance of these findings shows how thoroughly the experiment was carried out. Introduction The Grignard reagent can easily be formed by the reaction of an alkyl halide, in this case bromine, with magnesium metal, in anhydrous diethyl ether. The reaction takes place at the surface of the metal, and the ether plays the role as both the reactant and the solvent. As a result, the Grignard reagent is produced at the......
