Grade 12 Organic Chemistry Specific Name Reactions Class XII Sandmeyer Reaction The Cl , Br and CN nucleophiles can easily be introduced in the benzene ring of benzene diazonium salt in the presence of Cu(I) ion. This reaction is called Sandmeyer reaction. Gatterman Reaction Chlorine or bromine can be introduced in the benzene ring by treating the benzene diazonium salt solution with corresponding halogen acid in the presence of copper powder. This is referred as Gatterman reaction. Note: The yield in Sandmeyer reaction is found to be better than Gattermann reaction. Balz-Schiemann Reaction When arenediazonium chloride is treated with fluoroboric acid, arene diazonium fluoroborate is precipitated which on heating decomposes to yield aryl fluoride. Finkelstein Reaction Alkyl iodides are often prepared by the reaction of alkyl chlorides/ bromides with NaI in dry acetone. This reaction is known as Finkelstein reaction. Note: This reaction in forward direction can be favoured by precipitating NaX formed in dry acetone (according to Le Chatelier’s principle).

Grade 12 Swarts Reaction Heating an alkyl chloride/bromide in the presence of a metallic fluoride such as AgF, Hg 2 F 2 , CoF 2 or SbF 3 gives alkyl fluorides. The reaction is termed as Swarts reaction. Note: Finkelstein Reaction and Swarts Reaction are known as halogen exchange reaction. Wurtz Reaction Alkyl halides react with sodium in dry ether to give hydrocarbons containing double the number of carbon atoms present in the halide. This reaction is known as Wurtz reaction. Wurtz-Fittig Reaction A mixture of an alkyl halide and aryl halide gives an alkylarene when treated with sodium in dry ether and is called Wurtz-Fittig reaction. Fittig Reaction Aryl halides also give analogous compounds when treated with sodium in dry ether, in which two aryl groups are joined together. It is called Fittig reaction. Friedel-Crafts alkylation Reaction When benzene is treated with an alkyl halide in the presence of anhydrous aluminium chloride, alkylbenene is formed.

Grade 12 Note: Aromatic carboxylic acids do not undergo Friedel-Crafts reaction because the carboxyl group is deactivating and the catalyst aluminium chloride (Lewis acid) gets bonded to the carboxyl group.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
