A Grignard reaction is an organometallic chemical reaction that uses a Grinard reagent  to form carbon-carbon bonds and changing the reaction center of a compound. The Grignard  reagent is a organomagnesium reagent R-MgX, where X=Cl, Br and R is a alkyl, aryl, allyl,  benzyl, or any sp 2  or sp hybridized carbon. This reagent is formed by reacting the target metal  with an alkyl halide with a polar solvent, such as ether.
