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.

    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.
