Morgan Bailey Mb33295 Grignard Discussion In this laboratory period, we discovered how benzoic acid can be synthesized with the use of a Grignard Reagent. A Grignard reagent can be described as a carbon chain with magnesium and a halogen at the end of it. The Grignard reacts with the bromobenzene to form the Grignard reagent in this experiment. Another name for Grignard Reagents is organometallic reagents. A property of them is the fact that the carbon atom in it can serve as a molecule that favors protons in the chemical reactions. They are used in reactions that can produce new C-C bonds. They react mainly with carbonyl compounds, breaking the double bond on the oxygen and creating a negative formal charge on it and then you could say “the chemist opens the flask” and adds mild acid to the product and makes it an alcohol. In order to form a Grignard, we add magnesium to an alkyl halide in the presence of ether.
