convert chloroethene to butane
Asked by gopika sasikumar | 20th Sep, 2013, 11:50: AM
When vinyl halides react with Grignard reagents, they form higher alkenes. For example; ethyl magnesium bromide forms butene with vinyl chloride by substitution reaction.
CH2=CHCl + CH3CH2MgCBr ------> CH3CH2CH=CH2
On reduction, butene is converted to butane.
