What is non polar solvent not used in wurtz reaction
Asked by shantasharma611 | 1st May, 2021, 01:51: PM
In Wurtz reaction sodium metal is used which is very reactive.So selection of the solvent is done in such a way that the sodium metal does not react with the solvent.Dry ether is a solvent which does not react with sodium.Also the alkyl halide used in the reaction should be soluble in the solvent and the alkyl halide formed should be insoluble so that it can be easily removed and alkane formed should remain in solution.Since dry ether is a good non-polar, aprotic solvent, so it is used in Wurtz reaction.
