What is the role of dry ether with Na in reactions.
Asked by rakeshraghav33 | 21st Jan, 2019, 02:49: PM
Sodium metal is highly reactive. Wurtz reaction is carried out with sodium metal.
So solvent is used which will not react with sodium metal.
If the solvent is not used, sodium will react with water to form oxides and hydroxides, which will disturb the reaction.
Dry ether is an aprotic solvent and it also acts as a catalyst.
