Why arylcyanides can't be formed by the reaction on aryl halides and sodium cyanide?
Asked by piyush das | 31st Aug, 2011, 10:19: AM
aryl halides undergo nucleophilic substitution reaction and substitutes its halide ion with a nucleophile.
aryl halides has a double bond character between halogen and aryl ring.the bond is shorter and stable so it is not displaced easily hence, halide is not substituted easily by the use of usual reagent like sodium cyanide.we need strong reagent like copper cyanide to form aryl cyanide.
