It is the reaction between alkyl halides and sodium in the dry ether to give alkanes with higher number of carbon. 2R-X + 2 Na —> R-R +2NaX
Here are the standard electrode potentials of elements .
There is a trick in learning this reaction I will make it very easy for you to learn and rewrite. Firstly see the reaction:- Na2CO3 + 2HCl → 2NaCl + CO2 + H2O Tricks to learn:– Firstly see the formula of carbonate its CO3 , this will be converted into CO2 , One oxygen of CO3 will attach to two […]
What causes Ionic bonds to form? Use NaCl (table salt) as an example to explain the formation of ionic bonds.
it is a very common question and common example too. i would love to answer. Most people say it is the bond formed due to the transfer of electrons, but this explanstion is not complete. Ionic bond is the bond formed due to strong electrostatic forces of attraction between two oppositely charged ions. here is the complete reaction that takes […]
