Preparation of 2-Bromopentane.
Howell, B. A.; Kohrman, R. E.
Journal of Chemical Education, v61 n10 p932-34 Oct 1984
Suggests that the preparation of 2-bromopentane from 2-pentanol might represent an instructive addition to a published description of pheromone synthesis in that it is economical, extends the synthetic nature of the problem, and amplifies the mechanistic vagaries of the substitution reaction. Theory, procedures used, and safety considerations are included. (JN)
