Learning about Regiochemistry from a Hydrogen-Atom Abstraction Reaction in Water
Sears-Dundes, Christopher; Huon, Yoeup; Hotz, Richard P.; Pinhas, Allan R.
Journal of Chemical Education, v88 n10 p1437-1438 Oct 2011
An experiment has been developed in which the hydrogen-atom abstraction and the coupling of propionitrile, using Fenton's reagent, are investigated. Students learn about the regiochemistry of radical formation, the stereochemistry of product formation, and the interpretation of GC-MS data, in a safe reaction that can be easily completed in one laboratory session.
