Free radical mechanism occurs so many side products form.
Yes bro can you explain the radical mechanism? Sir went through this very fast didn’t understand. Or I’ll send a picture pls explain.
Thanks bhaiya... got it. Please try this question. I know the answer. Yes/No with explanation.
Is the answer a no?
Other products can form relatively easily
Although these type of question won't come as you can't completely rule out the dimerisation product. It might be minor.
More or less yes. But better reason would be to state that when Br is removed carbanion on C will face 3 -I effects. What other products bro? Intermediate itself is unstable...
Nope. If br is removed then FR will form which will be very stable due to +H of methyl groups
Intermediate is very stable
Bro carbocations only are stabilised by HC. Correct if wrong.
No. FR are also electron deficient species and carbon is sp2 hybd, hyperconjugation takes place in fr also.
Got it bhai? @seshu_ram
I’ll be back. Still most probable intermediate of wurtz reaction is the carbanion although free radical has been experimentally proved.
Yes bro... I understand what your saying. But idk coz both our explanations can be correct however in case the above statement is true then my answer will be correct.
Ok. Will see this.
Bro reason I am arguing so much is because my sir is almost never wrong and if he is he’ll correct next class. The first question was not from my notes.
That paragraph from Peter Sykes explains it, do you want me to send?
Ok bro. Thanks for confirming.
But still, i can surely say for jee at least just forget that carbanion is involved. Simple free radical process.
Yes please @seshu_ram
