  1. well all the positions have the same number of resonance structures the meta position just has the best one. correct me if im wrong
  2. my project is about nonlinear optical compounds, with specific research recently on organometallic compounds.
  3. in that synth the grignard adds to the double bond.. but then why is it still there in the product shouldnt it be gone by that approach
  4. to me it seems that the meta position is the most stabilizing for the anion. Or at least i think you could be able to protonate, and seperate it that way from the nuetral compound, if thats the goal. Or perhaps its forming some sort of complex
  5. what is the color of your final solution? use only a solution of hydroxide and add that to your phospine chloride, this will create the wittig reagent. then, add your methylene chloride and your aldehyde. this should work properly. and then extraction can be used to isolate the product
  6. If it changes color that means a reaction likely occured. With the added EW/staibilizing effect of NO2 group id say it got deprotonated. WIth a pKa of about 2.5, its fairly acidic.
  7. the reaction you drew works as far as i can tell. i dont see another viable synthetic approach based on your level of ochem.

    how come....

    the zinc atom is smaller than the Ca atom, yet Calcium has a higher atomic number?
  9. 80 % no way id say ud get maybe around 20%
  10. i thought they mixed it with something, they bubbled the gas through water i guess to seperate out the NO
  11. Speaking of ammonium nitrate i was watching this tv show and they mixed AN and something else in a flask and the reaction produced N2O- im just curious to what the reaction was if anyone knows
  12. perhaps its something about the type of oil
