List the alkyl bromide first followed by a comma and then the aldehyde. All chemicals are hyperlinked to their safety data sheets SDSs :. According to the SDS, 1-bromopentane should be soaked up with an inert absorbent material and kept in a closed container for disposal. The following equipment should be used to perform the reactions herein:. In addition to the normal safety procedures applicable to any organic chemistry laboratory, the following are safety considerations peculiar to the reactions performed herein:.

All waste generated by laboratory personnel should be initially stored into a temporary waste container e. The contents in the temporary waste container should then be transferred into an appropriately labeled waste container making sure to note compounds present and amounts thereof on the waste container. Limiting the trips to the waste container will reduce the chance of spillage. An apparatus suitable for preparation of the Grignard reagent is illustrated below Figure 8.

Safety Considerations. Diethyl ether is highly flammable and explosive under the right conditions.
Do not use in the presence of open flames or sparks. Formation of carbon-carbon bonds using radicals: The fundamentals of radical reactions provide an introduction to the area. Discussion will then focus on tin-mediated intermolecular additions, intramolecular cyclisations and tandem and cascade processes. Formation of carbon-carbon bonds using organometallic reagents: focusing on the use and application of palladium catalysis in organic synthesis. Pericyclic reactions: Diels-Alder-, 1,3-dipolar- and related cycloadditions; concerted electrocyclic ring opening and closure reactions stereochemistry ; sigmatropic rearrangements.
The emphasis will be on how appreciation of the frontier molecular orbitals involved in the reactions allows prediction of which will occur, as well as their rates, regiochemistry and stereochemistry. Lectures and workshops. Some on-line resources provided on Blackboard including some recorded lectures and worked examples.
