Analysis on Reactions of Ethers
Subject: Chemistry | Topics:

This article focus to discuss on Reactions of Ethers. Ethers are generally relatively inert toward reaction, they usually show good solvent properties for a lot of nonpolar organic compounds. This strong dissolving power coupled with low reactivity makes ethers good solvents through which to run reactions. An acid‐catalyzed cleavage occurring when hydriodic acid (HI) blends with ethers is the most significant reaction that ethers knowledge. This reaction proceeds by way of a nucleophilic substitution mechanism.
