Discuss on Synthesis of Ethers

Principle objective of this article is to discuss on Synthesis of Ethers. The sulfuric acid process and the Williamson method are both used to form ethers. Here discuss on Sulfuric acid process, this method is used to make sterically hindered symmetrical ethers. Also focus on Williamson method, Williamson ether synthesis proceeds via an S N2 mechanism, in which an alkoxide ion displaces a halogen ion.
