Mechanism- acid catalyzed halogenation of carbonyl compounds
Explain with mechanism of reaction for the acid catalysed bromination of acetophenone and 3,3-dimethylbutan-2-one
When Bromine, Chlorine, or Iodine is added to an acidic solution of an aldehyde or a ketone, a halogen replaces one of the alpha-hydrogens of the carbonyl compound. This is illustrated by the mechanism for the acid catalyzed bromination of acetophenone.
