Draw the isomeric pentanols (C5H12O) that can be synthesized via a sodium borohydride reduction of an aldehyde.
In your experiment you use ligroin in a trituration.
a. What could be used besides ligroin.
b. What is chemically occurring when you use the ligroin?
The experiment was a Grignard experiment. I am having a hard time figuring out ligroin is and the characteristics of it.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 8:28 pm ad1c9bdddf
