Problem 22.11

Addition of tert-butylbenzene to the strongly acidic solvent HF/SbF5 followed by aque-ous workup gives benzene. Propose a mechanism for this dealkylation reaction. What isthe other product of the reaction?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Week 1 Day One Lecture One 8/30/2016 Chemistry is considered to be the central science behind the question. Chemistry involves the study of matter and its transformations. Matter  Matter is “stuff” matter is anything having mass or that takes up space. Most matter is easily identifiable in categories such as solid, liquid, or some not as easily identified gases such as air, CO, CO2, and H2S. During any type of physical or chemical transformation the total mass of the matter involved cannot change.  Matter can be divided in to mixtures and pure substances. o Pure substances then can be divided in to elements and compounds.  Elements consist of one type of atom and are given an elemental symbol such as gold.  Compounds however, are classified as two or more types of atoms that are bonded and have a composition given by a formula like water – H2O.  Molecules are the simplest form of a compound, unlike an element where the simplest from are atoms (multiple bonded molecules). o Mixtures can be divided in to two categories, either Homogeneous or Heterogeneous.  Homogeneous mixtures have the same composition throughout the sample.
