Problem 17P

Problem 17P

Show the products of the reactions of these carboxylic acids with PBr3/Br2 before and after hydrolysis.

(a) pentanoic acid (b) phenylacetic acid (c) succinic acid (d) oxalic acid

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution:

Here we have to show the reactions of the following carboxylic acids with PBr3/Br2 before and after hydrolysis.

(a) pentanoic acid (b) phenylacetic acid (c) succinic acid (d) oxalic acid

Step 1

(a)Reaction of pentanoic acid with PBr3/Br2

Pentanoic acid in presence of phosphorous tribromide (PBR3) and bromine (before hydrolysis) forms 1,2-dibromopentanone, which on hydrolysis form 2-bromopentanoic acid and HBr.

 

(Pentanoic acid)                                            (1,2-dibromopentanone)               (2-bromopentanoic acid )
