a. Name the suitable alcohol and reagent, from which 2-Chloro-2-methyl propane can be prepared.
b. Out of the Chloromethane and Fluoromethane , which one is has higher dipole moment and why?
- Tert butyl alcohol or 2-methyl propan-2-ol using Lucas reagent , mixture of concHCl and ZnCl 2 the reaction will follow the S N 1 pathway.
- Chloromethane is having higher dipole moment . Due to smaller size of fluorine the dipole moment of flouromethane is comparatively lesser.
