Nucleophilic addition of propane to p-tolualdehyde through the Grignard reaction

Written by Jacob Barlow Purpose: The purpose of this experiment is to synthesize a Grignard reagent (Grignard Reaction) from 2-bromopropane which is then used to synthesize 2-methyl-1-(4-methylphenyl)propan-1-ol from p-tolualdehyde and the created Gringard reagent.  The product was then purified using liquid-liquid extraction and rotary evaporation.  It was then identified using infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Chemical Equation: This is the chemical equation for the creation of the Grignard reagent. This is the chemical equation of the reaction of the […]
