Benzylbromide, NaHCO3 (42.0 g, 0.5 mole) and distilled water (100 mL) were taken in quickfit flask equipped with water condenser.
Sample preparation procedures included solid phase extraction, azeotropic distillation, and pentafluoro (methyl) benzylbromide (PFBBR) derivitization.
We therefore wanted investigate the theoretical studies of the conversion of ortho, meta, and para substituted benzylbromides to the corresponding alcohols and their deprotonation.
