Flashcards in Haloalkane Deck (10):
1

Haloalkane to Alcohol

NaOH warm under reflux

2

Haloalkane to Nitrile

KCN in aq ethanol, boil under reflux

3

Haloalkane to Amine

Ammonia in ethanol in a sealed tube, heat

4

Haloalkane to Alkene

KOH in ethanol, heat

5

When is there an elimination reaction rather than a nucleophilic substitution?

1. NaOH dissolved in ethanol mixed with haloalkane
2. No water present
3. Alkene gas collected

6

Primary haloalkanes tend to react by

Substutituion

7

Tertiary haloalkanes tend to react by

Elimination

8

Secondary haloalkanes react by

Both substitution and elimination

9

CFC's

1. Contain both chlorine and fluorine atoms but no hydrogen
2. Unreactive under normal conditions

10

In elimination reactions of haloalkanes, the OH group is acting as a

Base
