Wurtz-Fittig reaction

Wurtz - Fittig reaction. The interaction of an aryl halide, alkyl hahde and sodium gives a reasonable yield of an alkyl aryl hydrocarbon, for example  [c.508]

Two mechanisms have been proposed for the Wurtz reaction (compare Section III,7) and for the Wurtz-Fittig reaction. According to one, sodium reacts with the alkyl halide to produce a sodium halide and a free radical, which subsequently undergoes coupling, disproportionation, etc.  [c.508]

Poly-p-phenylene has been prepared in the laboratory by a variety of methods, including the condensation of p-dichlorobenzene using the Wurtz-Fittig reaction. Although the polymer has a good heat resistance, with decomposition  [c.584]

The coupling of alkyl halides 1 upon treatment with a metal, e.g. elemental sodium, to yield symmetrical alkanes 2, is called the Wurtz reaction. Aryl alkanes can be prepared by the Wurtz-Fittig reaction, i.e. the coupling of aryl halides with alkyl halides.  [c.304]

The synthetic applicability is rather limited, due to the various side-reactions observed, such as eliminations and rearrangement reactions. The attempted coupling of two different alkyl halides in order to obtain an unsymmetrical hydrocarbon, usually gives the desired product in only low yield. However the coupling reaction of an aryl halide with an alkyl halide upon treatment with a metal (the Wurtz-Fittig reaction) often proceeds with high yield. The coupling of two aryl halides usually does not occur under those conditions (see however below ) since the aryl halides are less reactive.  [c.305]
