Question

The compound that will react most readily with N a O H to form methanol is:

  1. left parenthesis C H subscript 3 right parenthesis subscript 4 N to the power of plus I to the power of minus
  2. C H subscript 3 O C H subscript 3
  3. left parenthesis C H subscript 3 right parenthesis subscript 3 S to the power of plus I to the power of minus
  4. left parenthesis C H subscript 3 right parenthesis subscript 3 C bullet C l

The correct answer is: left parenthesis C H subscript 3 right parenthesis subscript 4 N to the power of plus I to the power of minus


    open parentheses C H subscript 3 close parentheses subscript 4 N to the power of plus I to the power of minus not stretchy ⟶ with N a O H on top open parentheses C H subscript 3 close parentheses subscript 4 N to the power of plus O H to the power of minus not stretchy rightwards arrow with straight capital delta on top open parentheses C H subscript 3 close parentheses subscript 3 N plus C H subscript 3 O H The reaction is more spontaneous for a better leaving group, I to the power of minus Also, methyl group with plus N will disperse plus v e spacecharge on N-atom to release I to the power of minus easily.
