In the Hofmann bromamide degradation reaction, the number of moles of NaOH and Br2 used per mole of amine produced are :

  • Option 1)

    One mole of NaOH and one mole of Br2 .

  • Option 2)

    Four moles of NaOH and two moles of Br2 .

  • Option 3)

    Two moles of NaOH and two moles of Br2 .

  • Option 4)

    Four moles of NaOH and one mole of Br2 .

 
As we learnt in Hofmann Bromamide Degradation - Amines ( only primary ) can also be prepared by Hofmann degradation. In this method the amine will have one carbon atom less than the amide.  - wherein     Option 1) One mole of NaOH and one mole of Br2 . This option is incorrect. Option 2) Four moles of NaOH and two moles of Br2 . This option is correct. Option 3) Two moles of NaOH and two...
