Q

Give the structures of A, B and C in the following reactions:(v) CH_3 COOH

13.9     Give the structures of A, B and C in the following reactions:

(v) $\inline CH_{3}COOH\xrightarrow[\Delta ]{NH_{3}}A\xrightarrow[]{NaOBr}B\xrightarrow[]{NaNO_{2}/HCl}C$

Views

A- ethanamide ($CH_{3}CONH_{2}$)

B- methenamine ($CH_{3}NH_{2}$)

C- methanol ($CH_{3}OH$)

Acetic acid reacts with ammonia, gives ethanamide and the second reaction is Hoffmann bromamide degradation reaction so it removes -CO group and form methenamine and after that the last product is methanol.
