Experiment 5: Preparation ofBenzoic Acid using a GrignardReagentKIN 6N5.Department of Chemistry, University of Ottawa, 10 Marie Curie, Ottawa, Ontario,June, 2008ABSTRACTBrCO2HIn this experiment you will synthesize benzoic acid using a Grignard reagent.Questions:1. During your Grignard formation, a small amount of benzene is formed. Provide a briefexplanation and mechanism to explain this observation.2. During your Grignard formation, a small amount of biphenyl is formed. Provide a briefexplanation and mechanism to explain this observation.3. What mass of water would be required to destroy the phenylmagnesium bromide thatyou prepared in this experiment? What volume does this represent?4. Why is the bromobenzene added to your flask in two portions rather than one?The reaction is exothermic therefore once it initates, the solvent may reflux.
