Question description

Note: Prior to lab, determine the following:

-amount of styrene, in microliters____

-amount of dichloromethane added to styrene, in mL

-amount of triethylamine


To an appropriately sized reaction vessel, add 0.002 mol styrene followed by enough dichloromethane to make a 2.0 M solution.

-add a stir flea, cool the reaction mixture in an ice-water bath, and begin stirring the mixture.  

-to this mixture syringe in 8.5 mol% triethylamine.  The triethylamine will be available as a 0.43M solution in dichloromethane.

-next add 5 ml 10% NaOCl solution to the cool, stirring mixture.

-Prepare a solution of 196 mg of Mystery Reagent X solution.  Rinse the pipette with several extra drops of dichloromethane to ensure complete transfer of this reagent.-TLC to monitor the reactoin

Work up:

when reaction appears to be complete, transfer the organic layer to a clean vessel. extract the remaining aqueous layer with an equal volume of dichloromethane and dry the combine layers with anhydrous sodium sulfate. 

filter out the dry agent ....

we need to then use TLC, purify with column chromatography.

analyze product with UV-vis, FT-IR, FT-NMR 1 H and 13 C, GC-MS, HPLC

We need to figure out the mystery reagent used and determine the product with the reactant styrene?
