Reaction of 1 mole of each of Br2
in a basic solution yields 0.5 mole of PhCOCBr2CH3
and 0.5 mole of unreacted PhCOCH2CH3
. It suggests
- Bromination decreases further the rate of bromination
- Bromination increases further the rate of Bromination
- Bromination decreases the rate of tautomerisation
- Bromination increases the reactivity of carbonyl carbon due to a bigger size.
