Which of the following intermediate is formed during heterolytic cleavage of C−Cu bond in CH3CH2Cu?
The correct options are ACH3CH−2 DCu+ Since metals are always electropositive, the heterolytic cleavage takes place in the following way :
Theory : Bond Cleavage : Breaking of Covalent bond is known as Bond cleavage. Organic reaction is the process in which breaking and formation of covalent bonds takes place. Generalized organic reaction : Substrate+Reagent⟶Products Which can be further explained as : Organic molecule(substrate)reagent⟶intermediate⟶Product(s) Where intermediates and by products formed. Substrate : The reactant which is being attacked in a chemical reaction. Reagent : The reactant which attacks the substrate in a chemical reaction.
