4. Why is it unwise to begin addition of the solution of carbonyl compound to the Grignard reagent before the latter has cooled to room temperature?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Organic reactions are the chemical reactions in which certain organic compounds involve in chemical reaction to form new organic compounds. The organic compounds are the chemical compounds which are mainly composed of C and H atoms with certain other elements like N, O etc.

Step 2

The Grignard reagent is the organometallic compound as in this compound the C atom forms a chemical bond with metal atom present in the molecule. The general formula of Grignard reagent is R-MgX here the Mg stands for magnesium metal and X stands for certain halogen atom.

Step 3

The reaction of carbonyl compounds with the Grignard...
