What happens when benzene diazonium chloride solution is add to hot dilute sulphuric acid – phenol is formed as a product.
What is benzene diazonium chloride?
It is an organic compound. the chemical formula of this compund is [C6H5N2]Cl.
Diazo + nium + salt = diazonium salt
Diazo – two nitrogen (N2)
nium – + charge
salt – + salt
therefore, we can write diazonium salt.
you can write in the form of alkyl Or aryl
R – N2+ + ions (X-)
= R – N2 + X-
Where, ions may be (Cl negative), Br negative or HSO4 negative etc.
R – N2 + (positive) triple bond Cl- (negative).
this is also called alkyl diazonium chloride.
this compound is very important compound, it is mostly used for preparation of organic compound.
It is produced verity of organic compound such as, benzene, nitrobenzene, phenol etc.
What happens when benzene diazonium chloride solution is add to hot dilute sulphuric acid?
First off all, take aromatic/aryl and then take benzene diazonium chloride, (diazonium salt). then it react with water in the presence of dil h2so4, sulphuric acid. the reaction is proceed in a such a manner thet would get phenol as a product as shown in reaction.
Ar – N+x- + h2o [ dil h2so4 ] _ Ar – OH + Hx + N2^
It mean, when diazonium salt is react with dil sulphuric acid then it will convert into phenol as a product. and some other bio products would get that is Hx and N2.
Hx – it will remove.
N2 – it will evoprated
Now, we will discuss how it is possible, and how diazonium salt is converted into phenol.
What happens when diazonium salt solution is add to hot dilute sulphuric acid? and what product is formed?
When (diazonium salt) solution is add to hot sulphuric acid then phenol is formed as a product, it is shown in reaction.
yes, it is absolutely true, when diazonium salt react with dil sulphuric acid, then phenol is formed and other bio product is removed such as hcl and N2.
