Silicon Tetrabromide - Reactivity
... Silicon tetrabromide can be readily reduced by hydrides or complex hydrides. 4 R2AlH + SiBr4 → SiH4 + 4 R2AlBr Reactions with alcohols and amines proceeed as follows SiBr4 + 4 ROH → Si(OR)4 + 4 HBr SiBr4 + 8 HNR2 → Si(NR2)4 + 4 HNR2HBr Grignard reactions with metal alkyl halides are particularly important reactions due to their production of organosilicon compounds which can be converted to silicones ...
Methyldichloroarsine - Structure, Synthesis, Reactivity
... Methyldichloroarsine is produced by the reaction of methylmagnesium chloride and arsenic trichloride AsCl3 + CH3MgCl → CH3AsCl2 + MgCl2 Typically such syntheses are conducted in ether or THF solutions and typically the product is isolated by distillation ... Use of larger amounts of the magnesium reagent affords greater amounts of dimethylchloroarsine ((CH3)2AsCl) and trimethylarsine ((CH3)3As) ...
Triethylaluminium - Synthesis and Reactions - Reactivity
... The linkage between the pair of aluminium centres is relatively weak and can be cleaved by bases (L) to give adducts with the formula AlEt3L Al2Et6 + 2 L → 2 LAlEt3. ...
Selective Chemistry Of Single-walled Nanotubes - Structure and Reactivity
... See also Optical properties of carbon nanotubes Reactivity of fullerene molecules with respect to addition chemistries is strongly dependent on the curvature of the carbon framework ... Their outer surface (exohedral) reactivity increases with increase in curvature ... Therefore generally the chemical reactivity of SWNT increases with decrease in diameter (or n, diameter increases with n) ...
