Substituents on Aromatic Aldehydes and How They Affect E/Z Selectivity in the Wittig Reaction

Abstract:The Wittig Reaction is a nucleophilic addition in which an alkene is formed as a product. Both the E and Z isomers of the alkene result. Substituents on the ar ... eriment is to determine how a nitro group on benzaldehyde affects the stereoisomer formation of the alkene formed in a Wittig Reaction. The nitro group is substituted in the ortho, meta, and para posi ... Prize in Chemistry due to the Wittig Reaction's synthetic potential to form a variety of different alkenes. Today, this reaction is used to synthetically alkylate many different compounds that may ot ...
