arrange the following compnds acc to their reactivity with alcoholic agno3
1 t butylchlride
Carbon tetrachloride doesnot react with alc. AgNO3 solution.
Silver ion from the alcoholic silver nitrate solution reacts with the halide ion formed by the dissociation of alkyl halide into carbocation and a halide ion to produce silver halide.
Since, tertiary carbocation is most stable, tertiary halide will react the fastest followed by secondary halide and then primary halide. Thus, the order of reactivity towards alcoholic AgNO3 is:
tert-butylchloride > sec-butylchloride > carbon tetrachloride.
