Ethyl Iodide when treated with dry silver oxide gives?
1) Ethanol
2) Ethylence
​3) Diethyl Ether
4) Ethane

Please explain with reaction!

ethanol 
  • -2
diethyl ether

2C2H5I + Ag2O --> C2H5-O-C2H5 + 2AgI
  • 8
2 C2H5I  +  Ag2O  ------>   C2H5-- O -- C2H5 + 2 AgI .  It  is  Di ethyl ether

Diethyl ether
  • 1
Hence, When diethyl iodide is heated with dry ether, diethylether is produced. Hope this helps.

Ya it is ethanol unless and until heat is mentioned.... But when heat is given the two ethanol undergo intermolecular dehydration and convert to diethyl ether
