Things to do
- Mechanism of SOCl2, PCl3, PCl5.
- Mechanism of DMF
- Balance equation with cyanuric chloride
- Check - DIBAH reduces to 1° alcohol? Or aldehyde? Reusch says former, Rosenmund reaction says latter.
- Draw diagram for FC acylation. Reaction in Friedel-Crafts reaction is not very nice.
- Add a systematic nomenclature. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 03:10, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
Radical R Group?
Does the R group in RCOCl really have to be an "organic radical"? Only one reaction shown on the page (the Appel Reaction) had a radical at all. From what I understand, the beauty of Acid Chlorides is that you can put virtually any R group onto it, allowing addition to any nucleophilic functional group.
Radical is an old term which means fragment, which can pretty much be anything. It is not a free radical. I suppose this terminology may give rise to confusion, but I can't think of a good one-for-one replacement. Feel free to edit. --Rifleman 82 (talk) 04:37, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
Sweet! I never knew that... But yea, I'll see if I can reword it to make it a little clearer, especially since I couldn't find anything on the antiquated definition in the linked article. Thanks again for the insight! --Uhjoebilly (talk) 19:12, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
