Extern link: I have linked to the english version of the Swern Reaction. It is the same publisher and the content is similar.
I think the statement "one of the most foul odors known in organic chemistry." is overdone. See the article on dimethyl sulfide for a more realistic description. The detection limit of ppb also seems low.ChemistHans (talk) 19:00, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
The reaction table proposed for this article does not contain any new information. The link to the rsc page does not provide any information, info in the box is duplicated from the article itself. Focus really should be on generating new content. Discussion V8rik (talk) 18:23, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
Reaction diagram (perhaps?) does not agree with text
The lead says "primary or secondary alcohols", but the affected alcohol (compound 5 in the diagram) appears to me (a non-chemist) to be a tertiary alcohol. Could someone with a "real" chemical background check this?
- Compound 5 is indeed a secondary alcohol: the carbon that has the OH attached to it has two other substituents (the generic "R" groups) and one hydrogen. DMacks (talk) 05:05, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
