Abstract:

The rate of addition of the BuMgBr Grignard reagent to benzonitrile was found to be greatly accelerated by the addition of LiClO4 or C4H94NClO4. An investigation of the reaction mechanism leads to the suggestion that the phenomena represents an example of the activation of organometallic compounds by the presence of inert salts. Studies in the area of carbanion stabilities are briefly summarized.
