In the reduction to benzene, should the reactant be H3PO2 instead of H2PO3? That is how I have seen it elsewhere.

Shoot. Fixed. Thanks!

Hi, in the Examples the example 4: Ph-N+N + H3PO2 —> “benzene”. Why in the reaction Ph-N+N + HPO —> is produced “phenol”? Its is ok the other reaction? Thx, P.

You mean H3O+ ?


Petr Menzel June 2, 2014 at 3:24 pm

No, I mean acid HPO.

Hi, is the carbon C, where is bonded -N+N, the same carbon where is bonded the X from the Description? Thx, P.

Yes, it should be!
