MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

AIPMT 2008

The relative reactivities of acyl compounds towards nucleophilic substitution are in the order of
A
Acid anhydride > Amide > Ester > Acyl chloride
B
Acyl chloride > Ester > Acid anhydride > Amide
C
Acyl chloride > Acid anhydride > Ester > Amide
D
Ester > Acyl chloride > Amide > Acid anhydride.

Explanation

The more the basic character of the leaving group, the lesser is the reactivity the basic character follows the order

NH2 > OR > RCOO > Cl

Hence, the relative reactivities of acyl compounds towards nucleophilic substitution follow the order

Acyl halides > Acid anhydride > Ester > Amide.

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

AIPMT 2008

A strong base can abstract an $$\alpha $$-hydrogen from
A
ketone
B
alkane
C
alkene
D
amine

Explanation

As the carbonyl carbon is electron deficient so most susceptible to attack by ncleophilic reagent or base.

Thus $$\alpha $$-hydrogen is the easily obstructed from ketones by a base.
