Question: the grignard experiment explicitly states that quotif your glassware is...

Question details

The Grignard experiment explicitly states that if your glassware is wet your experiment will fail! To dry your glassware, the procedure directs you to wash your glassware with acetone and then dry it with a heat-gun. Draw (a) a curved arrow mechanism of and (b) thee side products that would result from reaction of (i) phenylmagnesium bromide and water and (ii) phenylmagnesium bromide and acetone. Phenylmagnesium bromide behaves as a nucleophile in both cases, in the first case toward an electrophilic H and, in the second case, toward an electrophilic carbonyl carbon.
