Towards this goal, insertion reactions with substituted alkenes featuring a variety of functional groups will be explored.
A Diels-Alder type aromatisation reaction involving cyclisation of alkenes and subsequent formation of monoaromatic and polycyclic aromatic compounds is reported by Cypres [20], Fairburn et al.
If the pyrolysis is carried out in a reactor at atmospheric pressure, the relation of alkenes to alkanes is about 1 : 1 [13].
Organic chemicals such as alcohols, aldehydes, alkanes, alkenes, amines, asbestos, benzene, BPA, dyes, esters, ethers, haloalkanes, methylbenzene, phenols, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), phthalates, polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and short chain chlorinated paraffins (SCCPs)
Components were also found in these categories: alkenes, aldehydes and ketones, esters, and ethers (small amounts).
The products were characterized by 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, FT-IR, and Mass Spectrometry (MS) that strongly approved the (Z)-double bond configuration of produced alkenes.
The topics are nucleophilic aliphatic substitutions: SN1 and SN2, electrophilic addition to alkenes, electrophilic aromatic substitutions, and rearrangement and fragmentation reactions.
