Answer to Question #27023 in Organic Chemistry for Reaam

Question #27023
Suggest the most suitable synthetic routes for preparing 1-phenyl-1-butanol, using benzene and butane only, please mention the reagents required to do so as well. Thank you!
Expert's answer
First of all from butane you may produce the corresponding aldehyde
С4Н10 + О2 (450 °C, 1—2 МPа, AlPO4) → С4Н8О + Н2O;
then synthesize benzene halogenide
C6H6 + Cl2 = C6H5Cl + HCl
The following reactions will be the reaction of the Grignard
C6H5Cl + Mg = C6H5ClMg
C6H5ClMg + С4Н8О (H2O) = C6H5(OH)С4Н8
