The first reaction produced benzoin by using the thiamine hydrochloride catalyst, followed by an oxidation reaction to produce benzil, and a rearrangement to synthesize benzilic acid. By utilizing crystallization, pure solid products of each step were collected and analyzed through IR, NMR spectroscopy, and other physical properties. Introduction Multistep synthesis reactions involve many advantages and disadvantages. Disadvantages include time-consuming experiments, error within intermediate steps, or the presence of side reactions. Advantages imply the production of ideal, marketable end products, and the synthesis of compounds that otherwise could not be produced through a simple reaction.

Daily Visual Balance Check Certain acyloins also rearrange in this fashion. This diketone reaction is related to other rearrangements: the corresponding keto-aldehyde one alkyl group replaced by hydrogen rearranges in a Cannizzaro reaction , the corresponding 1,2-diol reacts in a pinacol rearrangement. Reaction mechanism The reaction is a representative of 1,2-rearrangements. These rearrangements usually have migrating carbocations but this reaction is unusual because it involves a migrating carbanion. The long established reaction mechanism updated with in silico data  is outlined in scheme 2. A hydroxide anion attacks one of the ketone groups in 1 in a nucleophilic addition to the hydroxyl anion 2. The next step requires a bond rotation to conformer 3 which places the migrating group R in position for attack on the second carbonyl group in a concerted step with reversion of the hydroxyl group back to the carbonyl group.

Benzilic Acid Rearrangement
Reaction mechanism[ edit ] The reaction is a representative of 1,2-rearrangements. The long-established reaction mechanism was first proposed in its entirety by Christopher Kelk Ingold , and has been updated with in silico data  as outlined below. The reaction is second order overall in terms of rate, being first order in diketone and first order in base. A hydroxide anion attacks one of the ketone groups in 1 in a nucleophilic addition to form the alkoxide 2. The next step requires a bond rotation to conformer 3 which places the migrating group R in position for attack on the second carbonyl group. This migration step is rate-determining.
