Question

Williamson synthesis is used to prepare:
  1. Diethyl ether
  2. Acetone
  3. P.V.C.
  4. Bakelite

A
Acetone
B
Bakelite
C
Diethyl ether
D
P.V.C.
Solution
Verified by Toppr

The correct option is B Diethyl ether
By heating alkyl halide with sod. or pot. alkoxides (Williamson synthesis) diethyl ether is formed. This is the most important industrial and laboratory method and may be used for preparing simple as well as mixed ethers.

For example :
