CARBENES Carbenes are highly reactive molecule containing a divalent carbon atom. Neutral, divalent, highly reactive in nature. They are highly unstable that’s why highly reactive in nature. Simplest carbene is General preparation: Carbenes are related to carbanions through α – elimination reaction Hybridization of the divalent carbon may be sp² as well as sp. sp² hybrid carbine is Read more about CARBENES & NITRENES[…]
