1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What would be the expected product from the reaction of benzyl fluoride with Et2AlCN if the reaction is (a) 1st order w.r.t. aluminum (b) 2nd order w.r.t. aluminum? 2. The attempt at a solution Would you form benzyl cyanide and diethyl aluminum fluoride? That's the only thing I can think of....I learned that this reagent is useful for adding CN across a a,b-unsaturated compound, but benzyl fluoride is not unsaturated (except for the phenyl ring, but I highly doubt reaction would occur there). Does this seem logical? Could someone explain to me the effects that reaction order would have on the products formed?
