    What reactions do you know that involve solid magnesium? Do any of these also involve halogens?

    no halogens

    but this reminds me of grignard reactions

    No halogens in Grignard reaction?

    What is a Grignard reagent?

    not sure, I just guessed.

    Reaction of magnesium with the halogens
    This initially has chloride in it so first it would attach Mgcl to it then Me3sn
    is that correct?T

    I figured out the answer.
