Interaction of Bromine Br2 and C=O on Propanone


The interaction of Br2 with the carbonyl group of propanone.

(a) The structure of (CH3)2COBr2 shown by X-ray diffraction. Bond distances can be measured by double clicking the two atoms of interest. Bond angles are measured by double clicking an atom, then single clicking the atom at the vertex, then double clicking the final atom.

(b) The orbital overlap responsible for the complex formation. Click the image above to display.

(c) A partial Molecular Orbital energy level diagram for the s and s* orbitals of Br2 with the appropriate combination.
