|Title:||Solvation models in the reaction between benzyl bromide and 2-mercapto benzimidazole—A kinetic study|
|Abstract:||The reaction between benzyl bromide and 2-mercapto benzimidazole has been studied in different protic and aprotic solvents. The reaction is first order each with respect to [benzyl bromide] and [2-mercapto benzimidazole]. Correlation analysis of rate data shows that, the solvent parameters polarity (Y), hydrogen bond donor ability (a), and π* simultaneously influence the rate of the reaction. From the regression analysis, the information about the mode of solvation of the reactants and the transition state is obtained. The product obtained, 2-benzyl mercapto benzimidazole is proposed to form due to the proton elimination from the N-H group.|
