questing and concept clear sir
Friends don't mistake me. Sir is making good videos.For making a video of 10 min will take more than 20-25min.Remember one thing if at all he didn't decided to teach in unacademy, what you will do? He is self interested and dedicated person. So he is already putting his full efforts. So we should not give him extra burden. if you felt difficult for writing then how much difficult he would have have for preparing then how much difficult he would have for preparing a video. in one of his video he clearly said that for better Returns we should do some work in writing. All the best.
Bro, you're 100% correct.

Bhaiya,in the maleic acid question at the 2nd last step, isn't there a tendency to form cyclobuta1-2diene by the combination of 2 such radicals rather than acetylene?
Rahul SriRam

That is highly unstable due to ring strain, i.e, the angle should be 120° for the double bonds in cyclobuta 1-2 diene, but it'll be 90°. Moreover, it is an anti-aromatic ring which is highly unstable. Delete

So it should expand its bond and dimerise... Right?
Rahul SriRam

The dimerised cyclobuta 1-2 diene will form a similar compound as bhaiyya has discussed in his Wurtz rxn tutorial, but with 2 cyclo-butene rings on either sides of a cyclo-butane ring in the middle(idk the name of that bi-cyclo compound). It again is unstable as there still are double bonds at the ends, due to ring strain.

So it can be thought as to be polymerization. Right?
Rahul SriRam

Well, I give up, if its about polymerisation. Idk...bhaiyya pls reply
Utkarsh Pathak

Actually, I analyse every possibility, so... Maybe all this discussion is in vain. Bhaiya please reply.

We always look for the major product here acetylene is more stable may be cyclobuta-1,3-diene is possible if we take two moles of maleic acid but it is taken as minor products
I wanna confirm that when I use " fumaric in place of maleic acid " - I got " Acetylene" . Is is right or
Sachin Rana

Correct.

Bro in wurtz rxn you gave example with 1,2-dichlorocyclobutane. If it is done with 1,3-dichlorocyclobutane then what will be the product? Any thing like bicyclic compound?
Sachin Rana
3 years ago
Yes, that bicyclic thing will be formed as discussed in my last video ' Important Questions'.
