Answer This

The reaction of chlorinated hydrocarbons with metallic fluorides to form chlorofluorohydrocarbons, such as CCl2F2, which is quite inert and nontoxic. is calld swarts reaction....



 

CH3-Br + AgF      CH3-F + AgBr

 

The reaction of chlorinated hydrocarbons with metallic fluorides to form chlorofluorohydrocarbons, such as CCl2F2, which is quite inert and nontoxic. is calld swarts reaction....

 

this is the process of synthesis of alkylfluorides.this reaction is best accomplished by heating a alkyl chloride or bromide with metallic fluoride like AgF,etc

 

REACTION OF CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS

 

The reaction of chlorinated hydrocarbons with metallic fluorides to form chlorofluorohydrocarbons, such as CCl2F2, which is quite inert and nontoxic. is calld swarts reaction....

 

the synthesis of alkyl fluorides is best accomplished by heating an alkyl chloride/bromide in the presence of a metallic fluoride such as AgF ,Hg2F2 etc...this reaction is known as swarts reaction

 

swarts reaction is used to produce fluoro derivatives of alkanes. the reaction is

                            RCl + AgF gives RF + AgCl.

this reaction mainly occurs due to affinity of Ag toward Cl.

 
The one halogen replaced in another halogen group is called as swart reaction. CH3-BR+AgF-----------) CH3-F+AgBr bromo Methane floro Methane
 
the reaction by which alkyl fluorides are prepared indirectly by heating suitable chloro or bromoalkanes or say (haloalkane) with inorganic fluorides such as AsF3 , AgF , etc.
