Lucas Reagant

The reaction seen above is an example of a substitution nucleophilic 1 reaction. The mild reaction conditions and high yields makes the Lucas reaction a convient way to be utilized in the industrial-scale preparation of alkyl chlorides from aliphatic alcohols. However, the wide use of the Lucas reagent in industrial settings is limited due to the cost of ZnCl2. This reaction proceeds rapidly and is needed for the fast demand and industrial use of menthyl chloride. A description of the reaction is shown here.


  • This is probably a good example but your pics are unreadable. You must use CiteULike

  • i am for some reason not able to locate a resource from CiteULink for this particular reaction or the Lucas Reagant for that matter.

  • For ACS you have to enter the information manually in CiteULike.

  • 4/10.
    1) There is no page number in the CiteULike ref and no link to the article online.
    2) The pics are still unreadable.
    3) This was a good example - too bad I couldn't view the original article.
