Nucleophilic Acyl Substitution with Carboxylic Acid Derivatives

Compounds with a C=O structure are carbonyl compounds, and there are many types of carbonyl compounds. Among these carbonyl compounds, carbonyl compounds that can be synthesized from carboxylic acids are called carboxylic acid derivatives. There are different types of carboxylic acid derivatives, such as acyl chloride, acid anhydride, esters, and amides. Each has different reactivity […]
