Methyl ketone conversion to carboxylic acids through the Haloform Reaction (HR) is a fascinating topic within the realm of organic synthesis. This field involves the manipulation of functional groups to create desired compound structures, and carbonyl-containing compounds, such as aldehydes and carboxylic acids, play a crucial role. These compounds can undergo various reactions, including oxidation and reduction. However, transforming internal carbonyls, specifically ketones, presents unique challenges due to the need to break carbon-carbon bonds. In this article, we will explore in detail the HR, a useful technique for converting methyl ketones into carboxylic acids.
