    • - The reaction forms a new C–C σ bond and a
    • new C–C π bond.
    • • Ph3P=O is formed as by-product.

    • - The reaction is fastest at pH 4–5.
    • - The intermediate carbinolamine is unstable, and loses H2O to form the C=N.

    • The reaction is reversible. Equilibrium favors
    • the product only with less stable carbonyl
    • compounds (e.g., H2CO and Cl3CCHO).
    • • The reaction is catalyzed with either H+ or –OH.

    • - The reaction is reversible.
    • - The reaction is catalyzed with acid.
    • - Removal of H2O drives the equilibrium
    • to favor the products.

    • - Step [1] is best with CH3X and RCH2X since the reaction follows an SN2 mechanism.
    • - A strong base is needed for proton removal in Step [2].

    • This reaction is the reverse of cyanohydrin
    • formation.
