The work reported in this thesis is part of an integrated research program in progress at the University of Nebraska dealing with the mechanisms of addition, elimination, and substitution in α, β – unsaturated ketones and their halogen derivatives.
The essential scope of this research is the investigation of the mechanism(s) of substitution by amines on α – (bromomethyl)-chalcone.A knowledge of the mechanism(s) involved would be useful in elucidating some of the factors determining the structure of reaction products observed in other similar systems.
