. The high reactivity of NH 2 OH is ascribed to the coordination of the N atom. A similar coordination behavior of NH 3 OH + is improbable because the lone pair is coordinated to the proton. Hence, the formation of a coordinated complex is essential for the progress of the reaction.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
