Effect of changing the halide in 2 examples of Fischer and Stoffers’s reaction between Grignard reagents and CO under pressure is studied. The substitution of BuMgBr and iso-AmMgCl for BuMgCl and iso-AmMgBr yields the same products, 4-nonene and 2 8-dimethyl-4-nonene, respectively, but the yields are 25.4% and 51% instead of 51% and 53.6%, respectively.
