There is disubstitution in book and mono substitution on Wikipedia. I am unable to figure out how after disubstitution hydrolysis takes place? I understand hydrolysis when monosubstituted. The proposed mechanism is radical, though it is yet to be proven experimentally. However, the mixture of products is in agreement with this proposal. Active Oldest Votes.

Typical solvents for the reaction include carbon disulfide , chloroform , and carbon tetrachloride , with carbon tetrachloride being the most common. The reaction is normally carried out for a few days to several weeks and the yields are high. Obtaining specific aldehyde products from reagents other than toluene tends to be difficult due to rearrangements. For example, n -propylbenzene is oxidized to propiophenone , benzyl methyl ketone , and several chlorinated products, with benzyl methyl ketone being the major product. Other oxidation reagents like potassium permanganate or potassium dichromate oxidize to the more stable carboxylic acids.
