The only unifying thread is that they contain nitrogen in some way. What prompts this, you might ask? No good answer. So what the hell. Why not now? The Hofmann and Curtius rearrangements are two examples of a whole family of rearrangement reactions that share a common mechanistic step.

However, there is a second problem with this:. It does not even matter mechanistically what the pathway is. In general, protonation can and will occur by any solvent molecule that happens to be close by. Sign up to join this community. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top.

FAQ on Hoffmann Bromamide Reaction in JEE
The Hofmann rearrangement is the organic reaction of a primary amide to a primary amine with one fewer carbon atom. The reaction is named after its discoverer — August Wilhelm von Hofmann. This reaction is also sometimes called the Hofmann degradation , and should not be confused with the Hofmann elimination. The reaction of bromine with sodium hydroxide forms sodium hypobromite in situ , which transforms the primary amide into an intermediate isocyanate. The formation of an intermediate nitrene is not possible because it implies also the formation of a hydroxamic acid as a byproduct, which has never been observed. The intermediate isocyanate is hydrolyzed to a primary amine, giving off carbon dioxide.
