Due to donation from the lone-pair electrons on oxygen, the carbonhalogen bond of an α-halo ether is very susceptible toward nucleophilic attack. Organocuprates and Grignard reagents serve as good coupling partners for α-chloro ethers 163 and 165 to give branched chloroalkyl ether 164 and methoxyacetonitrile (166), respectively (Scheme 56).[‌98‌,‌99‌] Notably, the alkyl Grignard reagent selectively cleaves only the more reactive CCl bond and the secondary chlorine atom is maintained.
