Wurtz Fittig reaction

The Wurtz Fittig reaction is the name given to the process for the preparation of alkylated aromatic compounds by sodiumÔÇÉmediated coupling of an alkyl and an aryl halide. It was first noted in 1860.

There are currently two competing explanations for how the reaction works - and there appears to be experimental evidence for both.
