Grignard reaction

(grē-nyar′) [François AugusteVictor Grignard, French chemist and Nobel laureate, 1871–1935]
A classical organic-chemical process that forms carbon-carbon bonds. It is used to build carbon chains in compounds including drugs, food additives, toxins, and pesticides.

A yellow reaction mixture was formed called Grignard reagent.
This echoes the comments of Alain Grignard from Brussels Federal Police, who noted that many of the new generation of jihadis that Belgian and European security agencies were dealing with were radicals prior to their adoption of jihadism.
In all seriousness, newer and (relatively) safer methylating reagents such as organo-zinc, organo-lithium and organo-aluminum compounds, as well as their much tamer halides such as Grignard reagents (alkyl-magnesium bromides) are available to the modern organic chemist, so as long as you don't need the mercury or cadmium itself in the product of your labors (and why in God's name would you want that), you would be much better served making your reaction work with something a little more user-friendly if you can.
Valsynthese core expertise in hazardous and high energetic chemistry comprises the following specific reactions: Bromination, Chlorination, Reaction with high pressure gasses such as isoprene, Nitration, Oxidation, Azide chemistry, Hydrogenation, Grignard and Nitroglycerine formulations.

They are criminals, Grignard said, who graft an extremist religious ideology onto their existing tendency toward violence.
This step is the most essential one to the successful preparation of the Grignard reagent.
96) After conversion of (S)-25 into iodide, Cu-catalyzed cross-coupling with three different deuterium-substituted Grignard reagents was then used for the synthesis of isotopomers (R)-22, 23, and 24 (Scheme 18).
Magnesium and its compounds find diverse applications in Grignard reagent synthesis, medicinal products, alloys formation, textile, pyrotechnics and many other areas [1].
Related to these applications, various chemical protocols to attain novel surface properties have been reported, for instance, covalent functionalization under thermal conditions, electrochemical process, hydrosilylation catalysis, or photochemical reactions with alkenes, Grignard reagents or aldehydes [7-12].
