I am sorry if this question is too easy!
0.04 mol of a polymer (MW: 1000 g/mol) is reacted with B at 150 C in nitrogen atmosphere for several hours using catalyst (0.05 wt% of polymer)
My question is, how do you calculate 0.05 wt% of polymer so I know how much cat I need? Using the internet, I got an answer of 0.02 g but I am not sure if this is right!
Also, what is the best way to achieve nitrogen atmosphere? Would I need a reflux condenser? B is not a solvent, it is another reactant. Would I need mineral oil? Or a schlenk line?
