Grignard Addition with carbon dioxide

Can you clarify why the phenyl magnesium bromide will not add carbon dioxide in the Grignard addition module?
thanks!

Hi @matchetk,

That reaction is supposed to occur as expected, but there is a bug in the programmed reaction time that prevents the products from forming. We are working to make the fix! Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Thanks for your note!

I have also mentioned this reaction not working… Since this is a reaction that we actually would do in the in person lab it would be nice for in to work with labz.

Thanks
