1.a , Answer: 4-(2,2-dibromoethyl)-3,5-dichloroheptane b. Answer: 6-sec-butyl-3,10-dimethyl-cyclodecyne c. Answer: cis-3,3-dimethyl-4-propyl-1,5-octadiene or (Z)-3,3-dimethyl-4-propyl-1,5-octadiene 2. Predict the major organic product for each reaction below. a. Answer: b. Answer: c. Answer: d. Answer: 3. In an abandoned laboratory has been found a flammable liquid, A, in a bottle bearing only the label “Compound A: [pic].” Government agents have offered you a considerable sum to determine the structure of this compound. After verifying the molecular formula by elemental analysis, you find that Compound A reacts with 1 mol equiv of hydrogen; and, after treatment with acidic [pic], Compound A gives the dicarboxylic acid C (see below). Another bottle from the same laboratory is labeled “Compound B (isomer of A).” Compound B also reacts with 1 mol equiv of hydrogen, but yields cyclohexanone after treatment with acidic [pic]. a. Suggest structures for A and B. Answer: b. What was the other product formed in the [pic] oxidation of B? Answer: [pic] 4. Show all reagents and intermediates necessary to carry out the following conversions. Answer: 5. The least reactive compound in an SN2 reaction. Answer: [pic] 6. The best nucleophile in a substitution reaction at a primary carbon. Answer: 7. The least reactive compound in a SN1 reaction. Answer: 8. The best solvent for an SN2 reaction. Answer: ----------------------- [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic] [pic]
