These are the homework exercises to accompany the Textmap for McMurry's Organic Chemistry textbook.
Classify each reaction as addition, elimination, substitution, or rearrangement.
A = Substitution; B = Elimination; C = Addition
Radical chlorination of alkanes are not useful due to uncontrolled substitution. Draw the mono-substituted products of Cl2 reacting with 2-methylbutane.
Propose a radical mechanism for the following reaction:
Label the following either an electrophile or a nucleophile.
A = Electrophile
B = Nucleophile
C = Both (carbonyl carbon is electrophile and oxygen is nucleophile)
Predict the product of the following reactions:
Draw curved arrows to indicate mechanisms for the following reactions:
Which reaction is faster, ΔG‡ = + 55 kJ/mol or ΔG‡ = + 75 kJ/mol?
The + 55 kJ/mol reaction is the faster reaction.
Draw an energy diagram with a exergonic first step and an endergonic second step. Label the diagram.
