These are the homework exercises to accompany the Textmap for McMurry's Organic Chemistry textbook.
In elimination reactions there tends to have a mixture of products. What are the two possible alkene products for the reaction of 2-bromo-2-methylpentane with NaOH?
Predict the E/Z isomers for the following molecule when reacted with H2SO4.
Predict the products for 1,2-dimethylcyclopentene reacting with Br2 with proper stereochemistry.
Predict the products for 1,2-dimethylcyclpentene reacting with HCl, give the proper stereochemistry. What is the relationship between the two products?
These compounds are enantiomers.
Predict the product of the following reaction:
When butene is treated with NBS in the presence of water, the product shows that the bromine is on the least substituted carbon, is this Markovnikov or anti-Markovnikov?
Since the bromine is the first addition to the alkene, this addition would be an anti-Markovnikov addition.
In each case, predict the product(s) of these reactants of oxymercuration.
Propose the alkene that was the reactant for each of these products of oxymercuration.
Predict the products if the following alkenes were reacted with catalytic hydrogen.
What would you expect the products to be from the reaction of cis-2-pentene with m-chloro-peroxybenzoic acid? Show the stereochemistry of the final product.
Give a reaction scheme with starting alkenes and required reagents to produce the following compounds.
Predict the following products. Will they be the same product?
No they will not be the same product, they will be isomers of each other.
Propose the monomer units in the following polymers:
Predict the products of the following reaction showing stereochemistry.
The products (Markovnikov) are diastereomers of one another.
