    Answer

    23 quiz 1 answer.png

    This is the thermodynamic enolate. Higher temperatures and reversible conditions lead to the more stable enolate.

    Exercise \(\PageIndex{2}\)

    Determine which enolate will form and label it as the kinetic or thermodynamic enolate.

    23 quiz 2.png

    Answer

    23 quiz 2 answer.png

    This is the kinetic enolate. Lower temperatures and strong hindered bases lead to the less substituted enolate.

    Exercise \(\PageIndex{3}\)

    Draw a reasonable mechanism for formation of the enolate, followed by reaction with bromoethane
