Markovnikov's rule

Problem # 1336

Determine a synthesis to prepare 2-chloro-4-methylpentane from 1-iodo-4-methylpentane.



Problem # 520

Let's work through an alkene addition reaction. Draw the structures for each of the species in the three boxes below (3º carbocation, protonated thiol, and thiol). Also draw curved arrows to show electron movement. Note: thiol = RSH, like an alcohol, but with sulfur instead of oxygen.


Problem # 342

For the reaction below, draw the structures of the carbocation intermediate and the final product.


Problem # 336

Predict the product(s) of the reaction below, and used curved arrows to show a mechanism.

Problem # 334

 Let's go over how a carbocation can form from an alkene.

Use curved arrows to show the two carbocations that can from from 1-methylcyclohexene.
