This is the last of three ways to add alcohol to a double bond. This reaction creates alcohols that are much different from the first two methods, so pay attention to the differences!
Concept #1: General properties of hydroboration-oxidation.
Concept #2: A worked-example of the acid-catalyzed hydroboration-oxidation mechanism.
1. Electrophilic Addition
Practice: Indentify the mechanism of reaction and predict the product.
Note: @ 3:40 there should be an OH group, not BH2. :)
Practice: Predict the product of the following reaction.
