Additional Problems
For the reaction shown below, draw the structure of the major product(s). Where appropriate, write "No Reaction". Assume all chiral starting materials are optically pure. Show stereochemistry where appropriate. Indicate whether the product exists as a single enantiomer or a racemic mixture.
Which of the following reaction conditions will achieve the following transformation in good yields?  
Predict the organic product of the following reaction. When appropriate, be sure to indicate stereochemistry. If more than one product is formed be sure to indicate the major product. Draw your answer in skeletal form. You will be graded on the product your draw from the reaction no other information is needed for this question.
A student wants to synthesize propionitrile from ethanol.Which of the following reagents would work? (Select all that apply).a. 1. H3O+ 2. NaCNb. 1. SOCl2, pyridine 2. NaCNc. 1. PBr3, pyridine 2. NaCNd. NaCNe. 1. HBr 2. NaCN
Provide a reasonable mechanism for the transformation below. Hint: This occurs in three steps, all of which are Lewis Acid/Base reactions. Fill in the missing intermediates A and B. Be sure to provide the arrows to show electron flow.
Draw the major organic product of the reaction shown below.You do not have to consider stereochemistry.You do not have to explicitly draw H atoms.In cases where there is more than one answer, just draw one.
