🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Yuan's class at UCF.

Solution: Hydrolysis of 2-bromo-2-methylpropane (tert-butyl bromide) yields 2-methylpropan-2-ol. (CH3)3CBr + 2H2O → (CH3)3COH + H3O+ + Br -Give the SN1 mechanism. Draw structures - including electrons and charges and add curved arrows.
