Alkene + BH3/THF then H2O2 → Hydroboration oxidation of alkene
Reaction produces alcohol following Anti-Markovnikov addition:
Draw a structural formula for the alkene you would use to prepare the alcohol shown by hydroboration/oxidation.
• 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.
