Problem

The Hammond Postulate is a seminal idea in organic chemistry. According to the Hammond Postulate, which of the following is correct?

a. All transition states resemble structurally the product more so than the reactant.

b. All transition states resemble structurally the reactant more so than the product.

c. The transition state of an endothermic reaction will resemble structurally the product more so than the reactant.

d. The transition state of an exothermic reaction step will resemble structurally the product more so than the reactant

e. The transition state of an exothermic reaction will resemble structurally the reactant more so than the product.

f. The transition state of an endothermic reaction will resemble structurally the reactant more so than the product.

g. The intermediate of an endothermic reaction step will resemble structurally the reactant more so than the product.
