|Chapter 6 : Reactions of Alkenes : Addition Reactions|
|Qu 1:||Show the major products, with stereochemistry where applicable, for the reactions of :|
|(a) propene and (b) methylcyclohexene with each of
the following :
|Qu 2:||Using diagrams, mechanisms with curly arrows, and / or short paragraphs, explain the following observation:|
|Qu 3:||The following paragaraph describes a series of reactions on a series of unknown but related compounds:|
|An achiral hydrocarbon A was analysed by combustion analysis. 0.01g of A gave 0.03217g of CO2 and 0.011g H2O.|
A was added to conc. H2SO4 and
the non-polymeric portion of the organic extract was found to contain small
amounts of the starting material A and three other isomeric hydrocarbons,
B, C and D. All four compounds were further investigated
chemically by their reactions with H2 / Pt and with HBr (dark).
What are A - G ?
