||Chapter 10: Conjugation in Alkadienes and Allylic
Nucleophilic Substitution Reactions of Allyl
- Allyl chlorides, bromides and iodides are good substrates
for nucleophilic substitution reactions.
- A variety of nucleophiles can be used to generate
a range of new functional groups.
- The process can be complicated by the allylic rearrangement
where the nucleophile can attack either of the electron deficient sites.
- Can you account for why the 3o alcohol is
the major product ? ANSWER
- What does the fact that both the reactions shown give
the same product mixture suggest ? ANSWER
