Problem 18

Suppose the following compound is heated in the presence of H 2 SO 4 . a. What constitutional isomer is produced in greatest yield? b. What stereoisomer is produced in greater yield?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Oxidation­reduction (Redox) reactions:  reactions that involve the transfer of electrons from one substance to another. o i.e the number of electrons assigned to each atom in the reactants change  Oxidation ­ the loss of electrons. (oxidation # goes up) Reduction ­ the gain of electrons. (oxidation # goes down) o HELPFUL HINT: remember O.I.L. R.I.G  Oxidation Is Loss, Reduction Is Gain Oxidation number: [oxidation state] a method of counting electrons and assigning them to atoms.  Oxidation numbers (i.e. +2, ­2) can look similar to charges (i.e. 2+, 2­) . o Tell the difference:  Charges are written as number then sign 2+, 3­
