Identify the intermediate (A) and show the mechanism for its formation. b. Show the mechanism for conversion of A to B. Which would be formed more rapidly, A or B?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Week 1 Lecture 1  Nucleophile: A compound containing an electron-rich atom that is capable of donating a pair of electrons  Electrophile: A compound containing an electron-deficient atom that is capable of accepting a pair of electrons  There are 4 types of main mechanisms  Nucleophilic Attack: A nucleophile and its electrons attack a positive atom.  Loss of a Leaving group: where an atom takes electrons from the bond and leave the molecule.  Proton Transfer: An electron rich atom takes a hydrogen from a hydrogen rich atom.  Carbocation rearrangement: Either a methyl or hydride group will transfer to a carbocation spot.  S 1: N
