Problem 61P

Propose a mechanism for the following reaction:

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 61P

Step 1 of 4</p>

The mechanism is shown as follows:

Heterolytic cleavage of carbon and halogen gives a stable carbocation.

Step 2 of 4</p>

Even though the rearrangement step transforms a stable tertiary carbocation into a less stable secondary cation, relief of strain in expansion forms a four five membered ring makes the alkyl migration favorable. Five membered rings are more stable than four membered rings due to less strain.
