Problem 2P

In a strongly acidic solution, cyclohexa-1,4-diene tautomerizes to cyclohexa-1,3-diene. Propose a mechanism for this rearrangement, and explain why it is energetically favorable.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Here we have show the mechanism for the interconversion of cyclohexa-1,4-diene to cyclohexa-1,3-diene.

Step-1

Here H-A  represents the general form of acid and A- is its conjugate base. In this reaction

Cyclohexa-1,4-diene can be converted into  cyclohexa-1,3-diene in presence of an acid and forms carbocation which on further reaction in presence...
