Problem 16P

Suppose we have some optically pure  -butyl acetate that has been "labeled" with the heavy $${ }^{18} O$$ isotope at one oxygen atom as shown.

(a) Draw a mechanism for the hydrolysis of this compound under basic conditions. Predict which of the products will contain the $${ }^{18} O$$ label. Also predict whether the butan- 2 -ol product will be pure , pure , or racemized.

(b) Repeat part (a) for the acid-catalyzed hydrolysis of this compound.

(c) Explain how you would prove experimentally where the $${ }^{18} O$$ label appears in the products. ($${ }^{18} O$$ is not radioactive.

Chemistry Lecture 7 Chapter 15: Chemical Equilibrium Dynamics of Chemical Reactions and Microscopic Reversibility  Reactions can be reversible and dynamic  when rate of forward and reverse reaction are equal  reaction arrows in each direction can denote this Equilibrium  does not mean same amount of reactant and product  concentrations do not need to be equal  can go in favor of products or reactants (can be determined by which you have relatively more of)  an expression  equilibrium constant =K eq (make sure its a capital K)  equilibrium constant only changes when temperature changes  Rate constant does not have to be equal for forward reaction and reverse reaction  when equilibrium is reached, the concentration of the products and reactants no longer change Rules for calculating  coefficients in front of the reactant turn into the exponents when plugging into equation  products are always divided by reactants  any products or reactants that are solid or liquid should not be included in the equation  only include reactants and products in the gaseous or aqueous state The I.C.E.
