Problem 22.61

Early research on the mechanism of ester hydrolysis in aqueous base considered the following one-step SN2 mechanism as a possibility. C R O R' R'OH O C OR O H2O SN2 + + C 3 OCH CH2CH3 O H CH3 C X OH Using the chiral ester X as a starting material, draw the carboxylate anion and alcohol formed (including stereochemistry) from hydrolysis of X via the accepted mechanism (having a tetrahedral intermediate) and the one-step SN2 alternative. Given that only one alcohol, (2R)-2-butanol, is formed in this reaction, what does this indicate about the mechanism?
