  4. Image Upload
    • aldehyde -> alcohol
    • mild reducing agent (only reacts w/ aldehydes & ketones)

  5. reagents that make -OH a good leaving group
    • 1) TSCl, pyr (replaces OH with OTS)
    • 2) SOCl2, pyr
    • 3) PBr(replaces OH with Br)
  6. NaH (2 functions)
    • 1) deprotonates OH to O-
    • 2) forms alkene at site of halogen (E2 rxn)
  7. under acidic conditions, attack occurs at the ____ hindered side
    MOST hindered
  8. under basic conditions, attack occurs at the _____ hindered side
    LEAST hindered
  9. nucleophilic acids (3)
    • 1) HBr
    • 2) HCl
    • 3) HI
  10. non-nucleophilic acids (3)
    • 1) HNO3
    • 2) H2SO4
    • 3) HClO4
  11. MgBr+-R-
    • Grignard reagent
    • strong base, carbon nucleophile
    • attacks less hindered side of epoxide
    • useful in adding hydrocarbons to a molecule
  12. LiAlH4 (2 functions)
    • 1) strong reducing agent (carboxylic acid -> alcohol)
    • 2) breaks open epoxide without adding anything to it
  13. form less substituted alkene with ____ bulky base
    • more 
    • eg: LDA
  14. dehydration (E1) rxn
    Image Upload
    H2SO4, H2O, heat
  15. Image Upload
    • hydrogenation
    • syn addition
    • H2, Pt catalyst
  16. dihalogenation of an alkene 
    1) 1st halogen forms a(n) ____
    2) 2nd halogen (or nucleophilic solvent) attacks ____ hindered side
    • 1) 3-membered ring across alkene double bond
    • 2) more hindered side
  17. Markovnikov's Rule
    H from reagent added to C (of alkene) w/ most H's
  18. 1. BH3
    2. 3H2O2, 3NaOH
    • hydroboration
    • adds H to more and -OH to least substituted side

  19. 1. Hg(OAc)2, H2O
    2. NaBH4
    • oxymercuration-demercuration (reduction)
    • Markovnikov addition of H-OH (in anti fashion) -> OH added to more substituted side
  20. KMnO4, H2O, NaOH
    • dihydroxylation
    • syn addition of 2 -OHs across alkene
  21. 1. O3

    OH -> C=C
  24. H2SO4, H2O (added to alkene)
    OH added to more hindered side (Markovnikov addition)
