Be aware of the thread title rules @Ramki
Bro I getting D
In second step, Carbocation will be a bit more stable at the alpha carbon of the carbonyl due to resonance.
So ring should open the opposite side of that you did.
Bro but inductive effect of oh and o
But bro carbocation is unstable
Bro what is the ans is my ans correct
Wait I'm getting A
What is given as the answer?
IDK bro the A option is from alpha cation
In your final product, the bulky carbonyl repel each other making it unstable
Confused bro alpha unstablility or repulsion
My sir had said That this is a little ambiguous
@pratyaksh_tyagi u have any idea bro
Bro ans is A
You still have some doubt ?
Isn't a nucleophile needed like H2O? Or will this work without it. I don't think epoxides cleave to give carbocactions(not sure)
Bro the toluene side chain reaction the how is chlorination controlled
In a how it is controlled to only 2 chlorines in halogenation
One thing you can do is use boiling points. Check the boiling point of the compound with 2 bromine and boil it as soon as it is formed. It will also help in improving yield. But only if its boiling point is lower.
