But it says ab , racemic mix will not form?
This two also
Hclo4 is acid protonates alcohol
Other two carbene addition
t-BuO is a base.
Alpha elimination from chloroform and then one Cl- leaves forming carbene.
This carbene adds on doubble bond.
And then carbocation formation? It's E1 like dehydration of alcohols
But what's the mechanism for the second one ? ( carbene addition)
Edited previous post.
And what o3/H2O2 will do ? With alkenes
Oxidative? But we take o3/H2o for that
Racemic mix forms when there is a introduction of a chiral centre in the product, so i don't know why B is given in that question @pratyaksh_tyagi
@Siddhant_Mudholkar how AB?
Here are some reagents bro, i think you are facing some problems in identifying these reagents
Thanks a lot
What's the mechanism of last reaction , and only with koh , self condensation takes place ?
Diols in presence of base, not necessarily koh, can be naoh, ca(oh)2,etc undergo self condensation
Ok got it
