Question no 1
What is the answer?
Option A but how
@Samarth_2020 shouldn’t Et- attack on the carbon below epoxide linkage ? Because in lower C the electron density is lower
I didn't know this bhaiya, but if it were attack the lower carbon, do we get the desired product??
@Samarth_2020 we won’t get option A then , and that’s why i doubt that option A will be correct .
Also you have written that Et- will attack from the back side and then you have shown OH and Et on the same side ?! Is it that I’m missing out something ?
Sorry by mistake i told option A is answer answer is option C actually they are showing option C answers but mentioning option A as answer
Actually in epoxy-grignard questions, we were not taught about stereochemistry involved in it. @Shwetanshu_2018 bhaiya, if you know then explain...
@abhijit_2020 can you please post the solution given in the book , because i think , option B should be correct
Oh sorry option B is correct i got confused by seeing partly shaded carbon Et Group and Darkly shaded Oh group
I think least reactive will be D and most reactive will be A ??
