Anyone @Bhuvanitha_2020 @Prajwal_2020_1


This is what I think..

In step 5 to 6 can we break double bond like that ? And in step 6 to 7 by attacking OH minus on carbonyl a bond does not usually shifts as i have seen only then there good leaving group like OR attached to it


Can you pls repeat which steps you are talking about?
