Forms acid ?
Some cyclisation takes place I guess bro:
I think it should be this:
But it there's also a probability of a five membered ring if H2SO4 attacks double bond first but then I think O= is attacked before double bond.
What do you think?
@Viraam_Rao can you post the full mechanism if possible?
I actually thought that 5 membered ring thing, but now I think you’re right. We all discussed about what is attacked first, a while ago, remember?
Yeah and didn't we say that O= would be attacked first?
As far as I remember, yes
Then shouldn't it be six membered?
Yes, I think that’s right bro
Whats the given answer?
@Viraam_Rao yep that looks perfect
If i am not wrong, this question is from 8th apil, second shift.
The answer is A
Yeah that's right. I forgot to tautomerise the enol into keto form.
@Ishita_Anand is right, the answer is A
