Surprisingly, the reaction shown below goes through classical carbocation. What is the major product of this reaction ?
As refer to the above image, −Br
attaches to the carbon which is more stable due to more
hyperconjugated structures. So, the product formed is trans− 1,3−dibromo−cyclo−hexane.
Which of the following reagents would distinguish cis-cyclopenta -1, 2- diol from the trans-isomer?
How can the reaction above be made to proceed in the forward reaction?
