Cumulative Substitution/Elimination

Time to test yourself on what we've learned thus far. You are on your own here. We will be predicting mechanisms so keep the flowchart handy. Good luck! 

Concept #1: Intro to Substitution/Elimination Problems


Alright guys so now we're literally going to put everything together and do some cumulative problems based on everything we've learned about these four mechanisms and the big daddy flow chart, OK? So what that means is that for these questions I'm not going to tell you what the mechanism is you're expected to use the flow chart to figure that out and then on top of that you're expected to actually know what the mechanisms do based on my descriptions of those mechanisms so if you're weak on that you might want to brush up on it before you start and then you have to predict all the products as well so this is literally a huge amount of practice but this is going to help because solidify this chapter so well so let's go ahead and get started with a problem number 1.

Time for some practice questions. Have a game plan ready and take it step by step. I believe in you all! Let's begin.

Practice: Predict the mechanism for the following reactions. Provide the full mechanism and draw the final product

Practice: What is the major product for reaction d ?

Good job! Way to stick with it.
