Unformatted text preview: first substitution reaction. (a) Draw the nucleophile structure in the first step (2 pts). (b) Identify the stereogenic (chiral) center in the alkyl chloride starting material. Mark the chiral center with * in the above scheme. (1 point) (c) If the rate of the reaction depends on the concentrations of both the alkyl chloride and phenol, is this an S N 1 or S N 2 reaction? (1 point) (d) If you start with 100% R-alkyl chloride and the substitution proceeds with inversion, draw the chemical structure of Prozac ultimately produced and identify its chiral center as R or S . (3 point) hint: priority O > phenyl > CH 2 Cl N CH 3 CH 3 + CF 3 OH O N CH 3 CH 3 CF 3 O N CH 3 H CF 3 Prozac (fluoxetine)...
