Unformatted text preview: Finally, if B is treated with H 2 over Pd metal, 2 equivalents of H 2 are absorbed, and Compound E (C 4 H 10 ) is isolated in high yield. Compounds B , C , D , and E are all optically inactive. Propose structures for the unknown compounds A , B , C , D , and E by completing the reaction scheme provided below. Be sure to show stereochemistry clearly and unambiguously where necessary! NaNH 2 (2 equiv.) H 2 Pd (cat.)
