Unformatted text preview: Br CH 3 OH (solvent) Δ OCH 3 + CH 3 OH 2 + Br (racemic) In the space below, propose a mechanism to account for this reaction. Use curved arrows to show movement of electron pairs, and draw structures of all important reaction intermediates. If an intermediate is a resonance hybrid, please draw ALL IMPORTANT contributing resonance structures. Although the product shown is formed as a racemic mixture, it is not necessary to show stereochemistry in your mechanism....
