Practice Exam 7 (10/17/07) - 15 minutes (7 pts) I. Give the systematic name for the following structure. Cl Br ( Z, 2R )-3-bromo-2-chloro-3-hexene (15 pts) II. In elimination reactions, t -butyl chloride reacts faster than isobutyl chloride. The difference in reactivities is accounted for by the stabilities of the incipient carbocations. Explain why the carbocation formed from -butyl chloride is more stable than the one from isobutyl chloride. Cl KO t Bu Cl KO t Bu tertiary: more stable primary; less stable A tertiary carbocation is more stable than the primary one because a tertiary carbocation
