Unformatted text preview: products of over-alkylation. The imine formation-hydrogenation sequence avoids this problem. • Some problems in synthesis were discussed that allowed us to refresh our memory of some key reactions from 310M (epoxidation, H 2 CrO 4 oxidation, ozonation, E 2-elimination). • Be sure to know the mechanisms for ketal/acetal, dithiane, imine and enamine formation and hydrolysis. • The Wolff-Kishner Reduction was discussed and we reviewed the mechanism. • The Clemmenson reduction was discussed. • The oxidation of aldehydes employing sliver oxide was discussed. • The Baeyer-Villiger oxidation was discussed and we reviewed the mechanism....
