They are therefore excellent to help you prepare. 1. Draw the mechanism of each step in the two-step transformation: N O Ph H (1) Ph Br (2) base N Ph Ph O 2. Explain the trend in acidities of these protonated amines. N O H H N O H N H pK a = 0.8 pK a = 5.3 pK a = 11.0 3. The reaction of a hydrazine with an acetylenic ester gives a pyrazolone. Write a detailed mechanism for the formation of the pyrazolone in the reaction below. [For tautomerizations, write “taut.” For proton transfers within a molecule, write “PT.” Make sure you push arrows for all other steps.] (Hint: the reactivity of an ! , " - unsaturated alkyne is similar to that of an ! , " -unsaturated alkene.)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
