Unformatted text preview: use of PCl 3 to prepare MeCl from methanol? In a few words, explain the key mechanistic difference that accounts for these two different pathways. You may use a diagram to illustrate your argument but remember to be brief. Wordiness can hurt you. NU, Winter 2007, Quiz 1, Chem 210-2 4 3. (18 pts). Propose a synthesis of the following compound from methane as the only carbon-containing starting material. You may use any necessary inorganic reagents, m CPBA, any alcohol protecting reagent, and any sulfur-containing reagent. Hint: If you don’t know how to start from methane, start from a known 2-C starting materials that could be made from methane… O O...
