Be able to use projections to represent chiral compounds and to show their absolute configurations and be able to determine absolute configurations given a projection. 3. Be able to do calculations associated with optical rotation 4. Be able to predict the products of the reaction of a chiral starting material in the various reactions we have studied so far. 5.

Unformatted text preview: 6. Understand in detail the mechanisms of all the nucleophilic substitution and elimination reactions presented. 7. Be able to predict the effect of changes in the leaving group, the attacking group, the substrate, and the solvent on the relative rates of these reactions. 8. Be able to predict when 1,2-hydride and 1,2-alkyl group shifts occur and the resulting products. 9. Be able to predict the stereochemistry of alkenes formed from E1 and E2 reactions. 10. Be sure you still have the skills you needed for Exam I. You will need many of them for this exam, as well....
