Unformatted text preview: The mixture of C and D is optically inactive, however. When A is exposed first to O 3 , followed by H 2 O 2 , the products are acetone and E (C 3 H 6 O 2 ). Finally, when A is treated with H 2 over a Pd catalyst, 2-methylpentane is formed. Propose structures for the unknown compounds A , B , C , D , and E . Write your answers in the appropriate boxes in the reaction scheme below. Be sure to show stereochemistry clearly and unambiguously where necessary! A (C 6 H 12 ) B (C 6 H 13 Cl) + C (C 6 H 14 O) D (C 6 H 14 O) + O Acetone (C 3 H 6 O) E (C 3 H 6 O 2 ) 2-Methylpentane HCl 1) BH 3 2) H 2 O 2 , NaOH, H 2 O H 2 , Pd (cat.) 1) O 3 2) H 2 O 2...
