Unformatted text preview: RESONANCE STRUCTURE!!! H O H H H 3 C O H O H H O + H OH O H Br H O 1) NaOH, H 2 O 2) H 3 O + O H O H H O + Na Br The mechanism of this overall transformation is outlined in the reaction scheme given. Complete this mechanism by drawing curved arrows to show movement of electron pairs in each step. Draw structures of all important reaction intermediates in the large boxes. (The other product is also drawn in the large box if it DOES NOT react further.) BE SURE TO SHOW STEREOCHEMISTRY CLEARLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY in all of the structures that you draw! Two of the important reaction intermediates are resonance hybrids it is only necessary for you to draw one of the important contributing resonance structures....
