Organic Chemistry II Reaction Mechanisms You Should Know The following is a list of reactions for which you should be able to describe and draw the detailed mechanism of the reaction. You will have specific questions asking you to write out these mechanisms on exams (typically 1 or 2 on each exam). You may also have additional questions that will require detailed knowledge of the mechanisms in order to be answered correctly. Textbook reference pages are given for each mechanism. You should also know the mechanisms covered in Organic Chemistry I. Exam 1 1. 1,2 and 1,4 Addition of HX to a Conjugated Diene. Page 614. 2.
