Unformatted text preview: γ-butyrolactone, is formed. Explain this result. Use chemical structures and reaction schemes to support your reasoning. HO H O O O CH 2 C l2 N H CrO 3 Cl PCC PCC 3. What carbonyl compound and phosphonium ylide pair is needed to synthesize the following compounds using the Wittig reaction? CH=CHCH 2 CH 2 CH 3 (a) (b) 4. Equilibrium between a typical ketone and its corresponding hydrate strongly favors the ketone. For cyclopropanone, however, equilibrium strongly favors the hydrate. Provide a plausible explanation for this difference....
