Unformatted text preview: If an intermediate is a resonance hybrid, it is only necessary to draw the MOST IMPORTANT contributing resonance structure. You may assume that H 2 O is present in large excess. To help you get started, the reactants involved in the first step of the mechanism are written below the overall transformation. Although the major organic product is formed as a racemic mixture, it is not necessary to show stereochemistry in your mechanism. H 2 O (large excess) O H Br Br O H Br Br O Br + Br + H 3 O...

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
