Bimolecula r Elimination Revisited Regioselectivity in E2 reactions depend on the base o We can control (to an extent) which hydrogen is removed o More substituted double bonds are more stable: Saytzev rule o If a more hindered base is used, the thermodynamically less favored
terminal alkene is formed, this follows Hofmann rule E2 reactions offer favor trans over cis o More thermodynamically favorable Some E2 processes are stereospecific o Before E2 reaction takes place, the bond will rotate so that the leaving o
group and hydrogen are anti One enantiomer produces one type while the other produces the other type 11.11. P reparation of Alkenes by Dehydration of Alcohols ...
