O HCl, H 2 O OH OH O + H + O H H 2 O OH OH 2 OH OH- H + Arrows have to be present for the attack of water on the protonated epoxide. 3. A student wants to carry out an electrophilic addition of iodine (M.W. 253.81) to 2.5g of linoleic acid (M.W. 280.45) in 40 mL of CH 2 Cl 2 . Calculate the volume of iodine solution (30% w/v in CH 2 Cl 2 ) necessary for complete addition to this compound. Show your work. (3 points) 2.5 g 280.45 g/ mol = 0.008914 mol 0.008914 mol x 253.81 g/ mol = 2.262 g = 300 mg 1 mL 2262 mg x mL x = 7.54 mL There are two alkenes to react for complete addition : 7.54 mL x 2 equiv = 15.08 mL ii. Draw the final product, including the correct relative stereochemistry. (1 point)...
