Answers to Problem 51, Chemistry 0243 - 2009 First, make a good three-dimensional drawing, keeping the large tert -butyl group equatorial. Only the hydrogens (not the deuteriums) are in position to take part in a 180° anti E2 reaction, thus leaving two deuteriums still in the molecule. (CH 3 ) 3 C Br D H C(CH 3 ) 3 D D base E2 H D H CH 3 CH 3 The two compounds must share cis and trans structures. There is no way to do this problem without making good, three-dimensional drawings of the compounds. Here they are in both
