Bocknack CH 310M/318M Fall 2009 Graded Homework Problem #16 – Answer Key Deadline : 3:00 p.m., Monday, 11/9/09 LATE WORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED OR GRADED!!! This problem is worth a total of 20 raw points. Each box is worth 4 points. Compounds A and B each have molecular formula C 6 H 12 . When A or B is exposed to H 2 over a Pd catalyst, the only product isolated is 3-methylpentane. When A or B is treated with HBr, the same optically inactive compound, C (C 6 H 13 Br), is obtained as the major product. When A or B is treated with O 3 followed by (CH 3 ) 2 S, the same mixture of products is obtained. This mixture is comprised of compound D , which has molecular formula C 4 H 8 O, and compound E , which has molecular formula C 2 H 4 O. When A is treated with BH 3 , followed by H 2 O 2 , NaOH, H 2 O, the chiral alcohol indicated in the reaction scheme below is obtained as a racemic mixture. When B is treated with BH 3 , followed by H 2 O 2 , NaOH, H 2 O, a different chiral alcohol is
