Unformatted text preview: eq at 400 K. (c) Sketch an energy diagram for the reaction, labeling any known energy changes and the location of transition states and/or intermediates. (d) Write a complete, detailed mechanism for the reaction, using curved arrows to represent electron flow. Note that water is present as well as H 3 O + under aqueous acidic conditions, and that the acid is catalytic in this reaction. (e) The trisubstituted alkene formed in this reaction can further react with HBr to form a tertiary cycloalkyl bromide as the major product. Write a mechanism for this transformation, using curved arrows to represent electron flow. 2 Here are some good Flashware animations to take a look at from Chapter 5: Arrow Pushing: nucleophiles/electrophiles Arrow Pushing: form/break C-X sigma bond Arrow Pushing: form/break C-X + sigma bond Arrow Pushing: nucleophilic substitution (Nu-+ R-L) Arrow Pushing: nucleophilic substitution (Nu + R-L + )...
