Unformatted text preview: In addition, the following problems will be discussed, which focus on Chapter 6 and early parts of Chapter 7: 1. Terpin hydrate is used medicinally as a cough expectorant and is a diol containing ten carbon atoms. It is prepared commercially by addition of water to limonene in the presence of dilute sulfuric acid. Draw a line structure for terpin hydrate. 2. Draw the structure of ( R )-3-methyl-1-pentene and state the number and kind of stereoisomers formed when this compound is treated with the following reagents: a) Br 2 in CH 2 Cl 2 solvent b) Cl 2 in H 2 O solvent c) Br 2 in ethanol solvent H 2 O H 2 SO 4 terpin hydrate limonene 2 Here are some excellent Flashware animations to take a look at from Chapter 7: Alcohol Dehydration Hydration of Alkenes Halogenation of Alkenes Halohydrin Formation Oxymercuration-Reduction Hydroboration-Oxidation of Alkenes Epoxidation (with peracid)...
