Unformatted text preview: Br NaOEt OEt + 55% 45% Br NaOEt OEt + + 82% 18% CHM 151L.001; Problem Set 7 3 3. Primary alkyl tosylate 1 reacts in a bimolecular reaction with sodium methoxide to give the expected products 2 and 3 in the expected ratio ( 2 / 3 = 70/30). Similar reaction between tosylate 4 and sodium methoxide affords the different expected products 5 and 6 in the new ratio of 5 / 6 = 85/15. What are the structures of 2 , 3 , 5 , and 6 ?
