Last Name: First Name: Score: Graded Homework Assignment #02 Deadline : 2:00 p.m., Friday, 1/29/10 LATE WORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED OR GRADED!!! This assignment is worth a total of 40 raw points. Each question is worth 20 points. 1. (20 points) Propose a mechanism for the overall transformation shown. Use “normal” curved arrows to show movement of pairs of electrons. Be sure that your mechanism shows all important reaction intermediates. Unless otherwise indicated, if an intermediate is a resonance hybrid, it is only necessary to draw the structure of the most important contributing resonance structure. Make sure you show all lone pairs and nonzero formal charges! To help you get started, the reactants involved in the first step of the mechanism are shown below the overall transformation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
