Unformatted text preview: CHEMISTRY 225 i4; 7 SUBSTITUTION REACTIONS WORKSHEET Tart-butyl ethyl ether (TBEE) is an oxygenated gasoline additive. It can be synthesized in the lab by the reaction of tert-butyl bromide and ethanol. Write a detailed, stepwise reaction mechanism to account for the synthesis of TBEE. A complete reaction mechanism wili include structures of all intermediates and curved arrows to represent the "flow" of an eiectron pair. It is not necessary to draw structures for transition states.

Inciuded on the cover were the two carbocations shown below. The triphenylmethyl cation is known to be more stable than the terr- butyl cation. Use this information to cornment on the relative reactivity of triphenylmethyl bromide and Icrt-butyl bromide under conditions favoring SN l-type disseciation (reactions below).
