Unformatted text preview: any activation by a catalyst. • The Hydroboration mechanism has the elements of both hydrogenation and electrophilic addition and it is a stereospecific ( syn addition), meaning that the hydroboration takes place on the same face of the double bond, this leads cis stereochemistry. Notes: • Results • Define mechanism • Talk about hydroboration o Why you dried the flask • Talk about oxidation o Go through the mechanism o Major vs minor product (due t steric hindrance and electronic effect) o Go through hydrolysis step o Why use hydrogen peroxide o Why use sodium peroxide o Why is it important to butter the reaction mixture with sodium hydroxide o What will happen if u use too much sodium hydroxide • Talk about extraction • Talk about GC o Identify peaks o Give composistion, says its consistent with what was expected o Why 1-octene was in the GC...
