3) When 1-bromomethylcylcohexene is heated in ethanol, three products are observed. Give mechanisms to account for each product. Br OCH 2 CH 3 OCH 2 CH 3 ethanol heat + + 4) The reaction of sodium ethoxide with methyl iodide is sensitive to the polarity of the solvent. Draw an energy diagram for this reaction in a polar solvent and in a non-polar solvent. Use the energy diagram to predict which reaction will be faster. 5) a) Design an alkyl halide that will give only 2, 4-diphenyl-2-pentene upon treatment with potassium tert-butoxide (a strong hindered base). b) What relative stereochemistry is required in your alkyl halide so that only the following stereoisomer of the product is formed?
