Assignment 3 2 2. Explain the formation of the major product: 3. Draw the mechanism for the isomerization of ( A ) to ( B ), and vice versa. Which isomer dominates if the isomerization temperature is 100 ° C (i.e. which is the most stable isomer)? 4. The natural product nerol when warmed with acid leads to a number of cyclic products including terpineol and terpinene. Explain the formation of these two products from Nerol and the isomer called geraniol , where the double bond at C2 has the E geometry are the major constituents of rose oil. Terpineol and terpinene are found in tea tree oil. 5.
