Unformatted text preview: If a reaction intermediate is a resonance hybrid, it is only necessary to draw the most important contributing resonance structure. You may assume that hydronium (H3O+) is present under the given reaction conditions. (Hint : The mechanism of acid-catalyzed ketone hydration that we discussed in lecture is reversible .)
