Chem 112A: Study Outline for Exam II The following outline lists the concepts and tools that I hope you will retain from the Frst portion of the class. The exam questions will test some of the topics that are listed below and will be based entirely on the lecture notes. Although there are no speciFc reading assignments in the Loudon textbook, reviewing Chapters 5-9 will be helpful. Please note that the material presented in the Tuesday evening laboratory lectures (such as NMR) will not be covered on this exam. The exam will be held in class from 8:00 (sharp!) to 9:30 am on Tuesday, November 9th. You are encouraged to use molecular model kits, so long as they are fully disassembled (with the exception of unsubstituted cyclohexane rings) when the exam begins. No calculators will be necessary. You are strongly encouraged to take the exam in pencil, although that is up to you! The following two review sessions will be held to help you with your questions: Sunday 4-6 pm in 100 Lewis Hall Monday 5-6 pm in 10 Evans Hall I will also hold my normal ofFce hours from 3-5 pm on Monday in the Bixby Commons. There will be no laboratory classes this week. Also note that there is no class on Thursday due to the Veterans Day holiday. Good Luck Studying! -MB± 1. Reactions of the alkenes a. Review all of the basic reactions of the alkenes (including their mechanisms where required, as noted in class). The following reactions are new, and will serve as the focus for this exam: 1. Hydroboration - you only need to know the mechanism of the B-H addition to the alkene. 2. Dihydroxylation - you only need to know the mechanism of the Frst addition step. 3. Ozonolysis - you only need to know the mechanism of the addition of O 3 to the alkene. Note that different reagents added in the second step can determine the Fnal products of the reaction. b. Pay particular attention to the syn-stereoselectivity of these reactions (see also 3j, below) and the structural differ- ences in the alcohol products that are produced by the hydroboration, oxymercuration, and hydration of alkenes. 2. Understanding reactions using energy diagrams
