KEY ___________ Page 1 I. (20 points) When Compound A is treated with one equivalent of lithium diisopropylamide (LDA) followed by addition of cyclohexanone at -78 o C, Compound B is the major product. If the reaction is carried out at 0 o C, then the major product is Compound C . Compound B can be converted into Compound C by treatment with LDA at 0 o C .

For full credit clearly show the relative energies and label the points in the energy diagram corresponding to the respective transition states ( TS-B and TS-C ) and products ( B and C ). G conjugate base of Compound A + O 6 The kinetic product is: The thermodynamic product is: 2 2 reaction coordinate (3 pts B higher than C) (c) Specifically what has happened upon changing the temperature from -78 o C to 0 o C that caused the change in the major product? 4
