Note that the inversion of stereochemistry seen with SN2 reactions insures that the desired (S) isomer of 2-pentanethiol is produced. 9Ts ~2 Step 2: (inversion) (S)-2-Pentanethiol Problem 10.8 Draw structural formulas for the alkenes formed by acid-catalyzed dehydration ofeach alcohol. Where isomeric alkenes are possible, predict which is the major product. ~ acid-catalyzed dehydration. + (a) 2-Methyl-2-butanol ~ Major acid-catalyzed CfOH dehydration. ~CH3 + crC~ (b) CH 3 1-Methylcyclopentanol Major (b) (a)HO~ (S)-Z-Methyl-l-butanol 1-Methylcyclopentanol Problem 10.2 C"lassify each alcohol as primary, secondary, or tertiary.

HO~OH Heptane 1,5-Pentanediol In order of increasing boiling point they are: Heptane I-Hexanol bp 98.4°C bp IS7"C Hydrogen bonding, or lack of it, is the key. Both I-hexanol and 1,4-pentanediol can associate by hydrogen" bonding, so their boiling points are substantially higher than heptane. Because I,S-pentaliediol has more sites for hydrogen bonding, it has a higher boiling point than I-hexanoI. Problem 1O.5 Arrange these compounds in order of increasing solubility in water.
