11.9 The dihydronaphthalene in which the double bond is conjugated with the aromatic ring is more sta- ble; thus 1,2-dihydronaphthalene has a lower heat of hydrogenation than 1,4-dihydronaphthalene. 11.10 ( b ) The regioselectivity of alcohol formation by hydroboration oxidation is opposite that pre- dicted by Markovnikov s rule. ( c ) Bromine adds to alkenes in aqueous solution to give bromohydrins. A water molecule acts as a nucleophile, attacking the bromonium ion at the carbon that can bear most of the positive charge, which in this case is the benzylic carbon. ( d ) Peroxy acids convert alkenes to epoxides. 11.11 Styrene contains a benzene ring and will be appreciably stabilized by resonance, which makes it lower in energy than cyclooctatetraene. 11.12 The dimerization of cyclobutadiene is a Diels Alder reaction in which one molecule of cyclobuta- diene acts as a diene and the other as a dienophile. 11.13 ( b ) Since twelve 2 p orbitals contribute to the cyclic conjugated system of [12]-annulene, there
