(e)The tertiary bromide undergoes E2 elimination to give a carbon–carbon double bond.11.32All the specifc reactions in this problem have been reported in the chemical literature with resultsas indicated.(a)Hydroboration–oxidation of alkenes leads to syn anti-Markovnikov hydration of the doublebond.(b)The compound contains a substituted benzene ring and an alkene-like double bond. When hy-drogenation of this compound was carried out, the alkene-like double bond was hydrogenatedcleanly.(c)Free-radical chlorination will lead to substitution of benzylic hydrogens. The starting materialcontains four benzylic hydrogens, all of which may eventually be replaced.(d)Epoxidation of alkenes is stereospeci
