(f)This reaction illustrates identical reactivity at two equivalent sites in a molecule. Both alcoholfunctions are tertiary and benzylic and undergo acid-catalyzed dehydration readily.(g)The compound shown is DDT (standing for the nonsystematic name dichlorodiphenyl-trichloroethane). It undergoes b-elimination to form an alkene.(h)Alkyl side chains on naphthalene undergo reactions analogous to those of alkyl groups onbenzene.(i)Potassium carbonate is a weak base. Hydrolysis of the primary benzylic halide converts it toan alcohol.11.33Only benzylic (or allylic) hydrogens are replaced by N-bromosuccinimide. Among the fourbromines in 3,4,5-tribromobenzyl bromide, three are substituents on the ring and are not capable ofbeing introduced by benzylic bromination. The starting material must therefore have these three
