16.23 ( a ) There are three methyl-substituted thianes, two of which are chiral. ( b ) The locants in the name indicate the positions of the sulfur atoms in 1,4-dithiane and 1,3,5- trithiane. ( c ) Disul f des possess two adjacent sulfur atoms. 1,2-Dithiane is a disul f de. ( d ) Two chair conformations of the sulfoxide derived from thiane are possible; the oxygen atom may be either equatorial or axial. 16.24 Intramolecular hydrogen bonding between the hydroxyl group and the ring oxygens is possible when the hydroxyl group is axial but not when it is equatorial. 16.25 The ethers that are to be prepared are First examine the preparation of each ether by the Williamson method. Methyl propyl ether can be prepared in two ways:
