Massachusetts Institute of Technology 5.13: Organic Chemistry II Fall 2003, S. Tabacco± Optional Problem Set 7 If you would like feedback from your TA, please turn your problem set in by 4PM on Tuesday, December 2nd. 1. With the aid of three-dimensional drawings, provide a clear rationale for the products that are observed in the following transformations. Your rationale must include the mechanism for each transformation. Hint: Think cyclohexane chair! OH H O H H H 2 O, OTs OTs H OH O H 2 O, 2. Please provide a detailed mechanism for the illustrated transformation.± HO OMe F 3 C OH O OMe 3. Please provide a detailed mechanism that accounts for the formation of all three of the observed products. Hint: Think Beckmann rearrangement. O O H N Me O O O Me 1. NH 2 OH, HCl O N N O H Me 2.
