Chemical Biology 3OA3, September 2009 Page 59 2. (a) Which is the overall preferred hydrolysis site? (b) Are there any exceptions? 3. (a) Create a "box model" of OPE's active site based on the results in Table 4. Indicate the relative sizes of the hydrophobic sites, and rationalize your model. (b) Do the aromatic ring, R 3 and R 4 interact favourably / unfavourably / not at all with OPE? (c) Did the electron withdrawing character of R 3 = CH 2 CF 3 affect the rates relative to Et? (d) What effect would you expect an electron-withdrawing R 3 group to have on the reaction rate if the reaction occurred at R 3 ? 4. (a) Are there any exceptions to the generalizations made above?
