Unformatted text preview: 2 to a conjugated diene. Draw the mechanism of electrophilic addition of HBr or Br 2 to a conjugated diene, showing how the 1,4 product is formed under thermodynamic conditions and the 1,2 product is formed under kinetic conditions. Identify the kinetic and thermodynamic pathways on a reaction coordinate diagram. Identify the type of electronic transition resulting from absorption of radiation of a UV-Visible wavelength. Use Beers law to show the factors that determine the amount of absorption observed for a given sample. Identify the relationship between degree of conjugation and wavelength & energy of UV-Vis radiation that is absorbed....
