Unformatted text preview: cis-cyclooctene, a n d provide the reactants (and conditions) that could be used to bring about the transformation. (4 pts each, 8 pts for the entire question) (reactant 1) (reactant 2) (reagents 1) (reagents 2) t r a n s : more negative heat of hydrogenation => less stable; remember, trans double bonds are imcopatable with the lower rings systems, and even if you get up to eight carbons a trans double bond still introduces significatn ring strain, coupled with some steric strain associated with the positions of some of the hydrogens in the contorted ring structure required Br conc.
