Unformatted text preview: 6 H 13 I, in the ratio A:B = 10:90. Compound A, on being heated with potassium hydroxide in n-propyl alcohol, gives only 3,3-dimethyl-1-butene. Compound B undergoes elimination under these conditions to give 2,3-dimethyl-2-butene as the major product. Suggest structures for compounds A and B, and write a reasonable mechanism for the formation of each. 4. Draw the major product of each of the eight reactions, including stereochemistry.
