Unformatted text preview: the product of the following reactions and another functional Thiols
Only produced by substitution. INVERT STEREOCHEMISTRY IF SN2!!!
Formed by a reaction similar to the Williamson Ether Synthesis. However, thiols are more
acidic, so a more mild base can be used.
1aSil treated with followed by r. will synthesize a sulfide, R-S-R. Applied problems- Predict the product of the following reactions A word of caution. Last semester, Dr. Miles put a reagent on the exam called "Raney Nickel."
You will learn what this does in Orgo 2. It is used to completely remove sulfur from a
compound. If you see it as an answer choice, and sulfur is somehow gone from the molecule, it
may have been caused by Raney Ni!...
