OsO4, NMO) then NaHSO3 - syn-1,2-Diol cleavage using NaIO4 or HIO4 - Ozonolysis followed by reduction using DMS or Zn/AcOH in Oxidative Cleavage of Alkenes - Permanganate-based Oxidative Cleavage of Alkenes - How do those last three reactions differ in conditions used and products formed? D. Radical Polymerization: - What are the three phases of a radical chain process? (initiation, propagation, termination) - How do we depict electron-pushing in radical-based reaction steps? (fishhook arrows) - In general, radicals positioned at more substituted carbon atoms are more stable than those positioned on less substituted carbons (remember that neutral radical stability often parallels cation stability). - What are monomers?
