Elimination reaction
« on: January 20, 2012, 08:15:14 AM »

Can anyone please explain why this product is formed instead of any other possible product(s)? http://www.sendspace.com/file/6ze3yf Is that the amine will first attack the most electrophilic carbon , the one "separates" 2 bromine atoms. Alkylated amine is then formed  and it will in turn form a double bond on the previosuly mentioned carbon atom and the one near to this atom and to carbonyl group , i.e. C=C on upper carbon and middle carbon atoms. This is because the delocalization of pi electrons can increase the stability of the product .

Can you link directly to an image? I'm personally a little leery about downloading files from strange websites.

I agree with Honclbrif, please attach the image to your post. Click on Additional Options below the edit box, then attach the file. A jpg file will be viewable directly in the forum.

Look for the two most acidic protons in the SM and you will get your answer.
