What type of rxn?
« on: October 30, 2020, 07:37:15 PM »
Need to find mechanism and absolute stereochemistry? This is a beta-gamma unsaturated ketone and we haven't discussed them in class at all. I might be a little tired in the head (exam coming up), but this can't simply be a protonation of the double bond, followed by a nucleophilic attack on the formed carbocation could it? Does anybody have any idea what type of reaction this is?
