This question is killing me. In the laboratory camphor was reduced by methanol/sodium borohydride to create isoborneol and borneol. The question is which one is more stable and explain with a mechanism. I want to say that isoborneol is more stable because of the steric hinderance from the OH group, which would prevent further reactions from occuring. But I can't seem to find any information that would cofirm whether I'm right or wrong.
AND I have no idea how to explain with a mechanism. Would I just show how the borohydride could continue to attack the borneol?
Thanks so much for the help.
