Zaitsev's rule
« on: October 27, 2009, 09:54:53 PM »
I know that Zaitsev's rule says that the major product in Elimination will always be the one that is more highly substituted, however, how can you tell what is more substituted? I know this might be an easy answer, but i'm just not sure on how this works. If someone could explain it to me that would be awesome.

thanks in advanced,

More substituted means Hydrogen is substitued by some other group like alkyl or any other functional group
