How to cycloalkene to methyl cycloalkene?
« on: June 24, 2018, 03:34:57 PM »
I thought about reacting the pie bond with  CH3Br to get Ch3 and Br as groups of the Cyclohexene and after that eliminate the Br from the ring with E2 or E1 method.

Could that work?
do you have a better way? 

Thanks!!!

My advice is to work backwards from the product and to use reactions that you have learned in class.

Thanks for the advice. I tried that and that's what I got (I added in the topic). what do you think about that?

I don't recall ever seeing a pi bond act as a nucleophile against CH3Br.

R-X don't add on alkenes like H-X do. It needs many haloatoms on R, and some conditions on the alkene

@OP, What reactions have you learned that form carbon-carbon bonds?

Thanks for the help. I've just been told by the teacher that we didn't learn the needed reaction and that I will learn it next year.
