🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Stocker's class at UMD.
When 2-bromo-2-methylbutane is treated with a base, a mixture of 2-methyl-2-butene and 2-methyl-1-butene is produced. When potassium hydroxide is the base, 2-methyl-1-butene accounts for 45% of the mixture. But when potassium tert-butoxide is the base, 2-methyl-1-butene accounts for 70% of the mixture. What would you predict for the percent of 2-methyl-1-butene in the mixture if potassium propoxide were the base?
a) less than 45%
c) between 45% and 70%
d) more than 70%
