Hydroboration-Oxidation → addition reaction → produces alcohol in the least substituted side from alkenes
Analyzing the given product, the starting material will appear as:
Can this alcohol be synthesized selectively by hydroboration-oxidation of an alkene?
If yes, draw the structure of the alkene.
If no, signify this by drawing ethane.
