Williamson ether synthesis → production of ether from alkoxide + 1° alkyl halide
Alkene + H2SO4 → acid-catalyzed hydration (follows Markonivkov rule)
Alkene + HBr/ROOR → radical halogenation (follows anti-Markonivkov rule)
The most common method for the synthesis of unsymmetrical ethers is the Williamson synthesis, a reaction (SN2) of an alkoxide ion with an alkyl halide. Two pathways are possible, but often one is preferred. Construct the preferred pathway for the synthesis of 2-propoxypropane from propene, with propene-derived alkyl halide and alkoxide intermediates, by dragging the appropriate intermediates and reagents into their bins. Not every given reagent or intermediate will be used.
