Alkene + BH3/THF then H2O2 → Hydroboration oxidation of alkene
Reaction produces alcohol following Anti-Markovnikov addition:
(2) Oxidation (complicated mechanism)
Draw a structural formula for the product formed upon hydroboration/oxidation of the alkene below.
• Use wedge and hash bonds ONLY for rings.
• Do not show stereochemistry in other cases.
• If the reaction produces a racemic mixture, just draw one stereoisomer.
