🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Totah's class at SU.

Solution: Complete the mechanism for the following acetal formation reaction. Be sure to show arrows to indicate movement of all electrons, write all lone pairs, all formal charges, and all the products for each step. Remember, I said all the products for each step. IF A NEW CHIRAL CENTER IS CREATED MARK IT WITH AN ASTERISK AND WRITE RACEMIC IF APPROPRIATE . Do not draw arrows to indicate how one contributing structure relates to the other.
