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

Solution: A. Draw the mechanism of the following transformation. Show all steps of the reaction including curved arrows, lone pairs of electrons, formal charges, inorganic products and intermediates. Only only one of the stereoisomeric products needs to be drawn for the mechanism.     B. This reaction proceeds through what type of mechanism?     C. Would the resulting reaction mixture be optically active or optically inactive?     D. What is the relationship between the products?
