Problem: Provide an organic reaction in which the given intermediate or transition-state structure is involved and give a chemical equation for your selected organic reaction that includes the following in each of your answers: (i) structural formula(s) for the organic reactant(s) [Be sure to show stereochemistry clearly when necessary.]; (ii) a structural formula for the major organic product [Be sure to show stereochemistry clearly when necessary.]; (iii) the experimental conditions (Give structural formulas for organic compounds. Give a chemical formula for inorganic reactants or catalysts . If heat and/or light is needed, be sure to indicate it appropriately.) As we do for most organic reaction equations, the chemical equations that you give do not need to be balanced. Be sure to show stereochemistry clearly when necessary.
