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

Solution: Provide a detailed mechanism for the following transformation. Show all charges and intermediates, and use curved arrows to indicate the flow of electrons. Do not draw transition states. Why does this process occur? Or, in other words, what is the thermodynamic driving force for this reaction?
