Sabinene and Δ3-carene are isomeric natural products with the molecular formula C10H16. (b) Ozonolysis of Δ3-carene gives compound B. What is the structure of Δ 3-carene?
Sabinene and Δ3-carene are isomeric natural products with the molecular formula C10H16. (a) Ozonolysis of sabinene followed by hydrolysis in the presence of zinc gives compound A. What is the structure of sabinene? What other compound is formed on ozonolysis?
East Indian sandalwood oil contains a hydrocarbon given the name santene (C9H14). Ozonolysis of santene gives compound A. What is the structure of santene?
Compound A (C7H13Br) is a tertiary bromide. On treatment with sodium ethoxide in ethanol, A is converted into B (C7H12). Ozonolysis of B gives C as the only product. Deduce the structures of A and B. What is the symbol for the reaction mechanism by which A is converted to B under the reaction conditions?
Dehydration of 2,2,3,4,4-pentamethyl-3-pentanol gave two alkenes A and B. Ozonolysis of the lower boiling alkene A gave formaldehyde (H2C=O) and 2,2,4,4-tetramethyl-3-pentanone. Ozonolysis of B gave formaldehyde and 3,3,4,4-tetramethyl-2-pentanone. Identify A and B, and suggest an explanation for the formation of B in the dehydration reaction.
