  • Hi Katie! Can you provide more details of this question? Reyn commented about 3 years ago
  • It is about to draw a reaction coordinate for the reaction of (R)-3-methylpent-1-ene and HCl. I am wondering which one has lower energy level? Katie commented about 3 years ago
  • Hey Katie! Not sure why you were asking for that since this reaction is hydrohalogenation that will follow the Markovnikov product, specifically (3R)-2-chloro-3-methylpentane. Reyn commented about 3 years ago
