Section 4.2 Organic Chemistry Textbook

Postby keyanabogan 2J » Mon Mar 06, 2017 9:00 pm

In section 4.2, the example given shows in step 1 that the propene results in propan-2-ylium as reactants and it has the hyrdrogen atom attached to the CH2 molecule. Does the H have to be attached to the CH2 on the outside or can it just be attached to the CH in the chemical reaction?

The hydrogen can't go to the middle one because the bromide needs to go to the carbon in the middle in order for the product to have less dipole moment.
