2013 Final Exam Question 5C

Postby Victoria Lee 2C » Fri Mar 11, 2016 10:46 pm

For the last part of the question regarding the transition state of NH attaching to 2nd molecule and OH leaving the molecule 2nd molecule, how do we know that the geometry of the TS is trigonal bipyramidal? Is the geometry determined with respect to where the two molecules are attaching?

Yes it is somewhat similar to the example that Professor Lavelle did during the organic chemistry review session on Wednesday.
