I attempted some of this but I am clueless as to some of the other stuff. Can you help?
Maybe you can help me with this one. Are the C3 atoms more acidic because there is more s character involved with the atoms and as the s character increases, the bond length decreases and the carbon becomes more electronegative which ultimately leads to more acidic qualities.
3) Dehydrohalogenation of 1,2-dihalides (with the elimination of two molar equivalents of HX) normally leads to an alkyne rather than to a conjugated diene. However, when 1,2 dibromocyclohexane is dehydrohalogenated, 1,3-cyclohexadiene is produced in good yield. What factor accounts for this?
Well I drew the structures out and I am clueless. I tried researching this scenario on the internet and couldn't find anything that helped.
