Organic Chemistry Made Easy! | Mechanisms | Alcohols, Ring Opening/Closure - Advanced Problem (6)
Published at : 17 Dec 2020
Organic chemistry made easy! In this video, I discuss in great detail the mechanism involving the dehydration of a tertiary alcohol with a methyl shift. When students encounter this problem, I have heard comments such as "this is difficult; very hard." The reason this is considered a more challenging, thought-provoking mechanism is because it involves the conversion (formation) of a 6-membered ring into a 5-membered ring. Additionally, an extra methyl shift occurs. But not to worry, I take you step-by-step throughout this process! This is especially helpful for those students having free-response exams in this course!

I do have a speech-impediment so please forgive me if I stutter a bit in a few spots throughout the video. I try my best to not have that happen.
