The question is: What is the product of the reaction of 2Hexene with CHCl3 in the presence of potassium tertbutoxide?
I chose B:
I thought Potassium tertbut oxide is more likely to act as a base. I thought that it pulls the proton off of CHCl3, because the chlorine groups could hold the stabilize the negative charge, and then CHCl3 adds to the double bond. But this idea is wrong..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm thinking it is B as well but I'm not 100% sure but I know it's not A because that would be the reaction of Cl2 instead of CHCl3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3its similar to that, CHCl3 gets deprotonated by tbutoxide, then the carbanion attacks the double bond and pushes the electrons to carbon 3, then that carbanion attacks intramolecualry

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Reacting with CHCl3 and a base makes a cyclo.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@aaronq okay I see it now, the carbanion attacks the other carbon and removes the chlorine and then creates the cyclic structure.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@JoannaBlackwelder to me I always have in my mind that three ring structures are unstable especially if they have large groups attached to them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0especially with those chlorines that's why i didn't consider that one at first
