I have no Idea but is it the A?
I'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
@taramgrant0543664 That's exactly what i thought
but for whatever reason it's wrong
Do you know which one is right?
im pretty sure its D
D was my next thought but I can't picture how that reaction would go
@aaronq @taramgrant0543664 D is correct
but I can't see how it would go..
its similar to that, CHCl3 gets deprotonated by t-butoxide, then the carbanion attacks the double bond and pushes the electrons to carbon 3, then that carbanion attacks intramolecualry
Reacting with CHCl3 and a base makes a cyclo.
@aaronq okay I see it now, the carbanion attacks the other carbon and removes the chlorine and then creates the cyclic structure.
@JoannaBlackwelder to me I always have in my mind that three ring structures are unstable especially if they have large groups attached to them
especially with those chlorines that's why i didn't consider that one at first
