What type of reaction would this be and what would the product be?

The way I've thought about this is the following: Acetone is a polar a protic solvent, and Iodine is I would guess this is a strong nucleophile since it's polarizable. now the solvent doesn't interfere with our reaction. the nucleophile attacks the carbon with the tosylate group, dumping it's electrons onto the oxygen and we get tso- |dw:1446398307006:dw| I'm assuming that the tosylate group can stabilize the negative charge hence a good leaving group. This reaction would probably follow SN2 kinetics and we would get inversion of stereochemistry. one of the chiral centers. |dw:1446398463267:dw|
