Readings and Problem Set 3

Due Friday, February 9, 2001

For problems 1-5, the mechanism is complex. Suggest a potentially isolable ground state product that is may produced in a primary photochemical step and plausibly transformed into the indicated product under the reaction conditions (room temperature, inert solvent, possible secondary photolysis or thermal reaction). For problems 6-10, suggest side products expected.

New readings that will be helpful in doing the problem set: Chapter 11. Section 11.3
