AlkylationAttachment of an R group to a terminal alkyne
Alkene Ozonolysis
Secondary Alcohol into a Ketone
Alkene Halohydrin Formationanti-addition
Radical Halogenation
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeReduces carboxylic acid and esters. Only one Oxygen atom involved. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
Alcohol into Grignard
Replace a OH with a ClPrimary and Secondary
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeDoes not reduce carboxylic acid or esters. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
Hydrohalogenationanti-Markovnikov
Attaching an R group to a Ketone/Aldehyde
Alkene Dihydroxylationanti-addition
Halogenationanti-addition, use one equivalent per pi bond that you want broken
