ProcessReagentExtra Info
Alkyne into Aldehyde
Replace a OH with a BrPrimary and Secondary
Halogenationanti-addition, use one equivalent per pi bond that you want broken
Alkene Dihydroxylationsyn addition
Primary Alcohol into a Aldehyde
Name of a protected Alcohol
EliminationHofmann
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeDoes not reduce carboxylic acid or esters. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
Hydrohalogenationanti-Markovnikov
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeReduces carboxylic acid and esters. Only one Oxygen atom involved. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
AlkylationAttachment of an R group to a terminal alkyne
HydrohalogenationMarkovnikov, use one equivalent per pi bond that you want broken
Converts OH into a Good Leaving Group
Replace a OH with a ClPrimary and Secondary
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeReduces carboxylic acid and esters. Multiple Oxygen atoms involved. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
Alkyne into trans-Alkene
Radical Halogenation
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeReduces carboxylic acid and esters. Does not leave other pi bonds alone.
