Alkene Dihydroxylationanti-addition
Replace a OH with a ClPrimary Only
Alkene Ozonolysis
Alcohol into Grignard
Radical Halogenation
AlkylationAttachment of an R group to a terminal alkyne
Alkene addition of OH groupMarkovnikov, no carbocation rearrangement
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeDoes not reduce carboxylic acid or esters. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
Halogenationanti-addition, use one equivalent per pi bond that you want broken
Alkene Dihydroxylationsyn addition
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeReduces carboxylic acid and esters. Does not leave other pi bonds alone.
