ProcessReagentExtra Info
Alkyne into trans-Alkene
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeDoes not reduce carboxylic acid or esters. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
Replace a OH with a ClPrimary Only
Halogenationanti-addition, use one equivalent per pi bond that you want broken
Alkene Halohydrin Formationanti-addition
Attaching an R group to an Ester
Alkene addition of OH groupMarkovnikov, allows carbocation rearrangement
Attaching an R group to a Ketone/Aldehyde
Alkyne into Ketone
Hydrogenation
Alkene Dihydroxylationanti-addition
Replace a OH with a BrPrimary and Secondary
Alkene addition of OH groupMarkovnikov, no carbocation rearrangement
Converts OH into a Good Leaving Group
Hydrohalogenationanti-Markovnikov
Secondary Alcohol into a Ketone
Radical Halogenation
Primary Alcohol into Carboxylic Acid
