Polar Reactions under Basic Conditions

  • Robert B. Grossman


Now that you have learned how to identify the mechanistic class of a particular reaction, you are ready to learn how to write the mechanism itself. This chapter is devoted to polar mechanisms that occur under basic conditions. Archetypical mechanisms will be presented and discussed so that you become familiar with the patterns of reactivity of organic compounds under basic conditions.
