Tutorial on the formation and reactivity of sulfonate esters (e.g., tosylates, mesylates).
Tutorial covering the alkene hydroboration/oxidation reaction, which converts an alkene into an alcohol with anti-Markovnikov regioselectivity and syn stereoselectivity.
Tutorial on the E1 (unimolecular elimination) alcohol dehydration reaction and mechanism, which converts alcohols into alkenes.
Tutorial covering the acid-catalysed hydration of alkenes, an electrophilic addition reaction forming alcohols. The mechanism is also covered, discussing the Markovnikov rule and the regioselectivity.
