Question:

Draw out the structure of the final product of the following reaction:

reaction

1,4-Addition Reaction:

Let us assume that a nucleophile is treated with {eq}\alpha, \beta {/eq} unsaturated carbonyl compound. If the attack of the nucleophile occurs at the {eq}\alpha {/eq} carbon atom of the {eq}\alpha, \beta {/eq} unsaturated carbonyl compound then the reaction is said to be a 1,4-addition reaction.

Answer and Explanation:

The mechanism of the reaction and the structure of the product is shown below
