Draw the Major organic product of each reaction. Indicate the stereochemistry at the stereogenic center. Omit byproducts such as salts. If applicable, expand octets to minimize formal charges.
SN2 reactions of alcohols:
The conversion of an alcohol to an alkyl chloride via the reaction with thionyl chloride proceeds through an SN2 mechanism. If the hydroxyl group of the alcohol is bonded to a chiral carbon, this reaction results in inversion of configuration.
Answer and Explanation:
The products of the reactions are given below:
The reaction between TsCl and alcohol forms a tosylate ester with the same configuration as the...
