Q#3 Prepare Cyclopenttyl methyl ether from cyclopentanol? Q4 Predict the product(s) of the following reaction:


Expert Answer

Step 1

The given product is an ether and Williamson’s ether synthesis is an effective method for the preparation of ethers. This method can be simply referred as a SN2 reaction between an alkoxide and an alkyl halide.

Step 2

The starting material has to be cyclopentanol. For the preparation of alkoxide, cyclopentanol has to be reacted with sodium.

Step 3

The formed alkoxide reacts with methyl brom...
