1. Explain why we get a different product when we use bulky bases compared to small bases.
2. If we start with 25.0 mL of 0.100 M sodium methoxide and 25.0 g of 2-bromobutane, what will be the theoretical yield of your product? (Use dimensional analysis/ Do not break up your steps/ Read the beginning of your lab to guide you on how to do this problem).
3. How can one determine which peak represents the Hoffman product and which represents the Zaitsev product?
5. Write the reaction mechanism for the reaction of sodium methoxide with 2-bromobutane.
