28. 1,2-Ethanediol exists to a much greater extent in the gauche conformation than does 1,2-
dichloroethane. Explain. Would you expect the gauche: anti conformational ratio of 2-chloroethanol 
to be similar to that of 1,2-dichloroethane or more like that of 1,2-ethanediol?
29. The most stable conformation of trans-1,2-cyclohexanediol is the chair in which both hydroxy 
groups are equatorial. (a) Draw the structure or, better yet, make a model of the compound in 
this conformation. (b) Reaction of this diol with the chlorosilane R3SiCl, R 5 (CH3)2CH (iso-
propyl), gives the corresponding disilyl ether shown in the margin. Remarkably, this transforma-
tion causes the chair to fl ip, giving a conformation where both silyl ether groups are in axial 
positions. Explain this observation by means of either structural drawings or models.

41. The common practice of washing laboratory glassware with acetone can lead to unintended con-
sequences. For example, a student plans to carry out the preparation of methylmagnesium iodide, 
CH3MgI, which he will add to benzaldehyde, C6H5CHO. What compound is he intending to 
synthesize after aqueous work-up? Using his freshly washed glassware, he carries out the proce-
dure and fi nds that he has produced an unexpected tertiary alcohol as a product. What substance 
did he make? How did it form?

49. Unlike Grignard and organolithium reagents, organometallic compounds of the most 
electropositive metals (Na, K, etc.) react rapidly with haloalkanes. As a result, attempts to convert 
RX into RNa or RK by reaction with the corresponding metal lead to alkanes by a reaction called 
Wurtz coupling.
2 RX 1 2 Na uy ROR 1 2 NaX
which is the result of
ROX 1 2 Na uy RONa 1 NaX
followed rapidly by
RONa 1 ROX uy ROR 1 NaX
 When it was still in use, the Wurtz coupling reaction was employed mainly for the preparation 
of alkanes by the coupling of two identical alkyl groups (e.g., equation 1 below). Suggest a

reason why Wurtz coupling might not be a useful method for coupling two different alkyl groups 
(equation 2).
