Im having some problems with some oxidation and reduction mechanisms. Im not sure if I am doing them correctly.
1. O=C=O + CH3-MG++I-
2. Acetone + NH4+, Na+ H3BCN
The Attempt at a Solution
1. I break one of the bonds from the oxygen and protonate it to give me a carboxylic acid. Im not sure if I dehydrate it to form 2-propanol.
2. I don't really know where to start with this one. I think the NH4 adds a hydrogen to the oxygen, and then the carbon nitrile attacks and forces off the OH to form water, leaving Propane substituted with a CN group.
