Alkoxymercuration Demercuration Reduction of Alkenes

Alkoxymercuration-Demercuration Reduction is a tricky mechanism for organic chemistry students. Not because it’s any more difficult than oxymercuration, but simply because students tend to overlook the alcohol reagent and miss the alkyl group in the product. The video below helps you understand the similarities and differences between oxymercuration and alkoxymercuration of alkenes. The video also […]
