Question: Draw all stereoisomers formed when 1,2-dimethylcyclohexene is treated with HCl. Label pairs of enantiomers.
All the stereoisomers are shown hereunder.
The pi-electron density attacks the acidic hydrogen from the HX molecule, leading to the cleavage of pi-bond and the formation of a carbocation.
Enantiomers are mirror images of a compound that are not superimposable on each other.
Diastereomers are not mirror images of any compound.
The reactions of all the stereoisomers of 1,2-dimethylcyclohexene with HCl are shown hereunder.
