I'm having trouble with this problem. I do not see how any of the options could produce the given products on ozonolysis.
- We're performing reductive ozonolysis, so products should be either aldehydes or ketones, but there are carboxylic acids in the products too.
- To form the first given product, there needs to be a double bond 3 carbons away from the triple bond, only option a) satisfies this but it has a double bond in between which will also ozonolyse. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? The answer given in the key is a)
