Here is a question from my textbook:-
Q - Give the major product formed by the heating of the following ether with HI.
CH3 | CH3-CH2-CH-CH2-O-CH2-CH3
According to me, The product should be this due to Delocalisation of +ve charge among the neighbouring Carbon atoms.
CH3 | CH3-CH2-CH-CH2-I + CH3-CH2-OH
I checked the answer in my book and it is completely different:-
CH3 | CH3-CH2-CH-CH2-OH + CH3-CH2-I
Now, I think they may have considered Steric Hindrance to be the factor of attack of OH but will not Delocalisation be dominant over Steric Effect?
Also, What will be the effect of Hyperconjugation on the reaction? Please Guide Me.
