  • Q:

    Given the molecule below, which of the following is TRUE regarding its ability (or inability) to undergo an acylation reaction?



     

    A

    The molecule will undergo an intramolecular acylation reaction between the wedged alcohol and the carboxylic acid

    B

    The molecule will undergo an intramolecular acylation reaction between the dashed alcohol and the carboxylic acid

    C

    The molecule will NOT undergo an intramolecular acylation reaction because the double bond does not allow for the interaction between the alcohols and the carboxylic acid

    D

    The molecule will NOT undergo an intramolecular acylation reaction because acylation reactions cannot occur with carboxylic acids.
