The following synthetic conversion can be obtained through addition of KOH with heat and then Halohydrins mechanism.
Work Step by Step
The reaction of KOH in presence of heat gives a double bond. Then on this double bond the halohydrin mechanism is performed. The mechanism that gives this product is the addition of Halohydrins: 1) Electrophilic attack forms a chloronium ion. 2) Back-side attack by water on the most substituted carbon opens the chloronium ion. 3) Water removes a proton to give the chlorohydrin.
