Oxymercuration & Demercuration of Alkenes

Hey pals! Here is a simple poster we prepared to help you remember the reactions of oxymercuration & demercuration of alkenes which is a bit hard to remember. Somewhat similar to hydroboration reaction, here first, Hg(OAc)2 & H2O are added forming a alkylmercuric acetate intermediate. Then plucking off the mercuric part is done by NaBH4. …
