Hello, I am ready to throw my book across the room and I am wondering if anyone can help. The problem is as follows: Since I cant draw the molecule I wil name it. 3,3 dimethyl-5-phenyl pentene. Gets H+/H2o added to it to give the folllowing product. 3,4-dimethyl-1-phenyl-2 pentanol. The question asks me to suggest a mechanisim for the reaction and explain why it occurs. I know that there is a methyl and an hydride shift, at least I think so... but I can't figure out why the OH group is being added to a lower substitued carbon. Can anyone help? Thanks!
