What product will result from this reaction?

C-O=S-C + Cl-Mg-C-C-C ---> ?

The molecule with S in it, has the O doubled bonded to the S with two carbons also bonded to the S. I guess I'm just having trouble seeing how a a product will result.

go to the Wikipedia page for "grignard reaction"... seems pretty helpful. It has to do with a six-membered ring transition state, which may be confusing to vidualize and mat leave you wondering how the end products just appearee. The purpose of the reaction is basically to alkylate ketone or aldehyde groups

I think that the product would be:

OH
I
H3C-S-CH2-CH2-CH3
I
CH3

sorry the format got messed up but S would have 4 bonds coming out of it with one being an alcohol (OH) 2 are CH3 and one is the CH2CH2CH3
 
OP
C
