Problem Set-4: Making and Breaking C-C Bonds

PROBLEM SET 4

Making and Breaking C-C Bonds

Making and/or breaking carbon-carbon bonds occurs in every metabolic pathway. The reactions we considered in Problem Set 2 are involved, but there are some special problems that we need to consider.
We can generalize the making and breaking carbon-carbon bonds as follows:

Try to solve the following problems. In problem 5, try to devise a generic coenzyme that will catalyze this reaction. When you have written out all your answers, read Chapter 4 to check your answers.
