CH2 = CH-CH-OH with CH3 under the second CH


CH3-CH-CH2-C (double bond O off C and -OH off C) also a CH3 under CH

i) complete the equation for this reaction
ii) Indentify any new functional groups in the organic product(s)name them

iii)State the type of reaction that has occured and explain how you arrived at the answer

A CH3 under the second CH from the left (or right) puts too many bonds on the carbon atom. Do you intend for the CH3 group to be attached to the C with the OH?
Look up uester formation. That is the reaction that will take place. Acids (RCOOH) plus alchols (R'OH) gives esters
