Instead of using 1-propanol or 2-pentanol, a student decided to conduct
the same reaction (using Sodium Bromide and Sulfuric Acid) you did starting with 2,4-dimethyl-3-pentanol instead. What
product(s) would you predict for this reaction? Show a mechanism to
account for any products you propose.

How do I do this?

    And my question is the same as the last time you posted. How are we do know what experiment yo did?

    I think she's talking about a substitution reaction dealing with the synthesis of alkly halides from alchohols. I have the same question.
