Bromine can be added to limonene to create a brominated compound.
When 613 mg of limonene and
3.5 mL of a 10% (v/v) solution of Br2 in dichloromethane (a solvent) are
combined, 959 mg of the product is isolated. Calculate the percent yield
for this reaction.

If the limonene reactant is composed of a single enantiomer, would you expect the product to be a single enantiomer or
racemic? Explain.

• Chemistry -

.... try :
.613g/136.23g/mol=.004999mol

.959g/296.04g/mol=.003239mol

Divide:
.003239/.004999 then *100% = Percent yield

=72% yield?
