  1. In an example where the two alcohols are bound to carbon atoms with differing substitutions, the more substituted alcohol will attack. This must be due to electron density differences within the molecule correct? The more substituted alcohol is made more negative in being bound to a carbon that is less negative?

  2. At first I was so upset. Ur site was a go to site for any problem. But then I realised you too deserve Ur pay for the hardwork that you do to maintain your site. And hence you put most things under a specific amount. Nonetheless I have been a regular visitor to your site since my many study years and only recently did I notice the access fee which I am currently unable to work out. But I wish you all the very best and greatest of greatest success. God bless you more and more sir.❤
