Caution: The steps as depicted below may differ slightly from how you should normally draw them for examination purposes.

  • Not all steps may be implemented and some steps may be skipped (e.g., radical initiation / termination).
  • Not all steps may be necessary to produce the final products (e.g., reversible acid catalysis or parallel mechanisms).
  • Stereochemistry is ignored for the purposes of mechanism diagrams.
