# Tert-Butane Reaction Scheme

Chemistry Level 3

In the reaction scheme of $$\text{t-butane}$$ shown above, $$\text{t-butane}$$ is first reacted with $$\text{Br}_2$$ in light, followed by a treatment with $$\text{t-butoxide}$$. The major product is then mixed with $$\text{osmium tetroxide}$$, and then added to a solution of $$\text{sodium periodate}$$.

Give your answer as the total number of $$\text{hydrogens}$$, $$\text{oxygens}$$, and $$\text{carbons}$$ in the final major product(s) of this reaction scheme.
