  • Creating A Ketone Through An Oxidation Reaction Using A Secondary Alcohol And Oxidizing Agent

    894 Words  | 4 Pages

    using a secondary alcohol and oxidizing agent in order to use that ketone in a reduction reaction with a specific reducing agent to determine the affect of that reducing agent on the diastereoselectivity of the product. In the first part of this experiment, 4-tert-butylcyclohexanol was reacted with NaOCl, an oxidizing agent, and acetic acid to form 4-tert-butylcyclohexanone. In the second part of this experiment, 4-tert-butylcyclohexanone was reacted with a reducing agent, either NaBH4 in EtOH or Al(OiPr)3

    Oxidation of 2-Octanol Oxidation of 2-Octanol Using Hypochlorite as an Oxidizing Agent Jessica Johnson CHEM 331L-002 15 November 2017 – 29 November 2017 Abstract The purpose of the experiment is to oxidize a secondary alcohol (2-octanol) by using sodium hypochlorite (bleach) to produce 2-octanone. The starting material consisted of a sample of 2-octanol that was placed into a three-neck flask along with acetic acid and acetone creating an acidic solution. While monitoring temperature fluctuations

  • Oxidation of Cyclohexanone to Adipic Acid Essay

    April Goodson CHEM 242L-002 February 20, 2013 Oxidation of Cyclohexanone to Adipic Acid Abstract The cyclic ketone cyclohexanone was oxidized to adipic acid using the oxidizing agent nitric acid. The experiment yielded 0.2667 grams of adipic acid, giving a percent yield of 113.97%. Although the product was allowed to dry for one week, residual moisture was still present in the sample and a melting point could not be obtained. This error in the experiment either resulted from adding too much

    observed for its ability to serve as a counterion for precipitation by preparing a copper (II) complex by reacting hydrated copper (II) sulfate with ammonium peroxodisulfate in the presence of pyridine. This same ability, coupled with its strong oxidizing ability allowed for stabilization of the unusual oxidation state of 2+ for silver which was observed by preparing an analogous silver (II) complex by reacting silver (I) nitrate with ammonium peroxodisulfate in the presence of pyridine. IR spectra

  • Multistep Synthesis of Benzilic Acid

    2109 Words  | 9 Pages

    Multi-Step Synthesis of Benzilic Acid from Benzoin Abstract: The main purpose of this experiment was to convert a secondary alcohol to a ketone, utilizing a mild and selective oxidizing agent. In addition, this converted alpha diketone was then subjected to rearrangement to a carboxylate salt, then acidification, to produce an alpha-hydroxyacid. In this experiment, benzoin was used and converted into benzil, which was then used to synthesize benzillic acid. The yields were not ideal: .081g of benzil-
