Pre-Lab Intro We will perform witting reaction. Especially, we will synthesize 1,4-diphenyl-1,3- butadiene from cinnamaldehyde and benzyltriphenyl-phosphonium chloride. Also, we will use commercial benzyltrophenylphosphonium chloride instead of synthesizing it ourselves. After doing reaction, we will run the TLC plate using UV light. Also, we will submit the trans, trans isomer for NMR and measure the IR and UV spectrum.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
