Dong Hyun Suh Mr. Erdei CHE2204 Febrary 23, 2009 Results/Conclusion: Through the calculations, it can be found that 95% yield from 4-tert- butylcyclohexanone to 4-tert-butylcyclohexanol through the process of reduction. The high yield proves that the experiment was done properly. When examining the IR on page 141-142, we can see the strong band of ketone at about 1650 for the 4-tert-butylcyclohexanone, and in the following
