I. Abstract The purpose of this lab was to crack dicyclopentadiene into cyclopentadiene by dripping it into very hot mineral oil and collecting the product in an ice bath. The cyclopentadiene was then used and mixed with maleic anhydride and a mixture of solvents. This resulted in crystallization of the product. The mass of the cyclopentadiene collected in the rice receiver from the beginning part of the experiment was found to be 0.311g. After reacting with 0.206g of maleic anhydride, 0.112g of crystals were collected with a percent yield of 20%. mol 4.45 x 10 -3 8.90 x 10 -3 MW 132.20 66.10 g 0.588 1.176 ml 0.60 0.735 d 0.98 0.80 BP 170°C 41°C mol 2.42 x 10 -3 2.03 x 10 -3 2.03 x 10 -3 MW 66.10 98.06 164.16 g 0.160 0.20 0.333 ml 0.20 d 0.80 II. Introduction 1. What is a Diels-Alder reaction? A Diels- Alder reaction is a reaction between an electron rich diene and a electron poor dienophile. The force of the reaction is by the formation of two new sigma bonds

    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.
