Experiment 4: Synthesis of Cyclohexene General Reaction R R R R OH H 3 PO 4 (conc.) R R R R heat + H 2 O or H 2 SO 4 (conc.) The reaction proceeds by an E 1 mechanism where the rate of the reaction is determined by the formation of the carbocation. Formation of Cyclohexene from Cyclohexanol + H 2 O OH heat H 3 PO 4 (conc.) Mechanism: cyclohexyl dihydrogen phosphate - OP(OH) 2 O dicyclohexyl ether O O H HO OP(OH) 2 O - OP(OH) 2 O - OP(OH) 2 O H OH 2 H OH 2 OH By Products The major product is determined by using Zaitsev’s rule that states the more substituted the alkene the more stable it is. 24

Unformatted text preview: liquid that is being boiled. 5) Collecting flask should be large enough to hold the liquid being boiled over. 6) Do not distill to dryness. 7) Do not force glassware, especially thermometers. Grease all glass joints.
