Although a number of you got at least TLC and/or IR data of the oxidation reaction product(s), there were only a handful of students who got the 2,4-DNP derivative from their own ketone products. We will not be grading the reports based on the fact if you got the expected ketone, etc. So, if you don't get much or any ketone product, speculate as to what the source(s) of problem may be. Those who got clear two layers of distillate upon steam distillation and yet did not get much was in the final vial or flask after the evaporation of ether may have a good case of chasing off the oxidation product together with ether, especially if you had 2-octanol as the starting alcohol. Also, it seems quite important that you did not make the reaction mixture that much basic. There may be a few potential side reactions of those ketone products under
