Organic Chemistry Lab Experiment title: Dihydroxylation of cyclohexane Introduction/Purpose of experiment: While there are many ways to form cyclohexane- 1,2-diol from cyclohexane, the best way is to use oxone to make the diol. Oxone is a persulfate mix (meaning that it is a compound with more oxygen than normal sulfates) that reacts with acetone to produce dimethyldioxirane. Therefore, the dimethyldioxirane will react with cyclohexane to form cyclohexane 1,2 –diol. The purpose/objectives of the experiment were to synthesize the diol, and to determine if it is a cis- or trans-diol. Outline of Experiment: We worked in microscale and while we did not collect a cyclohexane 1,2-diol product, we applied the principles of thin layer chromatography (TLC). Main reaction/equation: Reagents: Reagent Amount Oxone .40g Water 2mL Cyclohexane 2 drops (or .100 mL) Acetone 2mL HCl .1mL Cis diol (a) 5mg Trans diol (b) 5mg Mix of cis/trans (c) 10 drops each Oxone reaction mix (d) Ethyl acetate 10 mL Data table:
