82.14g 1 mol cyclohexene mol cyclohexene Percent Yield: 0.197g x 100% = 3.9% 4.99g Discussion: In this lab, cyclohexene was converted to cyclohexanol. The purpose of the lab was to practice the method of preparation of an alcohol ( 1 ). Distillate was collected by setting up a steam distillation with cyclohexene. The distillate was saturated with sodium chloride and separated using ether. The extract was then dried with potassium carbonate, and filtered. The
