(20.54/99.42) * 100% = 20.7% Product C: (72.07/99.42) * 100% = 73% Product D: (4.87/99.42) * 100% = 4.9% Percent Recovery: (2.257g/3.000g) * 100% = 75.2% Discussion: In this lab, 2-methylcyclohexanol was heated with 85% phosphoric acid to produce a mixture of four different products. The purpose of this lab was to identify relative amounts of the four alkenes in the product using gas chromatography ( 1 ). First, 1 mL of 85% phosphoric acid was added to 2-methylcyclohexanol and swirled in a boiling flask. The mixture was extracted using a steam distillation. The distillate was then poured into a separatory funnel to be extracted then dried with calcium chloride. A dropped of distillate
