In thisparticular reaction, the ketone 4-tert-butylcyclohexanone was reduced with sodium borohydridein order to create the corresponding alcohols, cis- and trans-4-tert-butylcyclohexanol. Thin-layerchromatography was also used to analyze the products as well as compare the reactant ketonewith the crude product formed. Cis- and trans- diastereomers were both produced in thisexperiment, though they were not purified from one another. P-anisaldehyde stain was used inthe thin-layer chromatography for visualization of the reactant and product.Experimental Procedure:The procedure was followed as described in Mayo’s manual on pages
