actually supposed to be a alkyne (triple bond). A carbon was lost meaning that the product was reduced. We ended up with both cis and trans configurations of two benzene rings attached by a double bond, which is called stilbene. 4. Based on all four different types of spectra’s, the reaction did not go as planned and therefor did not reach completion. A reduced product was formed instead of the expected, which was 3-phenyl-1-propyne-benzene. There were also no starting materials that ended up in the product, however there were many new materials that were found (stated up above).

5. All three products that were indicated on the GC could possibly be carbon containing side products, since there was no actual product formed. However, the cis/trans alkene would technically be the main carbon containing side product since had the greatest amount. It also had reduced products that came along with it. The explanations for why this happened can’t fully be explained. Only guesses can be made; perhaps the ammonium and amides were poor acid choses because of their sterically unhindered structure. 6. The reaction mechanism that was attempted to be formed should have started with the removal of the bromide, leaving group, creating a positive charged cation. Then the ammonium acid comes in and deprotanating the phenylacetylene, creating a negative charge. Then the positive and negative charges of both the starting material join together to form the product. The mechanism of the reaction that was actually formed cannot be identified from the information obtained so far.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
