We can say that 1.896 g of cyclohexanol should produce 1.55 g of cyclohexene in ideal  conditions, which will consider as theoretical yield. Percent Yield . The theoretical yield is what would be obtained in an ideal world, if every  molecule of cyclohexanol were converted to a molecule of cyclohexene. The percent yield is the  percentage of the theoretical yield that you actually obtain after isolating product at the end of  the procedure.  As the product obtained after distillation is 1.5367g which will be the actual yield. Using the  formula:  percent yield = (actual yield (g)/ theoretical yield (g) x 100 %                        = (1.5367 g / 1.55g) x 100                          = 99%  Chemical tests to distinguish alkenes from alkanes:  Three tests were performed to differentiate alkene and alkanes 1.Bromine in dichloromethane  2.bromine in water 3.potassium permanganate acidic solution Colour change was observed, and reaction schemes are completed in attached data sheet.

    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.
