3. Our analysis shows us that this was an E1 reaction mechanism because there are two products in
the results. If there was only one product we would know that the reaction mechanism was E2.

1. The two components separated extremely well. We tested 23 fractions, and of those 23
fractions, 18 were found to contain our unknown. None of them were mixed.
2. The percent recovery for each component was very high. Part of this is because we had a ve
