Alkenes from Alcohols Lab
This experiment is conducted using a secondary alcohol (2-methyl-2-butanol) will be
dehydrated using a dilute sulfuric acid. The mechanism of this reaction involves an intermediate
formation of a relatively stable t
IR Spec Report
1) Alcohol 3550-3250: Spectrum E
a. Spectrum E is my choice for the matching of the IR because of the wide strong curve
2) Monosubstituted Aromatic with an Ester 1600 & 1500: Spectrum C
Ochem Mass Spectrometry Lab Report
1) Compound 1 is matched with Spectrum A
a. The reasoning behind this match is the NH3+ fragment found at 18 amu and the NH3
radical cleaved away leaving C3N+ at 49 amu.
2) Compound 2 is matche
