In an abandoned laboratory has been found a flammable liquid, A, in a bottle bearing only the label
"Compound A: C7H12." Government agents have offered you a considerable sum to determine the structure of
this compound. After verifying the molecular formula by elemental analysis, you find that Compound A
reacts with 1 mol equiv of hydrogen and, after treatment with acidic KMnO4, gives the dicarboxylic acid C
(see below). Another bottle from the same laboratory is labeled "Compound B (isomer of A)." Compound B
also reacts with 1 mol equiv of hydrogen, but yields cyclohexanone after treatment with acidic KMnO4.
