Synthesis of Cyclohexene The Dehydration of Cyclohexanol. The general approach towards carrying out an organic reaction: (1) Write out the balanced reaction, using structural formulas. ... Mechanism. 2 The first step in the mechanism is protonation of the alcohol group by the acid (slightly exothermic).
In this lesson, we will focus on the dehydration reaction that cyclohexanol undergoes under acidic conditions to produce cyclohexene, a useful building block in organic chemistry.
1. Outline mechanism for the dehydration of 1-methyl-1-cyclohexanol. 2. What is the major disadvantage of using concentrated sulfuric acid (or hydrochloric acid) rather than 85% phosphoric acid for the dehydration of alcohols? 3. Why is the receiving flask supposed to be kept on ice during the preparation of cyclohexene? 3.
This video shows you how to convert cyclohexanol into cyclohexene using phosphoric acid as the acid catalyst. The mechanism for this E1 acid catalyzed dehydration reaction is also provided.
Synthesis of Cyclohexene from Cyclohexanol by Acid Catalyzed ( E1) Elimination. Goal This experiment is designed to demonstrate a simple method for forming an alkene from a secondary alcohol by means of acid-catalyzed dehydration. Specifically, cyclohexanol is heated in the presence of concentrated phosphoric acid to cause an E1 elimination reaction.
