How would you synthesize each of the following?
a. 1,2-dibromopropane from propene
b. acetone (2-propanone) from an alcohol
c. tert-butyl alcohol (2 methyl-2-propanol)from an alkene
d. propanoic acid from an alcohol
How would you synthesize the following esters?
the double bond of oxygen is suppose to be over the carbon 3rd to last.
a. Can't you simply add Br2 to the double bond.?
b. Oxidation of a secondary alcohol yields a ketone.
R2CHOH + K2Cr2O7==> R2C=O
c. Alkene + HOH to the double bond with 63% H2SO4. Start with Isobutylene [2-methyl butene (I think I named that right)] and treat with 63% H2SO4 to yield tert-butyl hydrogen sulfate, add water and heat to form the tert-butyl alcohol.
d. Oxidation of a primary alcohol with permanganate produces the acid.
RCH2OH + KMnO4==> RCOOH
Esters are made by adding and acid to an alcohol. Acetic acid + n-octyl alcohol yields the n-octylacetate.
I can't tell where the ester is but add an acid to an alcohol.
I hope this helpsl a little. Check my thinking.
