How do you draw the structure of the reaction of 1-hexene with h2o in the presence of acid

  • organic chemistry -

    If you mean the acid is a catalyst, then the major product will be 2-hexanol, because Markownikoff's Rule predicts the -OH group will go to the carbon atom with
    fewer H atoms (#2 carbon in this case) and the H group goes to the C atom
    with more hydrogens (#1 in this case).
