Consider the compounds 4-tert-butylcyclohexanol and 4-tert-butylcyclohexanone. Using silica gel plates, which of the two compounds will have the higher Rf value when ethyl acetate is the developing solvent? Which will have the higher Rf value when dichloromethane is the developing solvent? Give reasoning for each case.

How do I go about figuring this out? Should I pay attention to the polarity of each compound?
