Preparation of Cyclohexene From Cyclohexanol

Abstract: A 42.89% yield cyclohexene was successfully synthesized from 10.0 mL cyclohexanol by unimolecular elimination (E1) through the dehydration of cyclohexanol and confirmed via a bromine test and the IR spectra. Introduction: Alkenes are hydrocarbons that have carbon–carbon double bonds and are one of the many functional groups in organic molecules. Alkenes are sp2 hybridized and are unsaturated because two of their hydrogen’s are missing from the saturated alkane formula (CnH2n+2). Typically alkenes are synthesized by elimination reactions, however, organic molecules can also undergo substitution reactions amongst many other reactions like oxidation and reduction based on the structure of the organic molecule and the conditions under which the reaction is performed. These reactions are possible because the carbon atom in…
