The reduction of synthdsis by hydrogen gas with a platinum catalyst produces cyclohexanol in good yield. The generality of the process has been demonstrated by using various combinations of reactants and reagents. The alkyl groups can be any combination of same or different.
This reduction requires a very strong reducing agent, and synthessi aluminum hydride is the standard choice. So once again, if you mix those two together in ether and then protonate it, you will end up with the alcohol on the left. And then, we are done with our product. The alkyl groups can be any combination of same or different. Views Read Latest draft Edit View history.This video discusses the reaction mechanism between grignard reagent and alcohols. During the example of how to create a secondary alcohol using an aldehyde, a methyl group is added, but at. The image above shows the synthesis of an alcohol from formaldehyde reacted with a Grignard reagent. When a formaldehyde is the target of the Grignard's.
