Flashcards in Oxidation Lab Deck (19):
What was the oxidizing agent?
The clorox oxidized ___________?
Cyclohexanol into cyclohexanone
Reaction is Complete=
When mixture cools back down to room temperature
How do you check if you put enough oxidation agent?
Positive Starch-KI paper test
Blue-black (means bleach(oxidizing agent) is present)
Negative Starch-KI paper test
Colorless (oxidizing agent is not present)
After tesring the OA making sure its colorless, started the distillation process.
Collected 1-2 mL of the distillate (Cloudy)
Cyclohexanone + water
1.) After collecting distillate, we added TBME+ salt =
Separation into 2 layers + extract the organic layer
2.) Remove the TBME using
3.) obtain the cyclohexanone by using
Alcohol O-H bond
(Should not be in the results because some of the intial startig material ended up in the product)
Actual yield/Theoretical yield* 100%
