Flashcards in Oxidation Lab Deck (19):
1

OA

Oxidizing Agent

2

Clorox

NaOCl

3

What was the oxidizing agent?

Clorox(NaOCl)

4

The clorox oxidized ___________?

Cyclohexanol into cyclohexanone

5

Exothermix reaction

Clorox+Cyclohexanol+acetic acid

6

Acetic Acid

AcOH

7

Reaction is Complete=

When mixture cools back down to room temperature

8

How do you check if you put enough oxidation agent?

Starch-KI paper
(KI potassium-iodide)

9

Positive Starch-KI paper test

Blue-black (means bleach(oxidizing agent) is present)

10

Negative Starch-KI paper test

Colorless (oxidizing agent is not present)

11

After tesring the OA making sure its colorless, started the distillation process.

Collected 1-2 mL of the distillate (Cloudy)

12

Distillate

Cyclohexanone + water

13

1.) After collecting distillate, we added TBME+ salt =

Separation into 2 layers + extract the organic layer

14

2.) Remove the TBME using

Compressed airf

15

3.) obtain the cyclohexanone by using

Vacuum filtration

16

C-O bond

1100

17

Alcohol O-H bond

3400


(Should not be in the results because some of the intial startig material ended up in the product)

18

Percent yield

Actual yield/Theoretical yield* 100%

19

Limiting reagent

Less of the reagents by moles
