A Discovery-Based Hydrochlorination of Carvone Utilizing a Guided-Inquiry Approach to Determine the Product Structure from [superscript 13]C NMR Spectra
Pelter, Michael W.; Walker, Natalie M.
Journal of Chemical Education, v89 n9 p1183-1185 Sep 2012
This experiment describes a discovery-based method for the regio- and stereoselective hydrochlorination of carvone, appropriate for a 3-h second-semester organic chemistry laboratory. The product is identified through interpretation of the [superscript 13]C NMR and DEPT spectra are obtained on an Anasazi EFT-60 at 15 MHz as neat samples. A guided-inquiry approach is used to aid the students with the interpretation of the NMR spectra. (Contains 1 scheme.)
