Regioselective Hydration of an Alkene and Analysis of the Alcohol Product by Remote Access NMR: A Classroom Demonstration
Smith, Maureen E.; Johnson, Sara L.; Masterson, Douglas S.
Journal of Chemical Education, v90 n1 p99-101 Jan 2013
A two-part demonstration was conducted in our first-semester organic chemistry course designed to introduce students to the formation of alcohols, regioselective reactions, and analysis of organic products by NMR analysis. This demonstration utilized the oxymercuration-demercuration sequence to prepare an alcohol from an alkene in a Markovnikov manner because the reaction is easy to execute and has a dramatic, observable color change during the transformation. The alcohol product produced was then utilized in a classroom demonstration of 1H NMR using a remote accessible NMR spectrometer. (Contains 1 scheme.)
