Using Ozone in Organic Chemistry Lab: The Ozonolysis of Eugenol
Branan, Bruce M.; Butcher, Joshua T.; Olsen, Lawrence R.
Journal of Chemical Education, v84 n12 p1979-1981 Dec 2007
An ozonolysis experiment, suitable for undergraduate organic chemistry lab, is presented. Ozonolysis of eugenol (clove oil), followed by reductive workup furnishes an aldehyde that is easily identified by its NMR and IR spectra. Ozone (3-5% in oxygen) is produced using an easily built generator. (Contains 2 figures and 1 scheme.)
