Dehydration of alcohols related questions

  • 1Dehydration of Alcohols

    If the reaction were to be carried out with concentrated HClinstead of concentrated H3PO4 with acatalytic amount of sulfuric acid, a mixture oftwo products wouldbe formed. After the two products were separated, one product wouldgive a positive test for unsaturation and the other product wouldgive a negativetest for unsaturation. What would be the identitiesof the two products.The original reaction was cyclohexanol + Phosphoric acid -->cyclohexene + water.I know a positive saturation test means there is a double bond inthe product and a negative saturation test means there is no doublebond in the product. I'm just notcertain about the productshere.Cyclohexanol + HCl ----------> ?

    When cyclohexene is prepared from cyclohexanol, Why is theformation of substitution products involving displacement of waterby attack of bisulfate upon a protonatedalcohol not a reaction ofconcern in the elimination reaction?

    I did a dehydration rxn with 1.424g of 4-methylcyclohexanol with .40ml 85% H3PO4 and 6 drops of concentrated H2SO4. I have to calculate the limiting reagent even though I do suspect it to be the 4-methylcyclohexanol. I do know the ratio is 1mol H3PO4: 3mol 4-methylcyclohexanol. However even though I have the weight of my 4-methylcyclohexanol I have the ml of my H3PO4 I added. .40ml 85% H3PO4 I was wondering how do I calculate how many moles I have of it. Can I just use the density to convert it or not? I was wondering that since it isn't full strength but 85% H3PO4. Would that affect the calculations? Thank You

    Draw the mechanism for the dehydration of 3-pentanol into 2-pentene. The mechanism should include structures for both the starting material and the product. Show the movement of electrons in each step. Remember that the reaction is catalyzed by a stong acid like H2SO4.
