Reactions of Aldehydes and Ketones
Organic chemical reactions generally have three components: Reactants, Reagents & Products.
In this problem we shall consider three isomeric carbonyl reactants:
| 3-methyl-2-butanone ||
These compounds may be reacted with six different reagents:
|Jones' reagent |
CrO3 in H3O(+)
in ether, followed by H3O(+)
|| excess C2H5OH |
Acid catalyst, heat (–H2O)
| NaBH4 |
|| (CH2)5NH |
piperidine, acid, heat (–H2O)
|| N2H4, KOH |
