Choose the reagent and reactant that would produce 2-methyl-2-butanol as the major product.
Select the correct alkene for the synthesis of 2-methyl-2-butanol via oxymercuration-demercuratlon.
A mixture of two alcohols 3−methyl−1−butanol and 2−methyl−1−butanol, given chiefly 2−methyl−2−butene when dehydrated with acid. 2−methyl−2−butene is converted into 2−methyl−2−butanol with approximately 90% yield by treatment with 50% aqueous solution of sulphuric acid at 0∘ C. Write equation showing mechanism of conversions.
Identify to which type does the following complex reaction belong to: dehydration of 2-methyl-2-butanol
Assertion :Acid catalysed dehydration of t-butanol is slower than n-butanol. Reason: Dehydration involves formation of the protonated alcohol, ROH+2
