The objective of this experiment was to oxidize 9-fluorenol with bleach to form 9-fluorenone. This was done with three different reactions, each under different conditions. The reactions were evaluated using the TLC plate to see how far each reaction progressed. During the experiment reaction test tube 2 had the darkest yellow color out of the three reactions. On the TLC plate the starting material had one dot, with an Rf value of 0.22. Reaction 1 had two dots, with Rf values of 0.29 and 0.55. Reaction 2 had two dots with Rf values of 0.24 and 0.53. Reaction 3 had two dots with Rf values of 0.25 and 0.55. In addition to these dots, there were small ovals on each lane; this was a result of contamination either due to touching the TLC
