  • Aldol Condensation Synthesis

    The purpose of this experiment was to use aldol condensation methods to synthesize colored cyclopentadienone and then UV/VIS spectrophotometry to characterize the dienone structure synthesized. The information gathered from the UV/VIS analysis was then compared to a computer model of the desired product to analyze the optimal 3D structure of the dienone. The base catalyzed condensation reaction was used to form the product for analysis, followed by vacuum filtration to recover the product. Both a melting point analysis and a UV/VIS analysis were used to analyze the composition of the obtained product. Finally, the computer model was examined to learn about the optimal angles and strain within the molecule. The dibenzylketone, 1,3-diphenyl-2-propanone,…

  • Aldol Condensation Lab Report

    There are several different reactions that can be utilized in order to end with a product that includes the synthesis of carbon-carbon bonds, however for this experiment the reaction that was utilized is aldol condensation. An aldol condensation is when an enolizable aldehyde or ketone undergoes a reaction, in the presence of a base or acid, and gives a beta unsaturated ketone or aldehyde (Utah Valley University, 2009). This type of reaction can also add carbonyls to a compound, using similar…

    illegal activity. “ Between 1984 and 1992 the average salary in the informal sector grew by 10%, while in the formal sector the increase was only 3%.”(Rubio 805-816) In a greater sense, the growth of the Colombian economy is powered informal sector. Consequently, the elite, upper class and upper middle class are the main bodies behind this growth. Therefore, the poorer part of the community is left with scarce resources, uneducated and exploited. The greatest challenge, as a result, is security…
