  • Tetraphenylcyclopentadienone Synthesis Essay

    reaction. The next step was the preparation of benzil from the oxidation reaction of benzoin with nitric acid. In the oxidation reaction, the alcohol functional group of benzoin was oxidized to form the carbonyl functional group of benzil, while the nitric acid was reduced into a mixture of nitrogen oxides that formed toxic brown fumes. The final step was the preparation of tetracyclone from the aldol condensation reaction of…

  • Aldol Condensation Synthesis

    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, undergoes two consecutive base-catalyzed aldol…

  • Carbonyl Acetate Lab Report

    done on benzaldehyde (PhCHO). If benzaldehyde is treated with aqueous alkaline potassium cyanide (KCN) then it gives rise to a product named Benzoin via several steps. This is a α-hydroxy carbonyl compound. In this reaction CN- acts as the nucleophile and it is a very good nucleophile due to is linear and compact structure. For carrying out this reaction we need a good electron donor molecule and a good electron accepter molecule. Benzoin condensation reaction is highly reversible in nature and…

  • The Importance Of Neurosurgeons

    In 2005, the active number of neurosurgeons was 4,285, which increased by 2.4% in 2009 where there were 4,388 practicing neurosurgeons ("The Surgical Workforce in the United"). The number of surgeons slowly increases because of the strenuous amount of schooling, residency, and fellowships a neurosurgeon must go through. Also, they must be skilled and extremely precise in every diagnosis and treatment they perform. Neurosurgeons are located in almost every hospital because the nervous system is…
