Answer to Question #23154 in Organic Chemistry for anissa
could you please help me with this; the reductive ozonolysis of 1-methyl cyclohexene conduct to a compound A. This compound treated in basic environment leads to a cyclization reaction following a specific carbonyl compounds. Give feedback and clarify the mechanisms of the products likely to form. thank you
Methylcyclohexane is a fully saturated strainless hydrocarbon and will not undergo a reaction with ozone, except at high concentrations (under such conditions it combusts). If you meant, 1-methylcyclohexene, the product is obtained by removing the double bond and attaching a double-bonded oxygen to each carbon atom. This gives 6-oxoheptanal. Then, after reducing you'll get 6-oxoheptanoic acid. This is your compound A. The last one specific carbonyl compound is 2-methylcyclohexanone.
