Students of an organic chemistry class conducted several experiments with aldehydes and ketones. Some of the reactions are summarized below:
Acetophenone was reacted with Reagent A. The product was ethyl benzene.
Propanal underwent acid-catalyzed reaction with alcohol.
Experiment 3 involved merely the analysis of a conversion. Students were asked to discuss a method to accomplish this synthesis reaction.
The conversion presented in Experiment 1 is:
