Question: In each reaction box, place the best reagent and conditions from the list below
Synthesize ketones form alkynes by using the list of reagents provided. Hydration of alkynes form ketones.
Therefore the reaction structure is as follows:
1. B2H6 in THF
2. H2O2 / NaOH
Thus giving you the alcohol. To visit from the alcoholic beverages to the ketone, you will need one last step:
3. PCC in CH2Cl2 (a fairly famous reaction found out by E.J. Corey at Harvard)
