Reduction of Camphor

Written by Kevin Abstract: This experiment will reduce camphor into isobornel with sodium borohydride. After the product is obtained, a percent yield, IR spectrum, and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry will be obtained to discuss the properties  of isoborneol. Introduction: This was a reduction reaction in whish camphor was reduced into isoborneol with the use of sodium borohydride. Experimental Description: Camphor was allowed to be reduced into isoborneol in this reaction. Camphor was first obtained and dissolved in methanol. Sodium borohydride was […]
