Fluorenone Reduction

Written by Kevin Abstract: This experiment will observe the reduction of fluorenone to fluorenol (Fluorenone Reduction) through thin-layer chromatography. This reduction will be monitored at different time intervals and under different solvent concentrations to be compared with two reference solutions of fluorenone and fluorenol. In the end, a general trend will be seen between the solvent system used with different concentrations of MeOH and THF and the total length of time for the reaction to go to completion. Experimental Section: Fluorenone […]
