Synthesis of 5-Methyl-5-Hexen-2-one using the Organic Syntheses Method

Written by Nicole   Introduction The purpose of this paper is to compare experimental methods in order to acquire the optimal procedure to synthesize the compound 5-Methyl-5-hexen-2-one. Procedures will be scrutinized according to their cost and time efficiency, as well as the complexity and thoroughness of procedure in producing product at a high yield.  A detailed stepwise mechanism is indicated for 5-methyl-5-hexen-2-one.  Also indicated in this paper are two methods that produce the product from experimental procedures: “Stereoselective Total Synthesis […]
