Question Description:

20.50

Pulegone reacts with Pd/C at 180Celsius and generates 2products, one isolated in the aqueous layer and the other in the hexane layer. The mass spectra of the hexane product showermolecular ion (EIMS) at m/z=154. The IR spectra showed a sharp band at 1736cm-1. The 13C NMR spectra showed peak at 198ppm. Identify the two compounds isolated from each phase and explain how you reachedthese conclusions. Write a balanced equation for this reaction.

Answer

20.50
