Elimination mechanism of alcohols

Alkenes can be formed from alcohols by acid-catalysed elimination reactions (mechanism not required). Alkenes produced by this method can be used to produce addition polymers without using monomers derived from crude oil. Assessment and practical opportunities Students could carry out the preparation of cyclohexene from cyclohexanol, including purification using a separating funnel and by distillation. Required practical Distillation of a product from a reaction.
