A(C9H12) absorbed 3 moles of H2 on catalytic reduction over Pd catalyst to give B(C9H18).?
On treatment with KMnO4, A gave, among other things a ketone that was identified as cyclohexanone.
On treatment with NaNH2 in NH3, followed by addition of iodomethane,A gave a new hydrocarbon, C (C10H14).What are the structures of A, B and C?
α-Terpinene, C10H16, is a pleasant-smelling hydrocarbon that has been isolated from oil of marjoram. On hydrogenation over a palladium catalyst, α-terpinene reacts with 2 molar equivalents of H2 to yield a hydrocarbon, C10H20. On reaction with acidic KMnO4, α-terpinene yields oxalic acid and 6-methylheptane-2,5-dione.Propose a structure...
