15. Synthesis of 1-Methylcyclohexene from Cyclohexene

This is a classic style of a synthesis where we add a new carbon-carbon bond and return back to the original functional group we’ve had on our molecule.

Reactions you’re going to see in this synthesis are:

  1. Grignard reaction
  2. Hydration of alkenes
  3. Oxidation of alcohols
  4. Dehydration of alcohols
