Question

Show how would you synthesise the following alcohols from appropriate alkenes

Solution

The given alcohols can be synthesized by applying Markovnikov’s rule of acid-catalyzed hydration of appropriate alkenes.

Acid-catalyzed hydration of pent-2-ene also produces pentan-2-ol but along with pentan-3-ol.

Thus, the first reaction is preferred over the second one to get pentan-2-ol.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
