10.6.1: Deduce reaction pathways given the starting
materials and the product.
Conversions with more than two stages will not be assessed. Reagents,
conditions and equations should be included.
For example: The conversion of but-2-ene to butanone can be done in two
1. but-2-ene can be heated with steam and a catalyst to form butan-2-ol.
2. The butan-2-ol can then be oxidised by heating with acidified potassium
dichromate(VI) to form butanone.
