Give the correct organic products, in any order, for the following ozonolysis reaction:
Concepts and reason
Ozonolysis is carried in presence of and it is mainly observed in alkenes and alkynes.
Alkenes undergo ozonolysis in presence of to form carbonyl compounds (i.e. aldehydes or ketones) as products.
The given alkene is (E)-(4-methylpent-2-en-1-yl)benzene.
(E)-(4-methylpent-2-en-1-yl)benzene is di substituted alkene (i.e. it contains 2 hydrogens). So, after ozonolysis two aldehyde products are formed.
The reaction is,
(E)-(4-methylpent-2-en-1-yl)benzene undergoes ozonolysis to form two products. They are 2-phenylacetaldehyde and isobutyraldehyde.
