Acid Catalyzed Hydration of Alkenes

Acid catalyzed hydration alcohol formation alkene reaction mechanism

Acid catalyzed hydration of alkenes is the reaction in which a pi bond is broken and an alcohol added to the Markovnikov position when carried out in water. When alcohol is used as the reaction solvent an ether will form following the same reaction mechanism. The video below is Part 5 in my Alkene Reaction […]
