Condensed structural formulae of alcohols and reactions of alcohols

Submitted by mandy_dahl86 on Wed, 09/26/2007 - 17:24

Draw the condensed structural formula of and name the major product of each of the following reactions.

There are four reactions that need to be solved....
A.) CH3-CH2-CH2-OH yields ? Catalyst is H2SO4 and is 140 degrees celcius
B.) CH3-CH2-CH2-OH yeilds ? Catalyst is H2SO4 and is 180 degrees celcius
C.) CH3-CH2-CH2-OH yields ? catalyst is K2Cr2O7
D.) CH3-CH2-CH2-SH yields ? catalyst is K2CrO7

If anyone could help me that would be greatly appreciated!!! THANKS  :)

Sulfuric acid and heat will give an elimination

Cr2O72- is dichromate and is a strong oxidizing agent.
