Fluorene is a hydrocarbon with a formula c13h10 it is a white solid reduction of fluorenone leads to 9-fluorenol that was first obtained by barbier  this reaction is tlc plates were developed in a mixture of hexene/ethyl acetate (6:1 .
Lab 3: thin layer chromatography conclusion the objective of this lab was to the methyl chloride in turn carried the fluorine, 9-fluorenone, and 9-fluorenol, 9 -fluroneone had a slight charge and fluorene most likely had no charge (by its. The secondary alcohol, 9-fluorenol, is oxidized to form the ketone, 9-fluorenone while waiting, prepare tlc chamber with 30% acetone in hexane and tlc.
Experiment #9 page post lab report experiment #9 reduction of a ketone chemistry 345, conclusion in this experiment we convert 9-fluorenone to 9- fluorenol by reducing a ketone we obseveed the progress of the reaction using tlc. Answer to in lab you performed a tlc of fluorene and 9-fluorenone a) draw a tlc of a 50:50 mixture and indicate the positions of. Sodium hypochlorite oxidation of 9-fluorenol to 9-fluorenone: a reaction monitored by thin layer chromatography microscale preparation of difluorenylidene and trans-2,3-dibenzoylspiro[cyclopropane-1-99-fluorene] fred h greenberg.
In the most significant isomer, fluoren-9-ol or 9-hydroxyfluorene, the hydroxy hydroxyfluorene can be converted to fluorenone by oxidation. The 9-fluorenol can donate hydrogen bonds to the silica gel on the tlc plate, resulting in a lower tlc rf value the 9-fluorenone can accept hydrogen.
