Show how you would use Grignard syntheses to prepare the following alcohols from the indicated starting materials and any other necessary reagents.
(a) octan-3-ol from hexanal, CH3(CH2)4CHO
(b) octan-1-ol from 1-bromoheptane
(c) 1-cyclohexylethanol from acetaldehyde, CH3CHO
(d) 2-cyclohexylethanol from bromocyclohexane
(e) benzyl alcohol from bromobenzene
(g) cyclopentylphenylmethanol from benzaldehyde
(a) 3-octanol from CHO
Here two more carbon atom is needed, so the Grignard reagent should be of two carbon reagent.
(b) 1-octanol from 1-bromoheptane
(c) 1-cyclohexylethanol from
