Cyclohexene and toluene + sulfuric acid

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

For cyclohexene and sulfuric acid reaction, is a precipitate suppose to form? the results looked yellow-orange ish, but it became murky. I'm suppose to note the solubility change, but i don't know what to say for it. Please help thanks.

For Toluene though, i heated it as well, and there was only a colour change, but it remained clear. What can I say about the solubility change for this? That it's still soluble? Again please help. Thanks

you'll need to be more specific and give out more details of the experiment, for instance, does this experiment involve a reaction between cyclohexene and toulene? In that case, cyclohexene could be protonated to become an electrophile which can react with toulene through an electrophilic aromatic substitution.
