1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 3,4-dibromo-2,5-dimethylhexane treated with excess k t-butoxide will form an alkyne and diene. The IR spectra shows bands at 3010,2995,2980,1610,1450,1380 and 1050 cm^-1. What are the predicted products? Which one actually formed? Why? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution My products are 2,5-dimethyl-3-hexyne and a conjugated diene. Are my products correct? Also, which product is formed? I searched online and it says the alkyne will form, but from the IR spectra, the diene formed?
