1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Complete the following reactions, giving the correct structure for each organic product: eugenol + FeCl_3 -> eugenol acetate + FeCl_3 -> 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution When I did this lab, my partner and I didn't notice a reaction when we added FeCl_3 to our eugenol product, but that seems too easy; why would they ask what the product is if there wasn't a reaction. However, both eugenol and eugenol acetate have an alkene. I learned in lecture that when an alkene reacts with a halogen in the presence of a catalyst (Cl_2 and FeCl_3, respectfully) the double bond becomes a single bond and each side takes one of the halogen atoms. So does the alkene end simply become CClH-2-CClH_2 for both eugenol and eugenol acetate? Any help is greatly appreciated.
