    Please show the steps needed in order to synthesize the finished product from the starting material.

    1. Suggest a synthetic route to each of the following alkenes using an alcohol. Keep in mind that acid-catalyzed dehydration often gives mixtures of products due to arrangement. (See attachment for images)

    2. Show all synthetic steps necessary to convert 1-methylcyclohexanol to each of the compounds below. (See attachment for images)

    3. Write step-by-step mechanisms for each of the reactions shown below. (See attachment)

    4. Using 2-butanol as your only source of carbons in the final product, show all steps necessary to prepare the compound below. (See attachment)
