Question

The relative rate of acid catalysed dehydration of following alcohols would be

  1. I > III > IV > II
  2. III > I > IV > II
  3. III > IV > I > II
  4. III > IV > I > II


Solution

The correct option is C III > IV > I > II
Since acid catalysed dehydration follow product formation via formation of carbocation and relative stability of carbocation is 30>20>10 also, option (iv) will undergo methyl shift leading to formation of 30 carbo cation
