Question

What is the nature of the carbon-carbon bond(s) in the compound formed when concentrated H2SO4 dehydrates ethanol?
  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. none


Solution

The correct option is B 2
Heating ethanol with hot concentrated sulphuric acid results in the dehydration (removal of water) of ethanol to give ethene.

Therefore, a double bond exists between the two carbon atoms.
