Primary Alcohol into Carboxylic Acid
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeReduces carboxylic acid and esters. Only one Oxygen atom involved. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
HydrohalogenationMarkovnikov, use one equivalent per pi bond that you want broken
Alkyne into trans-Alkene
Replace a OH with a ClPrimary and Secondary
Alkene Halohydrin Formationanti-addition
EliminationHofmann
Alkene Ozonolysis
Replace a OH with a ClPrimary Only
Alkene addition of OH groupMarkovnikov, allows carbocation rearrangement
