Alkyne into cis-Alkene
Secondary Alcohol into a Ketone
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeReduces carboxylic acid and esters. Does not leave other pi bonds alone.
Alkene addition of OH groupanti-Markovnikov, syn-addition
HydrohalogenationMarkovnikov, use one equivalent per pi bond that you want broken
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeReduces carboxylic acid and esters. Only one Oxygen atom involved. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
