Alkyne into cis-Alkene
EliminationZaitsev
Alcohol into Grignard
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeDoes not reduce carboxylic acid or esters. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
Elimination into AlkyneExample: X-C-C-X
Hydrogenation
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeReduces carboxylic acid and esters. Only one Oxygen atom involved. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
Alkene Dihydroxylationsyn addition
Alkene addition of OH groupMarkovnikov, allows carbocation rearrangement
