Hydration of Alkenes:

Hydration of alkenes through addition of {eq}H_2SO_4 {/eq} in the presence of water as solvent produces Markovnikov alcohol product where OH attaches to the more highly substituted carbon involved in the double bond. This is a consequence of the formation of carbocation intermediate formed in the process. A more highly substituted carbon produces a more stable carbocation.

1.

To produce 2-hexanol where OH is in carbon 2, a secondary carbon, the double bond must be between a primary carbon and a secondary carbon. This...
