Outline a Wittig synthesis of each of the following compounds from an appropriate alkyl halide and carbonyl compound.
The Wittig reaction involves the reaction of an aldehyde or ketone with triphenylphosphonium ylide (aka Wittig reagent) to give an alkene. The triphenyl Phosphnium ylide is formed when triphenyl Phosphide reacts with an alkyl halide. This reaction is performed in one step by taking aldehyde along with the alkyl halide in the presence of triphenyl Phosphide.
