🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Daoudi's class at UCF.

Solution: Acid-catalyzed dehydration of 3-methyl-2-butanol gives three alkenes: 2-methyl-2-butene, 3-methyl-1- butene, and 2-methyl-1-butene. Propose a mechanism to account for the formation of each product.
