What yield of different products will I obtain upon ozonolysis of o-methyl toluene?
Assuming 2 moles of the compound to react(each with different positions of double bonds), I get the possible products from 2 moles of o-methyl toluene:
- Methyl glyoxal- 2 moles
- Dimethyl glyoxal- 1 mole
- Glyoxal- 3 moles
Different contributing stuctures of the benzene ring are generating different sets of products(obviously). The methyl groups are either together or on separate molecules altogether.
I wonder if all possible products will be generated equally(same as molar ratio), or for some reason the yield of certain products will be favoured over others.
Thank you for your time.
