Ok the keton get to alcohol is correct, but there will be nor sodium neither Borane obtained.

Product is sodiumborate.

But you know now that 1 mol keton gives 1 mol alcohol.

Now procedure the next step.
Ohh i see its sodiumborate, thank you. But how do i convert 2ml to mole?

### Re: Reduction of Cyclohexanone to Cylcohexanol

First develop the chemical reaction. Then you can see how many mole of the keton correspond to the Then convert the 2 ml into mole and calculate how much theoretically product can be obtained. Then also convert the obtained mass and compare. Okay thank you :) So does the equation be something like ...

### Reduction of Cyclohexanone to Cylcohexanol

Hello everyone, kinda need help understanding on this topic.
How do I calculate the percentage yield and theoretical yield of the product (cyclohexanol) ?
The weight of the product is = 1.502g
Volume of cylcohexanone is = 2mL
Using NaBH4 and methanol
