One mole of a symmetrical alkene on ozonolysis gives two moles of an aldehyde having a molecular mass of 44 u. The alkene is

  1. 1-butene
  2. 2-butene
  3. propene
  4. ethene

Answer

Molar mass is 44, so aldehyde is CH3CHO

Symmetrical alkene will be CH3CH=CHCH3 (2-butene)

The correct option is B.
