Question

# The preparation of benzene from acetylene can also be said as:A. OxidationB. PolymerizationC. DehydrationD. Condensation

Hint: Acetylene is a simplest alkyne with chemical formula ${C_2}{H_2}$. Chemical formula of benzene is ${C_6}{H_6}$. So, if we take 3 molecules of ethyne or acetylene and react under further conditions we get the benzene. Now let us see the complete step by step procedure to get the benzene from acetylene.
- Acetylene has the formula as ${C_2}{H_2}$ while benzene has a chemical formula as ${C_6}{H_6}$.
