Write structural formula equations for the synthesis of propene by three different processes. I don't need a structural diagram, I just need the name of the processes. I have the addition of hydrogen to a propyne, and the removal of OH and H from a propen-1-ol. What else can I do?

    You can from propene by elimination reaction of a haloalkane. The halogen acts as a leaving group and the carbon atoms adjacent to that carbon bonded to the leaving group are where double bonds are formed. You also have major and minor products depending on the number of beta hydrogen at the double bond.
