Presumably from cyclohexanone; because that's what he said.
My first thought would be dehydration of a cyanohydrin (actually, my first thought was "someone wants help with their homework").

PCl5 will turn a ketone in a geminal dichloride.

Elimination of either one, in either direction would make the same 1-chloro hexene, so if this is facile the yeild should be high, would treatment of this with sodium cyanide go to the product?

Can't say if this is a good method.

How would you go about eliminating just one of the two geminal chloro groups? I guess it would be rather difficult, but I'm not sure.



Theory guides, experiment decides.
