Alcoholic Coordination

Chemistry Level 3

\(\text{t-butyl ethanol}\) is mixed into a solution of heated \(\text{sulfuric acid}\) and the major product is mixed with \(\text{osmium tetroxide}\). The final product will contain one or more alcohol substituents. \[\]Your answer should be the sum of the carbon positions (\(C_{OH}\)) an alcohol is attached.\[\] For example, if \(C_1\), \(C_3\), and \(C_9\) all have alcohol groups, then your answer would be \(1+3+9 = \boxed{13}\). \[\] Use IUPAC numbering protocol when labeling the carbon positions in your answer.
