# 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.
