Alcoholic Coordination

Chemistry Level 2

t-butyl ethanol\text{t-butyl ethanol} is mixed into a solution of heated sulfuric acid\text{sulfuric acid} and the major product is mixed with osmium tetroxide\text{osmium tetroxide}. The final product will contain one or more alcohol substituents. Your answer should be the sum of the carbon positions (COHC_{OH}) an alcohol is attached. For example, if C1C_1, C3C_3, and C9C_9 all have alcohol groups, then your answer would be 1+3+9=131+3+9 = \boxed{13}. Use IUPAC numbering protocol when labeling the carbon positions in your answer.
