Reaction 8: Alcohol Dehydration
In this reaction, which is the dehydration of an alcohol,
the -OH on C-3 and the -H on C-2 are removed to make a water
molecule. At the same time a double bond forms between C-2 and
C-3. This change makes the compound somewhat unstable, but energy
for the final step of glycolysis.
This reaction is catalyzed by enolase.
