FSc Chemistry Book2, CH 13, LEC 2, From Alcohols, Aldehydes and Ketones

This video lecture from Carboxylic Acids (F.Sc. second year Chemistry) covers the preparation of carboxylic acids by the oxidation of alcohols, aldehydes and ketones in the presence of acid dichromate and permanganate. Alcohols oxidize to carbonyl compounds first, primary alcohols to aldehydes and secondary alcohols to ketones. The aldehydes oxidize simply by hydrate formation initially followed by removal of hydrogen or oxidation in the elimination step. Ketones are difficult to oxidize and bond cleavage is involved following Popoff’s rule.
