Alcohol Oxidation Mechanism H2CrO4 PCC KMnO4

Alcohol Oxidation Mechanism with H2CrO4, PCC and KMnO4 tutorial by Leah4sci

Oxidation of alcohols can be carried out by a variety of reagents. The most common mechanisms you’ll study in your organic chemistry course involve Chromic Acid H2CrO4, Pyridinium Chlorochromate PCC, and Potassium Permanganate KMnO4. The video below shows you how each of these mechanisms will react with primary alcohols to form an aldehyde or carboxylic […]

Oxidation of Alcohols to Aldehyde Ketone and Carboxylic Acid

Oxidation of Alcohols to Aldehyde Ketone and Carboxylic Acid Video by Leah4sci

Alcohols can be oxidized to aldehydes, ketones and carboxylic acids. The specific product will be¬†determined by the substitution of the starting alcohol, and the specific oxidizing reagent used in the reaction. This video will show you how to identify the oxidation products (or lack of) for primary, secondary and tertiary alcohols. We’ll look at the […]

Oxidation and Reduction of Alkenes and Alkynes

Alkenes & Alkynes Oxidation Reduction and Oxidative Cleavage Leah Fisch

This video takes you through the various oxidation and reduction reactions you’ve covered back in alkene and alkyne reactions. In this video we differentiate between redox reactions vs reactions that add oxygen/hydrogen without a net reduction. This video also compares different types of oxidative cleavage reactions using Ozonolysis and KMnO4 for terminal and internal alkenes […]
