Why are tertiary alcohols resistent to oxidation? (to aldehydes or carboxylic acids)
I know why they cannot be oxidized to ketone when we use chromic acid.(Because at the step of leaving of chromate ester,there is no available hydrogen atom to be eliminated.)
But what about the other reagents? Is there any standard procedure to oxidize tertiary alcohols to ketone,carboxylic acid or aldehyde?
Thanks in advance...
