also look for Jones Reagent..
Oh, talking about oxidation..I also wanna ask this..it's about oxidation mechanism..
In my chemistry textbook for school student..it's written that oxidation process in alcohol is taking a hydrate form as a transition then, one of the -OH group will release H+ and become a carbonyl bond...is it true? I just confused with that..
maybe it's like this:
R-CH2-OH --oxidator--> [R-CH(OH)2] ---> R-CH=O
Simply ask, can anyone tell me how the mechanism is??
