Oxidizing of organic compounds
Some organic compounds can be oxidized by oxidant agents. Most of times after organic compounds oxidation, carbon atoms make bonds between oxygen ( ).
Carboxylic acids, carbon dioxide, aldehyde, ketone .... can be given as products according to the initial compound, type of oxidant reagents and states.
Oxidizing organic compounds
There are two types of oxidant agents, strong oxidant agents and weak oxidant agents
strong oxidant agents
- H+ / MnO42-
- H+ / Cr2O72-
Weak oxidant agents
- Pyridinium chlorochromate(PCC)
- Tollens's reagent - Adding [Ag(NH3)2]+, heating,then dilute HCl and water
- Fehling's A / Fehling's B and then add dilute HCl
