HO OH ethylene glycol HO O H HO O OH O O OH H O O OH OH double oxidation products [O] ANSWER KEY - Chem 8B, carbonyl and oxidation practice questions: 1. Under oxidation conditions, a primary alcohol can oxidize to give two different products. Give the structures of the first and second oxidation products for alcohol A : [O] = oxidation conditions H 3 C OH [O] [O] product of first oxidation product of second oxidation A B C H 3 C O H 3 C O OH H aldehyde carboxylic acid primary alcohol b) What method would use to detect whether you formed any product in your oxidation reaction? The oxidation products will have a different boiling point and also a different polarity than the alcohol, so you can use gas chromatography (GC) or liquid chromatography (LC) and see if there is more than one peak, or a different peak that would indicate that one of the products has formed. You can also use colorimetric assays (which we will talk more about in the upcoming lecture). c) If you are not sure whether you formed product B or C in you reaction, what technique would you
