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).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
