Sophie Scheidlinger 19337239 Magtrieve Oxidation of 4-Chlorobenzyl Alcohol Introduction : The purpose of the experiment is to successfully use magtrieve to oxidize 4-chlorobenzyl alcohol, a primary alcohol until it forms 4-chlorobenzaldehyde, a ketone. Being able to oxidize primary and secondary alcohols to aldehydes and ketones is a useful synthesis. Being able to conduct these reactions without overoxidizing or wasting solvent benefits the chemist and the environment. Discussion : The starting product was a black powder, a mixture of 0.143 grams of 4-chlorobenzyl alcohol and 0.702 grams of magtrieve. White crystals began to form on the underside of the watchglass, above the starting product, after 10 minutes of heating, and they continued to form throughout the 30 minutes of heating. The reaction was repeated a second time, and the crystals began to form immediately and throughout the 35 minutes of heating. The reaction produced a sweet, pleasant odor. The mechanism of the reaction is as follows: The chemical literature (Rauter) is about a one-step synthesis of 10-membered bislactones by PCC oxidation of methyl 2,6-di-O-pivaloyl-alpha-D-glucopyranoside and methyl 4,6-O-benzylidene-alpha-D-glucopyranoside. The use of PCC and PCC adsorbed

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
