Oxidation of a Hydrocarbon saturated hydrocarbon unsaturated hydrocarbon alcohol alcohol ketone aldehyde carboxylc acid hydrolysis hydrolysis With respect to a saturated hydrocarbon: - hydrocarbons with a single double bond, and alcohols, are 2 units more oxidized, - aldehydes and ketones are 4 units more oxidized, - carboxylic acids are 6 units more oxidized. * Pathway (1) Pathway (2) More details of some of the individual reactions of these pathways are shown in the following four presentation slides. 1 2a 2b 3a 3b 4b 3
