Atif Saleem, ID # 19546129, 02-02-2009, Section 101, GSI: Jason Hudak Chemistry 3BL Lab # 1: Magtrieve Oxidation Introduction: The purpose of the Magtrieve Oxidation lab is to use a reagent, Magtrieve, to oxidize a primary alcohol into an aldehyde without using a solvent, or solvent work-up. Without using a solvent, the product is able to be recycled and the reagents are added together in a dry manner. When 4-chlorobenzyl alcohol is added to magtrieve, crystals of 4-chlorobenzaldehyde product are formed in a closed and cooled system. After this product is formed, it is analyzed using thin layer chromatography, and it’s melting point range is recorded. Discussion: Magtrieve Oxidation trickles off of the basic chromium reagent based oxidation. These chromium reagents, when reacted with alcohols can give aldehydes and ketons because chromium has a high oxidation state. After running into the problem of overoxidation when trying to react the chromium reagent with a primary alcohol, PCC was discovered and it implemented itself as a “water-free” form of chromium. Not only can PCC react with primary alcohols, it can also react with secondary alcohols because the non acidic reaction minimizes side reactions. The following is an example of PCC oxidation,

    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.
