Chapter 8: Thin-Layer Chromatography (TLC)
Principles of TLC:
Separation depends on differences in molecular interaction of compounds between two
phases, stationary and mobile. The stationary phase is adsorbent, normal
OXIDATION OF ALCOHOL
An alcohol (0.2 ml) was dissolved in 5 mL of CH 3CN and placed in a round-bottomed flask and cooled to
+5C using an ice-water bath and stirred magnetically. Finely ground KMnO 4 (0.3 g) was added in small
portions over a period of 15
