oxidation of alcohols leads to carbonyl compounds
anonymous
  • anonymous
it also depends upon reagent and structure of alcohol

i dont get it what happened when methanol and ethanol are oxidized

Depending on how strong the oxidising reagent you will either get ketones, aldehydes or carboxylic acids But in general the following will happen primary alcohols--> aldehydes --> carboxylic acids secondary alcohols --> ketones (no further reaction) Methanol --- methanal----methanoic acid CH3OH ---> CH2O ----> HCO2H Ethanol ---> ethanal ---> ethanoic acid CH3CH2OH ----> CH3CHO ----> CH3CO2H
