Document Summary

Experiment 1: oxidation of an alcohol report sheet. Objective: 1 mark (what is the purpose of this experiment?) The objective of this experiment is to oxidize cyclohexanol, a secondary alcohol, by reacting it with sodium hypochlorite and form cyclohexanone, a ketone. The reaction is performed with the help of acetic acid which activates it. At the end of the lab, with the use of ir spectroscopy, the product is to be verified if it is actually cyclohexanone. Introduction: 2 marks (brief description of the concept/reaction studied oxidation of an alcohol) The oxidation of an alcohol to an aldehyde, ketone, or carboxylic acid plays a huge role in organic chemistry. Primary alcohols can be oxidized into aldehydes and then further oxidized to carboxylic acids, while secondary alcohols can be oxidized into ketones. It is important to note that the oxidation process normally consists of two reactions.
