Abstract

Secondary alcohols are oxidized to corresponding ketones. Both aromatic and aliphatic secondary alcohols have been oxidized to their corresponding ketones using environmentally friendly polymer supported chromium trioxide. This research explores the oxidation of several types of these alcohols. These reactions were run using microwave assisted organic synthesis and compared to conventional methods.
