Abstract

This study explored indanol oxidized to indanone using microwave irradiation under varying parameters of time and temperature with a constant wattage. The oxidizing agent used was chromium trioxide resin (polymer-supported chromic acid) in dichloromethane as the solvent. After 24 reactions were completed, the software, Minitab, was used to determine whether time or temperature, or whether both parameters together, influenced percent conversion of indanol to indanone. Percent conversion was determined by analyzing 1H NMR of each of the reactions. The data showed that both temperature and time had an effect on the amount of indanol converted to indanone, with increasing temperature and time demonstrating an increase in percent conversion.

Oxidation of Indanol to Indanone Through the Optimization of Various Parameters of Microwave Irradiation
