  • Oxidation and Combustion of alcohols
    • Primary  oxidation
      • Heating gently and distilling with acidified potassium dichromate (1 [O])
        • Produces an aldehyde (suffix: al)
          • Goes from orange to green
            • Produces a carboxylic acid (suffix : oic)
      • Heating strongly under reflux with acidified potassium dichromate (2[O])
        • Heating gently and distilling with acidified potassium dichromate (1 [O])
          • Produces an aldehyde (suffix: al)
            • Goes from orange to green
              • Produces a carboxylic acid (suffix : oic)
    • Secondary oxidation
      • Acidified dichromate ions
        • Produce ketones, cannot be oxidised further
          • Goes from Orange to Green
    • Tertiary oxidation
      • Resistant to oxidation. oxidation agent remains orange
    • Combustion
      • Burn to form carbon dioxide and water
