THE a-OXIDATION OF ACETALDEHYDE AND THE MECHANISM OF THE OXIDATION OF LACTIC ACID

Abstract

In previous papers (1, 2) it has been shown that in dilute aqueous solutions aldehydes may be oxidized in the a! position by oxidizing agents such as ceric sulfate, potassium dichromate, and potassium ferricyanide. Normal butyraldehyde and isobutyraldehyde yielded the most conclusive results; the latt,er was converted by ceric sulfate at 80’ into cr… (More)
