Isopropyl Alcohol Oxidation
The chemical means of isopropyl alcohol (IPA) oxidation is utilized to transform IPA to acetone. IPA is a colorless liquid with a potent odor that’s utilized in a wide range of sectors, together with cleansing merchandise, cosmetics, and prescribed drugs. When oxidizing IPA, a robust oxidizing agent is used, and sodium dichromate is the preferred alternative (Tavakoli et al., 2021). Oxalic acid and acetone are produced because of the extreme oxidation of sodium dichromate within the course of. Total, the response is as follows: Na2Cr2O7 + H2O + H2C2H5OH = CH3COCH3 + H + 2Na+ + H + 2CrO4-. The proton connected to the oxygen peak can be at 1.3-1.6 ppm, the proton connected to the carbon peak can be at 1.7-2.2 ppm, and the proton connected to the carbon peak can be at 3.2-3.7 ppm within the 1H NMR spectrum of IPA (proton connected to hydrogen). The alerts within the IPA spectrum would every have integral values of 6:4:4, correspondingly (Tavakoli et al., 2021).
