KINETICS AND MECHANISM OF OXIDATION OF BORNEOL (CYCLIC SECONDARY ALCOHOL) BY TRICHLOROISOCYANURIC ACID IN ACIDIC MEDIUM
The kinetics of Oxidation of borneol (C10H18O) [endo-1, 7, 7-Trimethyl bicyclo (2, 2, 1) heptan-2-ol] by aqueous perchloric system, yields of ketone in the presence of Trichloroisocyanuric acid at 300C. The stoichiometry is (1:1) and the main oxidation product is Camphor which is studied by TLC using benzene as a solvent and by spraying with 2, 4-dinitrophenyl hydrazine reagent. The observed rate of oxidation shows a first order dependence on both borneol and TCICA (Oxidant).
