Caption: Oxidation of alcohols. Image 1 of 2. Start of an oxidation of three alcohols (labelled) by potassium dichromate solution (K2Cr2O7, yellow). The dichromate is a strong oxidizing agent that is reduced when it reacts, forming a green solution. Primary and secondary alcohols can be oxidized, but tertiary alcohols cannot. See image A500/398 for the completed reactions.
