Alcohol oxidation. Oxidation of a primary alcohol (propan-1-ol) by potassium dichromate solution (K2Cr2O7, yellow, left). The dichromate is a strong oxidizing agent that is reduced when it reacts, forming a green solution (right). This primary alcohol (propan-1-ol) turns into a carboxylic acid (propanoic acid).
