How can ketone be oxidised to acids using kmno4 alkaline?

Asked by abhishek 11th January 2017, 7:59 PM

Answer:
  • Ketones undergo oxidation with strong oxidising agents  like alkaline KMnO4 and elevated temperatures.
  • The reaction involves carbon–carbon bond cleavage to give a mixture of carboxylic acids with lesser number of carbon atoms than the parent ketones.
