Two Phase Oxidation of Aldehydes with Chromic Acid

The possibility of the two-phase oxidation of an aldehyde to carboxylic acid was studied. Thus the ether solutions of representative aldehydes (2.0M) were treated with 1.5 mole equivalent of chromic acid solution (1.0M) for 30 minutes at room temperature. Of the ten aldehydes tested, butanal, benzaldehyde, tolualdehyde, o-, m-, p-nitrobenzaldehyde and cinnamaldehyde could be oxidized conveniently to the corresponding carboxylic acid giving an 80-90% yield. But furfural gave only a 30% yield of furoic acid and the oxidation of salicylaldehyde was unsuccessful.
