The kinetics of the oxidation of benzyl alcohol by potassium chlorochromate, KCrClO3, has been studied in dimethyl sulfoxide-dichloromethane medium. The reaction is catalyzed by acid. The effects of temperature and solvent composition were studied and activation parameters evaluated. Probable mechanisms are discussed.
