Sequence of the formation of products in the oxidation of ethylbenzene
- 54 Downloads
Acetophenone is the final product of the oxidation of ethylbenzene and is formed exclusively on account of the oxidation of the alcohol during the process of oxidation of ethylbenzene.
The rate of consumption of methylphenylcarbinol is greater than the rate of acetophenone formation, i.e., the alcohol is also consumed along another direction of the reaction.
The sequence of interconversions of the initial and intermediate substances in the initiated oxidation of ethylbenzene can be represented in the following form: Ethylbenzene → α-hydroperoxide of ethylbenzene → methylphenylcarbinol → acetophenone.
