The kinetics of oxidation of unsaturated alcoholsviz. allyl, crotyl and cinnamyl alcohol by sodium bis[2-ethyl-2-hydroxy butanoato (2−)] oxochromate(V) Crv, has been investigated in 25% (v/v) aq. HOAc:HClO4. The order in [oxidant] and [substrate] was 1.0 and 0.7 respectively. The oxidation rate increased with increase in [2-ethyl-2-hydroxybutyric acid] (EHBA) and decreased with increase in the percentage of HOAc. The rate decreases slightly with increase in [H_]. The unsaturated alcohols exhibited higher reactivity compared to their saturated analogues. A mechanism involving the formation of a complex between Crv and alcohol which in turn disproportionates into products in a slow step is advanced to explain the kinetic results.
