Question

With this type of reaction (alkyl side chain), is the product always benzoic acid (as long as the benzylic H is present)? Is an hydroxyl group not also a product (depending reactants)?

  • I believe this was for the side chain oxidization reaction in chapter 14 of Organic Chemistry. Valneisha commented over 1 year ago
