Permanganate oxidations and the carboxyl group

In order to study the possible effects on permanganate oxidation reactions of a carboxyl sustituent near the reacting centre, three systems were investigated. The first of these systems consisted of the 2-and 4-benzhydrolcarboxylic acids. It was found that the 2-compound reacted more slowly than th...
