Some of the reactions were done to synthesize compounds that were used to conduct other reactions. The experiments were also used to analyze the efficiency of these reactions.


Which of the following is true about the conversion involved in Reaction 2?

A The conversion is an oxidation reaction, and can be accomplished by using LiAlH4
B The conversion is a reduction reaction, and can be accomplished by using LiAlH4
C The conversion is an oxidation reaction, and can be accomplished by using KMnO4
D The conversion is a reduction reaction, and can be accomplished by using KMnO4
Ans. C The conversion is an oxidation reaction. This rules out Choices B and D. LiAlH4 is a reducing agent. So Choice A is wrong. KMnO4 is a good oxidizing agent which can accomplish this conversion.
