Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Jamie on Saturday, March 20, 2010 at 1:32pm.

What aldehydes and primary alcohols might be oxidized to yield the following carboxylic acids:
1)p-methylhexanoic acid
2)pentanoic acid

#1 should have been p-methylcyclohexanoic acid (p is para). My homework has the structure drawn out and I named it wrong. Sorry. It has a CH3-cylcohexane ring-COOH and the CH3 is across from the COOH. That is p-methylcyclohexanoic acid right?
