CH3CH2CHCH3 --H2CrO4--> ?
it came out wrong the OH is attached to the 3rd carbon, not the first
Secondary alcohols are oxidized to ketones.
CH3CH=CHCH3 Is the product cis and/or trans. This looks like a dehydration reaction producing an alkene.
H2CrO4 produces oxidation and H2SO4 produces elimination. I apologize.
