Write an equation representing the oxidation of each of the following.

I'm on 3-hexanol.
And this is what I got
-> [o] 3-hexanal and further oxidation I know you get 3-hexananoic acid. I don't know how to make this in the line formula. Can I put the -OH and the double bond O on carbon 3. Or is there no further reaction with this molecule.

    The way that you have set up the nomenclature, you are implying that you will get a carboxylic acid from 3-hexanol; this is not true. You will get a ketone, not an acid.
