Pinnick oxidation

pinnick oxidation of aldehyde

The transformation of aldehydes (aliphatic, aromatic, saturated, or unsaturated) to the corresponding carboxylic acids is known as the Pinnick Oxidation. The Pinnick oxidation procedure is the NaClO2/2-methyl-2-butene the system was generally used to oxidize a wide range of α and β-unsaturated Aldehydes without affecting any of the double bonds present in the substrate.
