|THF + KMnO4 --> GBL||Bookmark|
Hey bees! SWIM has UTFSE and read all related items at rhodium's site, and thinks he's ready to experiment, but for a couple questions...
SWIM happens to have some permanganate laying around, but no bromates or chromates so...
Question #1: Anyone have a reason this won't work?
C4H8O(aq)+ KMnO4(aq)+ H2O2 ---> C4H6O2 + H2O + K2O + MnO2
Or must I get more complicated? ie. add alumina(what for?), other oxidizers, or reduce my KMnO4 to Mn2O7 with H2SO4 as SpicyBrown suggested.
Question #2: Do I have the products right? I'm just guessing what the K and Mn ions will do.
Thanks bees in advance.
I'll post a results write up if anyone cares to see it.
