|alcohols from paraffines||Bookmark|
How is paraffines oxidized into theire cooresponding alcohols? Fx octane --> octanol.
Higher alcohols can be used used to make aliquat.
I know that there is a lot of ways but I read a breef about a catalyzed liquid phase oxidation using FeCl3 and free oxygen. H2O2 was also mentioned somwhere if remembe correct.
