Pyridinium Chlorochromate

Pyridinium chlorochromate is a reddish orange solid reagent used to oxidize primary alcohols to aldehydes and secondary alcohols to ketones. It will not fully oxidize a primary alcohol to the carboxylic acid as does the Jones reagent. A disadvantage to pyridinium chlorochromate using is its toxicity. It was developed by Elias James Corey and William Suggs in 1975. Pyridinium dichromate is a similar oxidizing agent, which has the advantage of being less acidic.
