A Compilation of action of various reducing and oxidising agents in organic chemistry

  1. Oct 23, 2008 #1
    I would be glad if someone compiled a list or atleast provide the link for the actions of various oxidizing and reducing agents like LAH, BAH, hydrogen, potassium permanganate etc. and on the various functional groups. This will be very useful to any organic aficionado and I will be very happy if you even included specific groups the reagent would leave untouched. If each person does it for one reagent, then I guess we will have a huge list in no time.
