Organic reaction

  1. Mar 13, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    R-CH=CH-C=_CH in presense of CrO3 and HOAc gives R-COOH+ CH=_C-COOH

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Can someone please explain this reaction to me? Seems like the double bond was broken and replaced with a =O. Almost like ozonolysis except the triple bond wasnt touched.
