1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data is it possible to use conc HNO3 instead of H2SO4 to allow the reaction of oxidation of cyclohexanol to haxane-1.6 dioic acid to occur? how can the reaction occur? cyclohexanol is seconary alcohol , it should be oxidised to ketone am i right? but it's oxidised to carboxylic acid... 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution i was told that cyclohexanol is dehydrated to cyclohexene first , then it only oxidised to haxane-1,6 dioic acid... but it's not stated in the book.... is the statement above correct?
