Possible Reaction

  1. Dec 1, 2014 #1
    Find out the product of the following reaction
    Initially I thought that the conditions are favourable for Cannizzaro Reaction, but I was instructed (by the book) that it would not give that reaction.
    I guessed and made a product and request verification from the experts in this topic.

    Thanking You.

    First: I don't know the answer. I'm just providing a bit more info. O-chem is really not my thing, but the production of H2O2 is something I had reason to read up on recently. Have a look at the anthraquinone process at Wikipedia. It may confirm your hypothesis or give you another place to look, at least.

    Good luck
