Oxidation of Ethanol to Ethanal

Here is a laboratory exercise where chemistry masters carry out an oxidation reaction to change ethanol into ethanal. They compare the original alcohol to the resulting aldehyde by forming a precipitate. Definitely aimed at learners experienced in the laboratory, this activity concludes by having them determine what type of reactions have taken place, describe the nature of the ethanal, and write chemical equations for all of the reactions that occurred in the process.
