Applications
Pyridinium chlorochromate is used as an oxidizing agent to convert primary and secondary alcohols to aldehydes and ketones respectively. It is involved in the preparation of cyclohexanone, (-)-pulegone and lactones. It plays an important role in the selective mono-oxidation of xylenes to tolualdehydes and arylhydroxyamines to nitroso compounds. Furthermore, it is utilized as an oxidant for amino acids, L-cystine, aniline, cycloalkanols, vicinal and non-vicinal diols as well as in the Babler oxidation reaction.
