Short Note

Answer the following question.
Why is the conversion of ethanol to ethanoic acid considered an oxidation reaction? Write the oxidizing agent used in the reaction involved.

Solution

In the conversion of ethanol to ethanoic acid, a very strong oxidizing agent alkaline potassium permanganate is used which donates oxygen to the ethanol to form ethanoic acid. Since the addition of oxygen to a compound is termed as oxidation, this reaction is considered as an oxidation reaction.
In this process, the oxidizing agent used is alkaline potassium permanganate.
