As we learnt in

Oxidation of alcohol -

–  Also known as dehydrogenation reaction.

–  Tertiary alcohol do not undergo oxidation due to lack of \alpha -  hydrogen

- wherein

1.\:\:RCH_{2}-OH+[O]\rightarrow RCHO\rightarrow RCOOH
 

2.\:\:RCH_{2}-OH+[O]+PCC\rightarrow RCHO
 

3.\:\:R-CH(OH)-R'+CrO_{3}\rightarrow R-CO-R'

 

 

  Pyridinium chloro-chromate (PCC) is specific for the conversion.
