Chromium trioxide resin has been used to oxidize secondary alcohols to their corresponding ketones. Specifically 9-fluorenol has been oxidized to 9-fluorenone. The reagent chromium trioxide resin, is a reagent of interest because of its ability to be recycled and reused. In this study the efficacy of chromium trioxide resin is determined.
