Reagent SeO2 (hindi) Selenium dioxide oxidation Riley oxidation part 1

In this tutorial we saw synthetic utility of Selenium dioxide reagent in organic chemistry .
The allylic alcohol and ketone or aldehyde can be synthesized using seo2 .
This is very selective reagent reaction can stop at alcohol level . It does not affect the
double bond hence chemo selective reagent.
Using Seo2 we can do oxidation of carbonyl group to form or synthesis of
1,2 di carbonyl group ,allylic and bezylic oxidation can done with selectivity
Mechanism of oxidation is also explained. Dehydrogenation can be done by SeO2
Oxidation of alkyne also produce acid or carbonyl ( ketone or aldehyde ).
