Pcc is an oxidizing agent. It converts alcohols to carbonyls, but is not strong enough to convert a primary alcohol into a carboxylic acid. It only converts primary alcohols to aldehydes, and secondary alcohols to ketones. 1-pentanol is a primary alcohol so it will be converted to the aldehyde pentanal.
What Does Pcc Do?
The Positive Community Corrections (PCC) program is a unique and effective way to help people who are struggling with addiction and other life–changing challenges.
PCC is a court–mandated, long–term, residential treatment program that provides a safe and structured environment for people to live while they work on their recovery. PCC is based on the 12–Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and includes individual and group therapy, as well as education and life–skills training.
Participants are also required to complete community service and pay restitution. The program is designed to help participants become productive, contributing members of society.
PCC has a proven track record of success. Studies have shown that participants who complete the program are less likely to re–offend and are more likely to stay sober and employed.
PCC is an affordable alternative to incarceration that not only benefits the participants, but also the community. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, PCC may be the right choice.
