Chromic acid, H2CrO4 , is a strong acid in presence of acetone it act as good oxidising agent also know as Jones oxidising agents and is a reagent for oxidizing alcohols to ketones and carboxylic acids.
In place of comic acid we can use Na2CrO4 (sodium chromate), Na2Cr2O7 (sodium dichromate), KCrO4 (potassium chromate), K2Cr2O7 (potassium dichromate), and CrO3 (chromium trioxide) are alike in one crucial manner: when they are combined with aqueous acid, each of them forms H2CrO4 , and ultimately it is H2CrO4 that is involved in the important chemistry.
This is a sufficiently mild oxidising agent, so that it oxidises alcohols without oxidising or rearranging double bonds. MnO2 can oxidise 1° allylic or 1° benzylic alcohols selectively into aldehydes.
