|Abstract||Two stage electrochemical oxidation of toluene, p-ethoxy toluene, o-chloro toluene and p-isopropyl toluene to their corresponding aldehydes were carried out using Ce4+ Ce3+ redox mediator in methane sulphonic acid medium. Ceric methane sulphonate was prepared as homogeneous solution as well as yellow crystalline solid in 2 M methane sulphonic acid under optimized conditions. The order of ease of chemical oxidation of these compounds is as follows: p-Ethoxy toluene Toluene p-isopropyl toluene o-chloro toluene. The duration of chemical oxidation depends on the reaction temperature and the concentration of methane sulphonic acid. Higher concentration of methane sulphonic acid decreases the duration of oxidation. The yield of p-ethoxy benzaldehyde, benzaldehyde, o-chloro benzaldehyde and p-methyl acetophenone is 95%, 93%, 70% and 37% respectively. P-Isopropyl toluene interestingly gave p-methyl acetophenone as the major product and hence the yield of corresponding aldehyde was low|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and 9 other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
