In the present study in order to study the effect of the presence of Zr[O.sub.x] as promoter and to assess the optimum % of Zr[O.sub.x] doping on MnC[O.sub.3] for best catalytic activity as catalyst for secondary alcohol oxidation, we examined the effect of % Zr[O.sub.x] in the catalytic system by varying load of Zr[O.sub.x] on MnC[O.sub.3] supports from 0 to 7% in the catalyst MnC[O.sub.3], that is, calcined at 300[degrees]C and the obtained catalysts were tested for their catalytic activity.

At treat rates to deliver approximately 760 ppm phosphorus, secondary alcohol ZnDTP decreases LSPI compared to primary alcohol ZnDTP.
For fitting parameters such as the fraction of primary versus secondary alcohol content, fitting parameters to experimental data can be performed with confidence due to the reactivity of the primary alcohols being more than an order of magnitude greater than the reactivity of the secondary alcohols.

The abuse of alcohol can then result in unintentional injury to the drinker, as well as secondary alcohol effects to those exposed to the drinking behaviors of others (Logan et al., 2012; Hingson et al., 2005; Kapner, 2008).
Narasimhan et al used calcium borohydride for the selective hydroboration, but found that on scaling up there is also the formation of secondary alcohol. Therefore, we wish to report an alternate synthesis of Z-11-hexadecenol, with >99% isomeric purity.
