Oxidation of Salicylic acid (in solvent t–butyl alcohol) was carried out by chromium trioxide, i.e. Cr (VI) in solvent t-butyl alcohol and using different (substrate: oxidant) molar ratios. Solid product, with oxidized fragments are obtained in the form of chromium complexes. During the process of oxidation, ligands were obtained in the process itself. After purification , the formulae of these complexes were studied and analyzed.
