Secondary alcohols yield ketones, which are subsequently oxidized to a mixture of two acids.

Secondary alcohols result from the reduction of ketones; and from the reaction of zinc alkyls on aldehydes or formic acid esters.
The aldehydes and ketones provided material for his earlier work.
He observed that aldehydes and ketones may suffer reduction in neutral, alkaline, and sometimes acid solution to secondary and tertiary glycols, substances which he named pinacones; and also that certain pinacones when distilled with dilute sulphuric acid gave compounds, which he named pinacolines.Advertisement

They combine with aldehydes and ketones, with elimination of water and formation of mercaptals and mercaptols.
The products of oxidation are not yet fully known; most likely they consist of lower fatty acids, such as formic and acetic acids, and perhaps also of aldehydes and ketones.

Ketoacidosis If you are producing ketones and are not treated with insulin, you will develop a serious condition called ketoacidosis.
But when you have diabetes rising blood glucose and rising blood ketones can go together.

Burning fat produces chemicals called ketones.Advertisement
Ketosis. Ketosis is a state in which the body is burning fat and producing ketones.
Ketones are a by-product of fat metabolism, and the state of ketosis should not be confused with ketoacidosis, which is a life-threatening condition that may be developed by diabetics who are burning fat too quickly.
The fatigue is caused by the body switching over from burning glucose to burning ketones for energy, it only lasts a few days.
Ketosis and dieting accelerate fat loss as the liver converts fat to ketones.
Diets that provide adequate protein protect your lean muscle tissue and burn fat in the form of ketones.
Ketones are a source of fuel that provide energy for the body.
This fuel is produced by the liver through the breakdown of body fat into fatty acids and ketones.
These fatty acids are released into the bloodstream and the body converts them to ketones.
Excess ketones are eliminated through urination.
However, following a low-carb diet helps the body use ketones as fuel instead of glucose.
Ketones are a byproduct of this conversion.

It occurs by lowering carbohydrate intake to such a level that ketones are present in your bloodstream.
Ketosis in low carb diets is a metabolic state that occurs when ketones are present in your body.
Ketones are generated whenever your body metabolizes fat.
In other words, whenever your body uses fat for energy, it generates ketones.
Ketones can increase your energy levels.
The difference with carbohydrate counting is that the body goes into ketosis which helps the body burn fat when the liver converts fat to ketones.
In fact, during ketosis, the body's main source of energy is ketones, and as a result the body does not burn lean muscle if you take in enough protein.
Once the liver turns fat into ketones, it is excreted.
Simply put, ketosis is a state in which there are elevated ketones in the blood.
Because the brain cannot utilize fatty acids for energy, the liver produces excess ketones so as not to deplete the glycogen stores in the muscles and to prevent the breakdown of body proteins and muscle mass.
