The Cornforth Reagent is an oxidizing agent that converts both secondary and primary alcohols into ketones and aldehydes, and ketones, respectively. In terms of chemical structure and properties, it is closely linked to other compounds derived from Hexavalent chromium Oxides, such as pyridinium chlorochromate, and Collins reagent. Due to their toxic nature, the reagents aren’t widely employed in modern times.
