# Mechanism for reaction between carboxylic acid and manganese(II) oxide [closed]

I am reading about redox reactions of carboxylic acids with $$\ce{MnO}$$ but I couldn't find any mechanism online,so can any one provide the mechanism.

• @LightYagami The patent page you linked uses $\ce{MnO2}$ as oxidising agent, not MnO – S R Maiti May 24 at 12:54
• Oh, and you'd like a real mechanism, or a reaction scheme? The first is most likely unknown. The second you should try to write yourself. – Mithoron May 24 at 18:34
