I've seen mechanisms for $\ce{MnO4-}$ in base reacting with primary and secondary alcohols to oxidise them, but what about $\ce{MnO4-}$ in acid?

All the ones I've found have either been referring to $\ce{MnO4-}$ in base or just showed the redox reaction occurring. I've been trying to look for one for a while now, but I still haven't found a satisfying one (i.e. one that goes beyond showing the reaction in redox equation form).

I hope anyone who knows anything about it can answer me on that, and as thoroughly as you can. Thanks.
