When Secondary and Tertiary alcohol is oxidised then no carboxylic acid is formed....so why oxygen cant replace carbon to form carboxylic acid? And why functional groups cant replace carbon instead of hydrogen?

Hello student,

The breaking and forming of bond in chemistry is dependent on bond dissociattion and formation enthalpy. Things are not that much easy. The C-C bond is very strong and difficult to break. So reaction dont proceed in that direction as it does not have enough energy to do so.

I have attached image for the same go through that it would be helpful.

All the best
