This video lecture from Carboxylic Acids  (F.Sc. second year Chemistry) covers the preparation of carboxylic acids from Grignard reagents. The alkyl chain on the magnesium atom acts as a nucleophile and attacks an aldehyde in a Nucleophilic addition reaction forming an alcohol. The alcohol can then be oxidized to carboxylic acid as discussed previously. A simple single carbon alkane can be turned into a carboxylic acid of any desired chain length using this mechanism.
