Answer:

Tertiary alcohols (R3COH) are resistant to oxidation because the carbon atom that carries the OH group does not have a hydrogen atom attached but is instead bonded to other carbon atoms. ... The carbon-to-hydrogen bonding is easily broken under oxidative conditions, but carbon-to-carbon bonds are not.
