ABSTRACT

Efficient oxidation of various types of structurally diverse alcohols to the corresponding carbonyl compounds can be carried out with N, N,-dibromo-N, N,-1,2-ethanediylbis(benzenesulphonamide) in good to high yield of products in CH2Cl2 at room temperature. Primary (aliphatic, benzylic and allylic) alcohols are oxidized with no over-oxidation to carboxylic acids.

Keywords: Oxidation, alcohols, carbonyl compounds, N, N,-dibromo-N, N,-1,2-ethanediylbis (benzenesulphonamide)
