      High yield PSDIB Oxidation of Alcohols (1/2)  Bookmark   

Abstract: Primary and secondary alcohols were successfully oxidized to the corresponding aldehydes and ketones in good yields, respectively, with poly[4-(diacetoxyiodo)styrene] (PSDIB) in the presence of TEMPO (cat.) in acetone, as an environment-friendly method.

This is an example of selective, less toxic (especially, non-metallic), and secure oxidation of primary and secondary alcohols to the corresponding aldehydes and ketones, respectively, under mild conditions.
