Abstract

Abstract New methodology for the oxidation of alcohols to ketones in good yield utilizing catalytic amounts of Fe III salts and TBHP as the oxidant is highlighted. Competition between alcohol and hydrocarbon oxidation has been clearly demonstrated. The “normal” Gif-type solvent system (pyridine / acetic acid) can be replaced by the alcohol itself.
