Efficient and convenient oxidation of benzyl halides to carbonyl compounds with Sodium nitrate and Acetic acid by phase transfer catalysis in aqueous media

Yu Lin Hu, Wei Wei, Qi Fa Liu, Ming Lu

Abstract


A variety of benzyl halides were converted to the corresponding aldehydes/ketones in good to high yields by phase transfer catalysis combined with sodium nitrate and acetic acid at reflux. As a result, a simple and high yield procedure has been developed.

 

KEY WORDS: Oxidation, Benzyl halides, Phase transfer catalyst, Sodium nitrate
