Tandem oxidation processes: The direct conversion of activated alcohols into oximes; synthesis of citaldoxime

H Kanno, R J K Taylor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The direct conversion of primary alcohols into oximes is reported using manganese dioxide and alkoxylamines/hydroxylamine as their hydrochloride salts or supported on Amberlyst 15. This transformation has been applied to a range of benzylic, allylic and proparaylic alcohols and utilised to prepare the natural product citaldoxime.
