An efficient and selective solvent-free oxidation of alcohols by shaking with chromium trioxide supported on aluminium silicate.


PMID 18007348

Abstract

A selective oxidation of primary alcohols to the corresponding aldehydes by shaking with chromium trioxide supported on aluminium silicate at room temperature under solvent free conditions is reported. This new procedure can also oxidise secondary alcohols.
