An efficient, economically viable and operationally simple method was developed for deoximation of oximes (of ketones and aldehydes) to their corresponding carbonyl compounds using polymer beads of N, N-dichloro poly(styrene-co-divinylbenzene)sulphonamide resin. Polymeric reagent offered speedy conversion and substantial yields of products under mild condition and is recyclable. Deoximation was monitored by the use of 13C NMR.
