A Facile Procedure for the Conversion of Oximes to Ketones and Aldehydes with Potassium Dichromate in Dimethylformamide under Homogeneous Conditions

Received07 Oct 2011
Accepted03 Dec 2011


Oxidative cleavage of oximes to their parent corresponding carbonyl compounds using potassium dichromate-dimethylformamide system under homogeneous conditions in good yields is described. The main advantage of the present method is no need of preparation of hexavalent chromium-based reagents due to using a polar aprotic solvent.
