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.
