SHIRI, LOTFI and GHORBANI-CHOGHAMARANI, ARASH. 2,4,6-TRIMETHYLPYRIDINIUM CHLOROCHROMATE (TMPCC) AS AN EFFICIENT AND NOVEL OXIDIZING AGENT FOR THE CHEMOSELECTIVE OXIDATION OF ALCOHOLS TO THE CORRESPONDING CARBONYL COMPOUNDS. J. Chil. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2009, vol.54, n.2, pp. 191-193. ISSN 0717-9707. doi: 10.4067/S0717-97072009000200022.
A simple and efficient chemoselective oxidation of alcohols to the corresponding aldehydes and ketones using 2,4,6-trimethylpyridinium chlorochromate (TMPCC) in acetonitrile was described. A good range of primary and secondary benzylic alcohols was selectively oxidized under reflux conditions in good to excellent yields.
