Trialkylammonium fluorochromates(VI), oxidants, oxidation, diols, microwave, room temperature


A mild and efficient method for the mono-oxidation of diols to the corresponding hydroxyaldehydes with trialkylammonium fluorochromates(VI), R3NH[CrO3F] (R= CH3, C2H5, C3H7 and C4H9), in solution at room temperature, and in solution under microwave radiation, is reported. The easy procedure, simple work-up, short reaction times, and excellent yields are advantages of these reagents.
