Abstract: The oxidations of some simple secondary alcohols by hydrogen peroxide urea adduct (UHP) using microwaves as an energy source is described. The reaction results in appropriate carbonyl compound. The observed higher yield and shortening of the reaction time was observed for microwave-assisted process comparing to the conventional conditions.
