Microwave-Assisted Oxidation of Alcohols Using Urea Hydrogen Peroxide
Published: 01 November 2004 by MDPI in The 8th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session Symposium on Microwave Assisted Synthesis
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.
