A simple, mild and efficient method has been developed for the oxidation of alcohols to aldehydes and ketones using Oxone® as oxidant catalyzed by n-Bu4NBr at room temperature in water under UV lamp for 1 h. Oxone® smoothly oxidizes benzyl alcohol and its derivatives, benzhydrol and its derivatives.

Keywords: Photo-catalytic oxidation, alcohols, Oxone®, water, aldehydes, ketones
