oa South African Journal of Chemistry - Solvent-free Oxidation of Alcohols and Mild Catalytic Deprotection of Silyl Ethers with Poly(-dibromo--ethyl-benzene-1,3-disulphonamide) and -tetrabromobenzene-1,3-disulphonamide

Volume 60, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0379-4350



Poly(-dibromo--ethyl-benzene-1,3-disulphonamide) (PBBS) and -tetrabromobenzene-1,3-disulphonamide (TBBDA) can be used for solvent-free oxidation of primary and secondary alcohols to the corresponding carbonyl compounds without over-oxidation, and efficient catalytic deprotection of various silyl ethers to hydroxyl groups in aprotic organic solvents under ambient conditions.
