Efficient oxidation of various types of structurally diverse alcohols to the corresponding carbonyl compounds can be carried out with '-dibromo-'-1,2-ethanediylbis(benzenesulphonamide) in good to high yield of products in CHCl at room temperature. Primary (aliphatic, benzylic and allylic) alcohols are oxidized with no over-oxidation to carboxylic acids.
