- ... Deep eutectic solvent (DES) has been identified as a highly efficient catalyst and reaction medium, for rapid oxidation of alcohols to aldehydes and ketones using N-bromosuccinimide as the oxidant. This mild procedure utilizes biodegradable and readily available choline chloride/urea-based DES for high-yield oxidation at room temperature or at 60 °C. Selective oxidation of secondary alcohols in th ...
