Abstract

A mild and efficient alternative procedure for a quantitative conversion of alcohols into the corresponding carbonyl compounds uses dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), activated by 2,4,6-trichloro[1,3,5]-triazine (cyanuric chloride, TCT) instead of the toxic and moisture sensitive oxalyl chloride under Swern conditions.
