Abstract: A series of eight alkyl and aryl α-nitro ketones were prepared by the potassium dichromate oxidation of the corresponding nitro alcohols. Short reaction times allowed for the easy isolation of pure nitro ketones that are devoid of starting materials and/or other oxidation side products.
Keywords: Nitroalcohols; nitroketones; chromate oxidation.
