Abstract: Aromatic aldehydes bearing electron-donating groups are easily converted into their respective nitriles using NH2OH·HCl and TiO2 under microwave irradiation, while those bearing an electron-withdrawing group give the corresponding oximes.
Keywords: titanium dioxide; aldehydes; nitriles; oximes; microwave irradiation
