Selective Synthesis of E and Z Isomers of Oximes
31 December 2001 (online)
The highly stereoselective conversion of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding oximes with hydroxylamin hydrochloride are catalyzed by CuSO4 and K2CO3. This method occurs under mild reaction conditions with high yields.
