Novel synthetic uses of oxoammonium ions enabling facile and efficient oxidation of several classes of alcohols to their related carbonyl compounds have been exploited on the basis of two strategies: (i) modifying the molecular framework of the oxoammonium ion, and (ii) enhancing its reactive nature by altering the counter ion. The reaction systems developed allow: (1) efficient oxidation of sterically crowded secondary alcohols to ketones; (2) facile, one-pot oxidation of primary alcohols to carboxylic acids; (3) oxidative rearrangement of tertiary allylic alcohols to β-substituted α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds under transition-metal-free conditions.
