Abstract

Oxime is an important precursor for many reactions like Beckmann rearrangement, oxime ether preparation etc. Oxime is generally prepared in strong acidic [1], strong basic [2] medium. Even some methods involving mild basic medium [3]is also known. But these procedures involve hazardous chemicals like inorganic acid, inorganic base, organic bases like Pyridine[4], Hyamine[5] etc. Some green methodologies have been also developed but that also involve expensive reagents like Bi2O3[6] etc. Here in we report the preparation of oxime in a mild basic medium. Alumina (Al2O3) is pretty cheap and not mentionable hazardous and it has been used here for the first time in synthesis of oxime.
