Wysocki, Jedrzej; Teles, Joaquim Henrique; Dehn, Richard; Trapp, Oliver; Schaefer, Bernd; Schaub, Thomas (2018): Photoinduced Direct Conversion of Cyclohexane into Cyclohexanone Oxime using LEDs. In: Chemphotochem, Vol. 2, No. 1: pp. 22-26

A selective direct photochemical transformation of cyclohexane into cyclohexanone oxime using tert-butyl nitrite and UV LED diodes is described. The reaction allows the direct introduction of an oxime group into a hydrocarbon using a simple set-up in one step that proceeds in a clean fashion, a transformation which technically would require several steps. This straightforward method may provide a valuable alternative to significantly more expensive common procedures for the synthesis of cyclohexanone oxime, a key precursor to the Nylon-6 polymer.
