Abstract: Benzyl and 1-phcnylcthyl bromides are oxidised to benzaldehyde and acetophenone respectively by DMSO in the presence of zinc salts with moderate to high yield. The corresponding alcohol and the thiomethyl ether derivative are formed as by-products. However, 2-phenylethyl bromide affords, under forcing conditions, the corresponding thiomethyl ether and alcohol as major products. This study, besides leading to a new variant of Korn blum Oxidation, has given an insight into its mechanism.
