Put the peroxodisulfate ion (S2O82-) in the phase transfer catalyst banzyltriphenylphosphonium can make a catalyst with mild oxidation property, and used it for oxidation of Benzylhalides to corresponding Benzylaldehyde Compounds. For making catalyst used xylene and water as solvent, and it was an easy process with high yield. Oxidation used in reflux condition with acetonitrile as solvent. The advantages of this oxidation: high yield and short time.
