N-Methylbenzylammonium fluorochromate(VI) (MBAFC) is easily synthesized by addition of N-methylbenzylamine to an aqueous solution of CrO3 and HF. MBAFC shows selectivity in the oxidation of aryl alcohols to their corresponding aldehydes and ketones under mild conditions. The durability, ease of work up and efficiency of MBAFC are considerably increased upon its absorption on silica gel.
