Efficient and selective oxidation of benzoins to corresponding benzils with ferric(III) nitrate nonahydrate supported on kieselguhr reagent under heterogeneous conditions and reflux is described. The present oxidations are completed within 2 h with the yield between 85 and 95%. The main advantage of this oxidation is that the reaction time is much shorter as compared to the other reported ferric(III) nitrate nonahydrate-based reagents.
