Hi everyone! i've been doing some research about the formation of oximes from aldehydes and was wondering what is the easiest way that also gives the best yields. I am using hydroxylamine and sodium carbonate. ( would NaOH be better ) also is stirring necessary? For the moment I am mixing my aldehyde in Etoh, adding hydroxylamine in H2O, adding sodium carbonate, stir about 4h then let everything cool over night in a ice bath. What would be your suggestions?
